    Taste greaCould you clarify how you got nutritional informaion. I used a whole box of cake mix (not sure how you couldnt). Cake mix for whole box= 2160, pumpkin - 120, chocolate chips = 80 caleries per tsp. If you take my calculations you would end up with 215 per serving. Could you clarify? - 8/26/08

    They are AMAZING!!! I left out the chocolate chips, and used and low sugar devil's food mix with a little water. So low calorie, so moist and delicious, 1 gram of fat for mine when I calculated!!! My whole house smells like rich chocolate & my fiance is passing on ice cream & eating muffins, THANKS! - 2/10/09

    i made this recipe tonight. I recalculated the calories. I used Pillsbury reduced sugar devils food mix, the same amount of pumpkin, half the amount of chips, and about 1/2 a cup of water. The calories turned out to be 128 calories each-- I made 21 muffins with the mix. - 10/7/09

    I made them with an off brand devels food with fewer calories and no chocolate chips. I also added 1/3 cup water to thin out the batter. 87 calories/ serving if you make 24! - 1/29/09

    i made these before without chocolate chips and they were so good! make sure you use a small can of pumpkin or they won't cook correctly.. sadly i made that miskake the first time i tried. it also works better if you use a cake mix that does not have pudding in the mix. - 1/23/09

    These are wonderful. I made them using canned pumpkin and the reduced sugar cake mix. Nothing else but a little water. Perfect! 12 servings = 161 calories each. - 10/27/09

    When you need a chocolate fix, these will definitely do the trick. My boyfriend and co-workers loved them. The batter was so thick and very hard to mix so I did add about 1/3 cup of water. I am also absentminded and left them in the oven way longer than I was supposed to & they were fine. Foolproof! - 2/12/09

    CALORIE DISCREPENCY ANSWERED (I believe): You cannot calculate the whole cake box into your calories considering that you are not using the eggs and oil. Subtract the calories for those things from the box total and add the pumpkin instead. Voila! - 4/11/10

  • Wished I would have read the ratings for this recipe first. I made these thinking they were low cal and was eating 3 or 4 at a time because they were so AWESOME!! Depending on the brands you use cal count my be a little off. I can up with 207 cal each. Wish they were the 95 as stated : ( - 1/21/13

  • I made this recipe this morning omitting the chocolate chips to reduce calories. I was skeptical with the pumpkin, but they turned out delicious! I also added 1/3 cup of water to thin out the batter. It made 21 muffins. Thanks for the recipe. I am excited to experiment with different cake mixes. - 1/22/12

  • These had a great taste but they werent muffins at all, they looked liked hocky pucks and were really gooey inside. I even tried making them twice with a friend and we couldnt get them to turn out at all. What could I have done wrong. Are you suppose to use the whole box of cake mix or only one serv - 9/21/11

  • I made this, but did not get under 100 kcals. It was absolutely delicious, anyway!
    Moist Deluxe Devil's Food (Duncan Hines): 180(mix alone)*12= 2160
    Kroger Pumpkin (15oz): 50(half-cup) *3(entire container)= 150
    (2160+150)/18 = (roughly) 130kcals/muffin - 1/20/11

  • These were good even my teenage son loved them, and he avoids anything referred to as healthy. I made these with a reduced sugar cake mix and added 6 Tablespoons ground flax. I also added 1/2 cup water and used 1/2 cup milk chocolate chips. Mine made 23 muffins at 118 calories each. - 3/5/10

  • I made these today! 1 box of Pillsbury Devils Food, 1 sm can pumpkin & about 1/2 cup of mini Nestle Choc-chips. I added 1 tsp Van ext and a dash of cinn, nutmeg and ginger. I used a mini muffin pan, baked for 10 min each on 375. I can still taste pumpkin in there, but not much - TRY THESE! - 2/2/10

  • So incredible for low calorie! Even my family didn't know they were healthy! I was very hesitant with the pumpkin, but you can't even taste the pumpkin! I also used half of the choc chips for less calories, and I think the original calories may be off some, but it is GREAT! - 1/26/10
