Kids can get in on the pumpkin craze with these yummy pumpkin zucchini muffins. As a mom, you can feel good about giving them a muffin for breakfast when it’s loaded with hidden veggies. Use canned pumpkin puree to make them easy and quick to make. These make a great baby led weaning recipe or just for sneaking some veggies into your picky toddler.

I love to make these using a mini muffin pan. My toddler can choose whether to eat one or three without a lot of waste! They’re also great for sharing at playgroup or other events. For the zucchini, you can use a hand grater, or save yourself some time and use a food processor to quickly chop it up for you. As busy moms, time is always a precious commodity! Older toddlers or preschoolers can even help mix up the batter themselves.
