  • 1/2 cup maple syrup 
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil (you can also sub butter or apple sauce) 
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Scale

Instructions

  1. preheat oven to 350 degrees and line muffin pan with parchment or silicone liners. 
  2. In a large mixing bowl combine pumpkin puree, grated zucchini, maple syrup, coconut oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla.  
  3. Fold in flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice, and salt until well combined.  
  4. Scoop batter evenly into muffin cups.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted into the center of the muffins. 

Notes:

*It is very important to squeeze your grated zucchini of all excess moisture!  I typically grate the zucchini directly on top of a dish towel or paper towel then simply wrap the towel around the grated zucchini and squeeze into the sink.  

*chocolate chips would be a delicious addition to these muffins! you can add to the batter or just sprinkle on top.  Or do both! Enjoy! 🙂

    Cannot wait to try! Can I sub butter instead of coconut oil?

      Yes absolutely! I like using coconut oil for a slightly healthier option but butter will most definitely work! You can also use apple sauce in place of oil in most baking recipes if you haven’t tried that yet either!
