Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Even though Fall isn't here yet, the weather has been giving us a short glimpse as to what the upcoming autumn season will bring. I have wanted to make these muffins/cupcakes for a while now, especially because they are low calorie, aren't we all trying to lose weight? If you have these 4 ingredients, you can whip these up this afternoon!

I call these Cinnamon Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes.


1 box Spice cake mix
1 15oz can of pumpkin
½ C water
¾ C Cinnamon chips
In a medium sized bowl empty the cake mix, pumpkin, and water. Using a mixer, mix the ingredients until smooth. Gently fold in the cinnamon chips. (For kicks and giggles, I added a few dashes of cinnamon and vanilla to the batter!)

Line a muffin tin with baking cups. Using an ice cream scoop, fill wells 2/3 of the way full. Place in a 350 degree oven for 18-21 minutes. *All ovens vary: my oven cooks hotter, so I lowered the temp and cooked them for 18 minutes.

Depending on how you want to eat them, these can be muffins or cupcakes. If you want them to be breakfast muffins, you can either leave these plain, or make them with a streusel topping.  If you want these to be cupcakes, you can make an icing like I did!


Mix 8oz low fat cream cheese with 1 cup powdered sugar. Add in 1 tsp vanilla, a few sprinkles of cinnamon, 1 tablespoon of maple syrup, and a few dashes of milk. Mix with a mixer and frost. Delicious!
