(So Soft!) Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins

August 9, 2016

We are getting to that point at the end of summer where I feel sentimental and also a little nervous. I must get everything in before August is out! But also, I adore Fall and cannot wait to do everything that comes along with it.

Just like these next couple weeks, these muffins bridge the gap between summer and fall – Summer in those perfectly ripened zucchinis, and Fall in all-pumpkin-everything, of course.

  • Is it TWO CUPS or TWO CANS?

    OMGosh-I just whipped a batch up-divided by thirds-the batter is fanfreakindelicious–I only have one 6 muffin pan, so I’ll be making a couple batches. I did what I HATE to see others do, made changes. Wait–I had no brown sugar-used coconut sugar andmaple syrup combined. I had Kobucha squash that was given m, already cooked and pureed-so I used that instead of pumpkin. I added walnuts–because NUTS! If they don’t turn out, I won’t blame anyone but myself–but so far, so good :)

    These are excellent. My kids loved them. I cut the white sugar in half and used whole wheat flour and they were still sweetened soft enough for us. Thank you for the recipe!

  • Marilyn V Halmes

    I looked everywhere trying to see how many muffins this recipe makes. I made twenty four regular sized muffins and 24 mini muffins! That’s a lot of muffins….good thing they are so delicious. I am going to take them to the church potluck tomorrow. I’m sure they’ll be a hit!
    Thanks for the great recipe.

    • Rachel Schultz

      Thanks Marilyn! Yes it’s 36 regular sized muffins : )

    • Beckie

      These sound delicious. I would like to make mini muffins, how long did you bake them for?

  • ally

    So i almost never try a new recipe from online unless I see lots of comments from people who have actually tried the recipe.. buuuuut… so glad I took a chance!

    THESE WERE AMAZING! just made them last night and they turned out PERFECTLY. for those who bake at high altitude, I didn’t change a thing about the recipe and they turned out so well. so so moist and full of flavor.

    • Rachel Schultz

      So glad!! Thanks Ally!

  • Ivonne

    Any recommendations on how to halve the recipe? They look delicious and I’m hoping my toddler likes them, but I don’t have enough flour, would I just halve all the ingredients? Thanks!

    • Rachel Schultz

      Yes just half everything!

    • Kathy Turbitt

      Taste of Home actually has a chart for dividing recipes in half or in thirds–very handy when it comes to tablespoons etc. I’m single and going to make 1/3 of the recipe-12 muffin;)

  • These look so yummy! Really great recipe for fall since its basically around the corner!

      Thanks Darianne!
