Pumpkin snickerdoodle muffins

Since today is November 1st, I thought it was only fair to share a pumpkin recipe with you. I can’t seem to get enough of it! These pumpkin snickerdoodle muffins are so good and super easy to make!

One of my favorite things to do when baking is to doctor up a cake mix. You guys know I’m all about saving time in the kitchen. For these muffins I used the Krusteaz cinnamon crumb cake mix (my favorite mix). Then I substituted a can of pumpkin for the oil and eggs. I also added in some pumpkin spice and nutmeg to bring out all the yummy pumpkin flavor.

I didn’t end up using all of the cinnamon sugar, but you can add as much as you’d like! The more the better!
