Healthy but Delicious Devil's Food Cupcakes

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by StephanieNS

Only two ingredients in this recipe, devil's food cake mix and canned pumpkin. Sounds like it wouldn't be very good but it is! These cupcakes turn out moist and are surprisingly chocolatey tasting, you barely detect the pumpkin taste at all. And because there's no oil or eggs they are a healthy alternative to your typical cupcake. Make sure to use pure pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling! You could also add chocolate chips, nuts, etc. to pep these up a little.
