4 Ingredient, Gluten Free, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

4 Ingredient, Gluten Free, Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

You’ve probably seen the super easy pumpkin muffins/bars you can make using just a spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I wanted to whip these up for some friends coming over for dinner that are on a gluten free diet, but realized they were not gluten free. I quickly needed a substitution for this easy recipe. Turns out it’s just as easy and delicious – even if it is gluten free!!!

gluten free pumpkin muffin ingredients

Ingredients:

**Gluten Free White Cake Mix (I used Wegmans store brand)
**15 oz can of pumpkin
**2 1/2 tsp. of Pumpkin Pie Spice
**1 12 oz bag of semi-sweet chocolate chips
**Cupcake liners (you can get the reusable silicone ones like I used over on Amazon!)

Baking Instructions:

Mix the gluten free white cake mix with 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of pumpkin pie spice.  After that is fully mixed, add the 1 can of pumpkin.  Stir it well (it will be thick) and fold in the chocolate chips.  Scoop evenly into un-greased silicone baking cups.  If you use paper cupcake liners, you should give each a quick spray of cooking oil.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
