A Delicious Fall Treat
Last month on the Somewhat Simple Facebook page, we shared a link to our recipe for Cake Mix Cookies. One of our favorite followers left us a comment about her favorite cake mix cookie that sounded delicious! She said she mixes 1 box of spice cake mix with a can of pumpkin puree and bakes the batter into cookies- YUM!!!
So I gave it a shot. I played around with those ingredients and added some chocolate chips until I found my new favorite cookie creation. These soft pumpkin cookie bites were so easy to make and use only 3 ingredients! They’re so good, you can enjoy them all season long.
How To Make Pumpkin Cookie Bites
Use Just The Mix – Grab your 3 ingredients. Toss the cake mix in a bowl, omitting all the other ingredients on the back of the box. You won’t need to use the eggs or oil. Empty the entire can of canned pumpkin into the cake mix, and stir until combined. If you want to try Homemade Pumpkin Puree, this recipe is perfect!
Fill & Cook – Scoop the batter and fill each ramekin in a mini muffin tin. Place them in the oven and then bake them for about 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees F.
Bedazzle Them – Pull the pumpkin cookie bites out of the oven and immediately sprinkle with mini chocolate chips. Let them cool. You can drizzle some melted chocolate over the top, if you’d like, for an extra fancy touch.

I was wondering can you use yellow cake mix instead? How about sugar free spice cake mix?
Yes, you can use a yellow cake mix instead but it will affect the taste some. And yes, a sugar free spice mix should work as well.
Thank you so much. I’m planning to make these this week – just gotta get to the store. They look so yummy!
Thanks for stopping by! Let me know how they turn out.
Is it a 15oz can of pumpkin? Is the 950 calories for the whole batch?
Yes! 15oz can of pumpkin and 950 calories for all 24 cookies. I’ll come over and split the pan with you so we can each eat 475 calories, if that’s ok with you? 🙂
