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.


Ingredients You'll Need

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice mix *** (see recipe below)
3/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 cup squash purée (or pumpkin puree)*** (not pie filling- see recipe)
1/2 cup oil (sunflower, safflower, etc.)
1/3 cup plain non-dairy milk
1/4 cup dark cooking molasses (I use blackstrap molasses)
1 tsp vanilla extract

PUMPKIN SPICE MIX
