Why I Love This Recipe

FEATURING: Squash (or pumpkin)

Deliciously moist muffin that embraces the flavours of autumn. This recipe has a few steps but it is sooooo worth it. Squash is just incredible in this recipe. Pumpkin is just as great too.

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice mix *** (see recipe below)
