Quick {Pumpkin} Muffins

Oh, Pinterest.  Must you make my days so full of longing for amazing food?

The bigger problem?  Dieting.   It's not that I hate dieting.  At least, no more than the next guy. 
The problem is when you start to scroll Pinterest.  You can enjoy all of these beautiful looking recipes, but then you remember you're in a death match with two friends to see who can lose a certain percentage of body mass the quickest.

The result?  Really random dieting foods.  As we all know by now, breakfast is a problem for me. As in, I don't ever eat it, and that's where your daily diet is supposed to start.

The solution, however, is seemingly more simple than I imagined.  And it tastes SO GOOD.
Imagine the buttery flavor of a classic yellow cake.  Or the more savory richness of devil's food cake.  Now, put those into a muffin.     Bam!  Done!  That's right, no pumpkin flavor, just the box mix.

Ingredients: 1 box mix, 1 (15oz) can of pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie puree, just pumpkin)

Directions: Mix dry cake mix and pureed pumpkin.  Place in greased muffin tins.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (use a toothpick).  Serve and enjoy.
