These Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins are the perfect combo of summer and fall. With a crumb topping and chocolate chips they are a great on the go breakfast!
So I am one of those “Pumpkin Spice all the things” girls. And the minute that September rolls around, I am ready for all things pumpkin. Now, I do realize that not everyone is quite ready for that yet. So I thought I would combine the two and make these Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins.
In the summer, I adore zucchini bread. If you happen to have some growing in your garden you know that you have more than enough to make bread at least a few dozen times.
In the fall, I adore pumpkin bread. It’s pumpkiny and gingery and all kinds of goodness.
So I thought that to help us ease from summer to fall, I would combine the two to make a lovely “there are still two weeks of summer and my garden is full of zucchini but I must have all the pumpkin” treat.
In addition to combining both summer and fall, these Pumpkin Zucchini Muffins are great because they are a great grab and go breakfast.
These muffins have been a big hit in our home. Ryan and I love the pumpkin part and how perfectly moist they are. The boys loves the chocolate chips.
And all of us adore the crumb topping.
A little too much.
As in all four of us have been sneaking it. As in I’m lucky I got a picture of the muffins with the topping before it was all gone.
So basically, everything about these muffins is good and you should totally make them today. Okay? OK. :)
