These moist and super-yummy Pumpkin Muffins are my kids’ favorite addition to their school lunches.
I usually try to make a large batch and freeze them. That way, as I’m preparing school lunches I can quickly grab them from the freezer. My only problem is that my kids try to eat the whole batch before I have a chance to freeze any!
Pumpkin (and other orange-colored fruits and vegetables) contain nutrients which:
- support the immune system.
- detoxify the body.
- fight cancers.
- protect the skin, eyes and organs.
Studies have shown that pumpkin inhibits prostate, breast and colon cancer cells.

You can add either chocolate chips or crushed nuts to these muffins.
