Serves: 12 muffins
  • 1 cup cooked mashed butternut squash
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1½ cups flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1½ teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ginger (optional)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¾ cup chopped walnuts
  1. Put the first 6 ingredients in a mixing bowl. Mix until well combined.
  2. Add everything else but the walnuts. Fold in flour with a spatula until just combined.
  3. Stir in walnuts.
  4. Line your cupcake pans with the paper liners.
  5. Fill them just a little over ¾ full. This recipe makes exactly 12 muffins.
  6. Bake at 375 degrees for 18 -20 minutes or until muffins spring back when lightly touched. You could also use a toothpick or cake tester to make sure they are done. If you do this and the tester comes back with a little of the batter on it, bake a few more minutes and test again.
