Directions

Step 1 

Preheat oven to 350˚F (175˚C). Grease muffin tin or line with baking cups.

Step 2 

Grate the zucchini. Drain excess water from zucchini by squeezing handfuls and allowing the liquid to drain off or place in a tea towel and wring it out. Place drained zucchini in a medium bowl.

Step 3 

Add pumpkin puree, eggs, brown sugar, oil, milk, and vanilla to the zucchini and whisk to combine.

Step 4 

In another large bowl, add flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Step 5 

Add wet ingredients into the dry and stir just until combined.

Step 6 

Evenly fill 12 muffin cups with batter. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the muffin comes out clean. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the muffin tin.
