Recipe Ingredients for Butternut Chocolate Chip Muffins

2 cup, cubes Squash, Winter, Butternut
350 grams Domino Light Brown Sugar
4 medium Egg, Whole
2.5 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 cup Chopped Pecans
1 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
5.9 oz Extra Virgin Olive Oil
6 oz Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

Recipe Directions for Butternut Chocolate Chip Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Line your muffin tins with paper cases.

  2. Whiz the squash in a food processor until finely chopped. Add the sugar, and crack in the eggs. Add a pinch of salt, the flour, baking powder, walnuts, cinnamon and olive oil and whiz together until well beaten. You may need to pause the machine at some point to scrape the mix down the sides with a rubber spatula. Try not to overdo it with the mixing ? you want to just combine everything and no more. Add chocolate chips.

  3. Fill the paper cases with the cake mixture. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Check to see whether they are cooked properly by sticking a wooden skewer or a knife right into one of the cakes ? if it comes out clean, they?re done. If it?s a bit sticky, pop them back into the oven for a little longer. Remove from the oven and leave the cakes to cool on a wire rack.
