I found a pumpkin muffin recipe from "The Realistic Nutritionist" but didn't have any pumpkin on hand. Instead I had some butternut squash that needed to get used up. I deleted a few things from the recipe and added a few things (like the dates) and was pleasantly surprised with how they turned out. My boyfriend loves them too!
