I just made these 2 days ago following the recipe exactly. They were super easy. I found that mixing the batter up & down vs. in circles made it easier to mix on my wrist. I made 15 muffins and there's only 5 left so I guess my family enjoyed them. They came our really moist but for me just a little too bland. Next time I might add some vanilla or some cinnamon to the mix. Def making them again.

These are okay. A bit dry - I took them out at 15 minutes instead of 20, and I'll bake them even less next time. They also took some time to mix. The final "batter" is more the consistency of a stiff cookie dough, so much so that I'll consider rolling it in balls before baking next time to improve the shape of the finished product. All that said, you cannot beat the simplicity of this recipe, nor the improvement in nutrition over regular cake. We'll make this one again - might try with spice cake mix next time.

Really good, especially for folks who need a low-fat alternative but still want good chocolate flavor. I use stand mixer for ease of preparation. The pumpkin makes mixing somewhat challenging, mixer makes short work of it. Healthy, tasty, what more can you ask?

I was very hopeful that these would be good, but I'm not impressed. I used a brownie mix so they are plenty sweet, but they still taste undercooked. I wish there was some way to fluff them up to the texture of a brownie.

I made these as directed and we really enjoyed them. I made 12 big muffins. These were so easy to make and very tasty.

I just baked these! The house smelled so yummy! I only altered a bit, I added a teaspoon of vanilla, and also put some currants and dried berries in it. The combo was weird at first, but the flavor was super yummy. Just came out a bit dry for my taste, next time I think I will add 2 mashed bananas to it. Totally making this again!

True. Not really a brownie, but a good healthier alternative for a chocolate fix.

These were more like regular cupcakes but they taste amazing! My arms were killing me when I was mixing it but its ok since I'm burning more calories! Haha. I didn't have enough pumpkin so I used less of the cake mix so that might have affected the recipie.

At first I wasn't too impressed, but they grew on me. The second time I made them, I added a few semi-sweet chocolate chips, which helped alot!
