I saw a recipe for pumpkin, zucchini cinnamon swirl muffins that looked and sounded good till I read the ingredient list. To much sugar and oil. So I decided to make my own version with what ai had on hand. I am happy with the result. I would like it to be a little less dense. But not sure on how to make that happen yet. Suggestion welcomed. :)
