Swimming in zucchini or green squash?
Try making some pumpkin zucchini bread or pumpkin zucchini muffins. I always find it a struggle to use up all of the zucchini after the initial garden excitement has turned into an overrun of tomatoes, squash, and beans.
Muffins are an easy way to sneak in extra nutrition. These pumpkin zucchini muffins are a healthy snack idea for toddlers and grown-ups alike! I struggle with nutritious snacks that are minimally processed and don’t break the bank. Turning the garden bounty into healthy and freezable snacks is my go-to strategy.

Avoid the Dreaded Muffin Stick
For years, I struggled with paper muffin cups. They would inevitably get smashed in the cupboard or half the muffins would peal off with the liner. I was excited to find these reusable (and dishwasher friendly!) silicone muffin cups and loaf pans. They keep their shape in the cupboard and easily fit in regular muffin tins. Muffins peel away from the sides super easily without needing baking spray or extra oil. The only trouble I have now is my daughter trying to sneak away with these colorful cups into her play kitchen.
