Healthy Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins

Recipe by  

"Muffins are a favorite at my house. They're fast and easy to make too! The basis for this recipe came from the 'Eat Clean Diet'. Changes were made because of things I had on hand at the time. The zucchini was a great way to add veggies and fiber. Make a batch or 2 and freeze them for mornings you're in a hurry or just need a snack! Sometimes I'll warm one up in the microwave and drizzle a little agave nectar over it! Yum!"

Hooray! My kids loved these! I made a few changes: swapped 1 cup pecans for raisins, 3/4 C brown sugar for the agave nectar, cinnamon to taste, 1/4 C applesauce for oil and 1 cap of vanilla. Loved them.

These muffins smelled wonderful but tasted bland. I don't know whether the recipe omitted salt by accident or on purpose, but I think it could benefit by the addition of at least 1/2 teaspoon of salt. Note also that the original recipe actually makes 2 dozen muffins, not 1.

I substituted unsweetened apple sauce for the oil, and used sugar because I had no agave. Also added 1/2 tsp salt, a small dash of vanilla, and a dash of cinnamon. Came out great.

These muffins turned out great! I added 1/2 tsp of salt and walnuts to the recipe. The recipe made 18 medium muffins for me and I baked them for 23 minutes at 375. They were nice and moist and delicious!

Just took them out of the oven. Delicious. I only used a little over 1 cup sugar and used 1 cup applesauce instead of oil. Also put in some chopped pecans and raisins.

Made. These today and added salt and cinnamon but still rather bland I sprayed the inside of the muffin liners with Pam so they did not stick but now they are just falling off of them I do not recommend they are very plain I even put chocolate chips in the second batch after I realized how lame are

I took the adevice of other reviewers and added 1/4 teaspoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of vanilla, and plenty of cinnamon, ginger, clove, allspice, and touch of nutmeg. I'm diabetic and prepping meals for postpartum. I made these even more lactation friendly by adding 1/2 cup of whole flax seeds. I substituted truvia brown sugar (6 tablespons) baking mix for the agave. I swapped 1/4 cup of steel cut oats for 1/4 cup of old fashioned oats. I reduced raisins to half cup. In half of the batch I added semi sweet mini chocolate chips (also good for lactation) I swapped out the oil with 1/2 of unsweetened apple sauce. I made 2 trays of mini muffins and a dozen standard size muffins with this recipe. Mini muffins turned out well. I only baked them for 18 minutes. This is not very sweet, but very flavourful!

I was looking for a healthy recipe that my daughter could take to school. I'm not sure 4 eggs falls in to "healthy" but I guess that it is better than regular muffins. The 2 tablespoons baking powder give them a bitter flavor but not so much that they were inedible. I used coconut oil instead of canola. I think I will be looking for a new recipe for next time.
