Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Muffins


This past weekend we made a trip to Trader Joe’s. I love that place!! Not only do they always have good deals but everything I get is healthy and made with minimal ingredients which I love.

On my trip, I purchased a package of Pumpkin Muffin mix that I heard was super tasty.



The package instructions were to add 1 cup of water, 2 eggs, & 1/2 cup of oil. Since I rarely follow a recipe completely by the instructions I decided to do 1/4 cup of organic vanilla yogurt and 1/4 cup of oil. This way we cut the fat in 1/2!!

This batch made 12 medium size muffins and 12 mini-muffins. I figured the mini-muffins would be great to take on-the-go! I also decided that I was going to freeze some of the bigger muffins to have handy once the baby comes and I need a quick little snack.

On a random note… When we took Cooper for a walk this past Sunday look what he found!!!

I guess he is allowed to pick up trash every once in a while :) Speaking of Cooper, he loves the new carpet we got on our stairs, it is his new hang out! The carpet is part of our baby-proofing to make sure we don’t slip carrying the baby around the house.
