Lowfat Pumpkin Spice Muffins - YUM!

These are great for a snack or with soup....De-Lish! You'll never guess these are made with pumpkin! And they're lowfat too!

Pumpkin Spice Muffins

1 - 18 ozs. spice cake mix (chocolate is great also)

1 - 15 ozs. can pumpkin puree
2/3  - 1 cup water

Preheat oven to 350.  Spray muffin tins with nonstick cooking spray or line with 24 paper liners.  Combine cake mix, pumpkin and water.  With electric mixer, beat on low speed for 1 minute.  Beat on medium speed for 2 more minutes.  Divide batter evenly into 24 muffin cups.  Take 18 - 20 minutes or until done, being careful not to overbake. Cool on wire rack.  Top with a dollop of fat-free whipped topping to serve, if desired.

P.S. - if you want to try a chocolate 50% reduced-sugar cake mix, be sure to check the muffins a few minutes early, because splenda tends to bake faster.  *-*
