Recipe Ingredients for Winter Squash Muffins

1/2 lb winter squash
1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp ginger
1/2 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup milk
1 egg
1 tbsp butter

Recipe Directions for Winter Squash Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Grease a 12 cup muffin tin.

  3. In a separate medium-sized pot, boil the butternut squash on medium-high for approximately 20 - 25 minutes. Once the squash is tender, remove from the heat and drain.

  4. Puree the squash in a food processor (or mash until creamy in consistency).

  5. In a large separate bowl, mix together all of the dry ingredients. This includes the whole wheat flour, the baking powder, the salt, the cinnamon and the Brown Sugar Splenda.

  6. In a separate medium-sized bowl, whisk the egg, milk and melted butter.

  7. Add the creamed squash to the mixed egg, milk and butter. Mix well.

  8. Fold the squash mixture into the dry ingredient bowl. Keep folding until the flour mixture is moist.

  9. Spoon the prepared batter into the muffin tins, filling each cup about halfway.

  10. Place the muffins into the preheated oven and bake for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick put in the center of a muffin comes out clean.

  11. Remove muffins from the muffin tin and cool on a wire rack.
