Pumpkin Spice Zucchini Muffins

At this point we all seem to be swimming in zucchini! I tend to get stuck in a bit of a rut with my zucchini. Grill it, roast it, pasta, bake it, bread. So I’ve been putting the bulk of it on my farm stand and it’s been selling out every other day. But it started to make me feel wasteful. I should be striving to find new uses for it! So I set out on a mission this week to come up with something new. I combed the kitchen and came across some left over pumpkin in the freezer from last year! Might as well jump on the pumpkin spice kick a little early!

2 cups grated fresh zucchini

2/3 cup melted butter
