Today I am happily sharing you my recipe on wheat pumpkin muffins for toddlers and kids 🙂

You will always find finely chopped fresh pumpkins (courtesy : my hubby) in my refrigerator. I  used to prepare pumpkin daal curry twice a week either for idli/dosa or plain rice.

One day, I  planned to bake apple muffins as evening snack for Rithvik. When I opened the refrigerator to take apples the chopped pumpkins caught my attention. Suddenly thought of preparing muffins with pumpkin and dropped the plan of apple muffins.

I just tried my hand at making these muffins and kept my fingers crossed until Rithvik and hubby dear tasted these muffins. It turned out to be a mega hit 🙂

Pumpkin is a storehouse of many anti-oxidant vitamins such as vitamin-A, vitamin-C and  vitamin-E. All the parts of the pumpkin plant like fruit, leaves, flowers and seeds are edible.

If your toddler is fussy about eating pumpkins this is a alternate way to make them have it; unknowingly.  Try these whole wheat pumpkin muffins for your  sweet pie 🙂
