  • Prepare oven and muffin pan: Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Spray a 6 or 12 muffing baking pan with cooking spray, or line it with muffin liners.
  • Combine dry ingredients: In a large bowl combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
  • Combine wet ingredients: In another bowl whisk the pumpkin, zucchini with the egg, melted butter, milk and vanilla extract.
  • Make batter: Add the pumpkin zucchini mixture to the flour mixture and using a spatula mix everything until the flour is moistened, don't over mix, and keep in mind the batter will be a bit lumpy.
  • Spoon into muffin tin: Spoon the muffin batter (I used an ice cream scoop) into the prepared muffin pan. You will completely fill the muffin cups, this way you will get nice muffins with perfect domes. The batter should be enough for 12 small muffins or 6 jumbo muffins. Top each muffin with a few pepitas, then sprinkle with some turbinado sugar or brown sugar.
  • Bake: Turn down the oven to 400 F degrees and place the muffins in the oven. Bake them for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden brown.



  1. Store these muffins in either a plastic bag, plastic wrap, or an airtight container. They will last at room temperature for 3 days or in your fridge for 1 week. These are extra delicious if you reheat them for about 30 seconds in the microwave before digging in!
  2. Wrap these muffins individually with either plastic wrap or foil, or you can place them all in a large freezer bag or airtight container. Reheat by putting them in the microwave for 1 minute, or until heated through.
