Cake Mix Muffins

I get up each morning at 5:30, in order to cook breakfast for my family.  During breakfast, my husband leads our family in Bible Study.  I look for quick recipes that are somewhat healthy. These cake mix muffins can be changed up in so many ways.  I serve these with some sort of protein (ham, sausage links, etc)  Pick one and give it try.  If you have other variations, please share!!

Fruit Pie Filling/Cake Mix muffins

One can of pie filling of your choice

One box of cake mix**

3 eggs

Mix the three ingredients together.  This will be thick!  Place in muffin cups to 3/4 full.  Bake on 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.  This makes 16 large muffins.  These muffins are 180 calories and 2.7 grams of fat.  I use yellow cake mix with apple or peach pie filling.  Blueberry pie filling will make the muffins a funny color, but the family didn’t mind.

Variations: Strawberry cake mix/strawberry pie filling; Spice cake mix/peach pie filling; chocolate cake mix/chocolate pie filling;  Nuts, raisins, cranberries, trail mix, granola, flax, oats, etc.
