After scouring the internet for an easy pumpkin muffin to make in my dorm, I stumbled across this three-ingredient recipe that seemed too good to be true.

I consider myself a good judge of all things pumpkin, so I had to try it out for myself. Being a chocolate lover, I decided to add some chocolate chips to the top before baking. I can safely say that these easy air fryer pumpkin muffins are a simple and delicious way to get your pumpkin fix. 

To start, all you need is your air fryer, cupcake liners, a can opener, mixing bowl and something to mix with.

    Preheat your air fryer to 375° F. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the pumpkin puree with the spice cake mix. Stir until all the lumps are gone (it might take a few minutes).

    Fill your cupcake tins about 3/4 of the way full with batter. Finish them off with some chocolate chips and arrange the muffins in your air fryer (I was able to bake six at a time).
