Based solely on the name of this week’s recipe, we’re guessing that some of you might be a bit cynical, wondering how in the world a 2-ingredient muffin can be achieved without breaking every tooth you have.
But according to our go-to cheater recipe provider Susan Stephens, not only are 2-ingredient muffins possible, they’re quite tasty as well. If Susan isn’t careful, she might find herself in a full-time cheater recipe finder position.
“Yes, this (recipe) does work!” Susan said. “These are very moist muffins. I thought they were even better the next day.”
She suggests serving the muffins warm with reduced fat cream cheese.

Prepare two muffin tins with cupcake papers.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the cake mix and pumpkin until smooth, about 2 minutes. Stir in nuts and fruit if using (I used chopped walnuts and chopped dates).
