Recipe Ingredients for Squash Muffins

14 ounces butternut squash
1 cup Sugar Light Brown
4 large eggs
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup wheat flour
1/2 cup flax seed
3 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup walnuts
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup applesauce

Recipe Directions for Squash Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line your muffin tins with paper cups.

  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.

  3. Fill the paper cups with the muffin 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 muffins - 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 muffins to cool on a wire rack.
