Don’t you feel like a kid again just looking at these!? Not to mention they’re the easiest things to bake. If you could bake funfetti as a kid, you can bake these too.

Thanks to Simple Mills this vanilla cake mix comes from a box and is delicious with all clean and organic ingredients. When the ingredient list is super short and easy to read AND every single ingredient is familiar, you know you picked the winning box.

Thanksgiving is a time for giving thanks not just to others but to ourselves as well. Let’s give thanks to all of the great experiences in our lives that have made us who we are today. The ones that got us through the good times but also the bad times, the ones that made us stronger and more deeply connected to our truth.

It’s so important to acknowledge how far we’ve come. Whether we had major life changes or just small changes in our daily life that happened because of decisions we made. Neither is better than the other. They are all created equal and they are equally important.

The small steps lead up to the big picture. Don’t forget that every step counts!

So this thanksgiving is not about what we can do “better” in the next year and all that we need to change from this year. Let’s flip our perspective and give thanks to all that has gone WELL this year. All of the experiences that have served us and made us better people. Let’s move into the holiday season thinking about all the things that were worth it because they brought us one step closer to being the best version of ourselves.


So… who’s ready for the holiday?

P.S. – I used a mini donut pan + mini muffin pan but the recipe works on a regular muffin or cake pan.

  1. Melt coconut oil and let sit to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 350*. Grease loaf pan or muffin pan with light coating of coconut oil, or you can use parchment paper/cupcake liners. If you are using parchment paper, spread a small amount on the bottom so it sticks to the pan and helps for easy pouring of the batter!
  3. In large bowl, whisk together eggs, oil, water, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add baking mix as well as cinnamon, clove and ginger. Whisk until well blended.
  5. Spoon batter into 12 muffin cups (2/3 full) or loaf pan.
  6. Bake 15-20 mins. Stick with cake tester and make sure it comes out clean.
  7. *Optional*: heat up a small amount of coconut oil in a pan on the stove. Once melted, add eating evolved signature dark bar and mix around until the bar is melted. Pour and drizzle over cupcakes or cake! (or you can just dip and dunk!)
