Pumpkin. It gets such a short window to showcase it greatness. I will use that window,however, to put it in absolutely anything I can! Here we go pumpkin muffins! My favourite favourite thing about baking with pumpkin is the fact that it replaces the need for oil or butter in recipes! I also hid some shredded zucchini in this recipe and the kids haven't said boo. I win

Why is pumpkin so good for you? It packs an iron and vitamin E punch! Having sufficient amounts of both of these in your diet wards off illness by keeping your immune system in check. Pumpkin is also high in fiber and Vitamin K which keeps your eyes, bones and teeth healthy. Can I get a round of applause for our wholesome orange fruit!!
