Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins
These Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins combine the flavors of zucchini bread with pumpkin for a fun fall twist! My family loved these muffins, especially my two year old. If you’re looking for a way to add veggies to a little one’s diet (or a picky adult…no judgement here) without them noticing, these muffins can help! The canned pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice blend give these muffins rich autumn flavor and also make them smell amazing while baking. Plus, they’re a perfect recipe for early fall if you’re trying to use up zucchini from your garden but you’re ready for pumpkin spice season to begin. These Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins make a great snack or breakfast, and each one is just 113 calories, or 4 WW SmartPoints on the Green, Blue and Purple plans.
I love how easily these Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins come together, and they’re great to bake once and eat all week. I’ve also frozen them very successfully by just wrapping each one in plastic wrap once they’re completely cool and putting them in a Ziploc freezer bag. You can either defrost them to room temp or heat them up in the microwave before eating.
