Easy Pumpkin Spice Muffins: Smart Holiday Baking with #CartonSmart #ad

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
We are really trying to be greener and more thoughtful this holiday season and one of the ways that we are doing this is trying to Become Carton Smart!  It's so easy to make the change from cans to Tetra Pak® cartons!  With 1/3 of the packaging compared to cans, and made of 70% paper that is FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council), Tetra Pak® cartons help preserve the flavor and nutrients of food without preservatives!

I received three great Carton Smart Tetra Pak® cartons to help make our holidays better!

Pumpkin Spice MuffinsMost of you know that I was away all last week visiting family in Toronto, but you probably didn't know that it meant that I am behind the eight ball with my holiday baking so this year I scaled back and really tried hard to only make easy family favorites that I knew everyone would love!  Robyn is a huge pumpkin pie fan, but she's the only one who is, so I made some yummy Pumkin Spice Muffins instead and they are so quick and easy - just two ingredients: 
1 Box of Spice Cake Mix
1 Carton Pacific Food Pumpkin Puree
Just mix them together while you are preheating the oven and fill your muffin cups about 2/3 full.  Bake for 18-20 minutes and top with your favorite icing or for a decadent holiday treat, top with whipped cream!
Wayne was also pleased to see the Pacific Foods Cranberry Sauce - which came in a resealable package - because he loves adding Cranberry Sauce to his leftover turkey sandwiches and the Tetra Pak® was perfect for taking in and out of the fridge:

You can find so many other#CartonSmart products these days and reduce both your footprint and the amount of preservatives you are serving your family!  I totally recommend checking out how you can become more Carton Smart in 2014!
