Description

I took my love for pumpkin and combined it with my love for healthy cooking to make over a Pumpkin Zucchini Muffin Recipe. First, I changed milk to coconut milk and butter to coconut oil to make it dairy free. Second, I removed brown sugar and white sugar & used 100% pure maple syrup to make it sugar-free. Third, I added cloves, ginger, and more cinnamon to boost flavor without adding processed sweeteners. Lastly, I changed flour to 100% whole wheat white flour. These muffins are real food- yum!
