"Similar to pumpkin muffins, these are a great way to use up butternut squash and are not too high in sugar. Even my picky husband enjoys these! Feel free to play around with the spice amounts to your liking."

These really are perfect butternut squash muffins! I increased the amount of squash to 2 cups, added a teaspoon of vanilla, and best of all, I diced up an apple and folded it into the mixture right before spooning into the cups. Sprinkled a light amount of cinnamon and sugar over the top before baking and they baked in exactly 15 minutes. I ended up with 24 perfect muffins! The apple adds such a nice flavor when you bite into it. With my three guys, these were gone by the end of the day and they want more. Thanks for sharing a really perfect recipe!
I had to play with the servings a bit to get the end result of muffins I was looking for. I ended on seven servings which gave me 12 medium sized muffins. BE AWARE THE SERVING AMOUNT ON THIS RECIPE IS NOT CORRECT. I actually used a whole roasted butternut squash which worked out perfectly. I did add a teaspoon of vanilla and increased the pumpkin pie spice. Before baking, I sprinkled each muffin mound with cinnamon-sugar. These turned out excellent--very moist, slightly chewy, good breakfast muffin.
These muffins are wonderful. I made one change to the recipe. I used 3 cups of butternut squash instead of the 1.5 cups listed. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. This made 28 muffins.
This recipe made 1, 9x5 loaf and 1 mini loaf. Bake mini loaf for 30 min. and big loaf for 50 min. I used apple butter in place of oil and it turned out great! I will make again!
I just made this recipe with a butternut squash from my garden and it makes the most delicious moist muffins! I used a whole squash and followed the directions as listed, and ended up with about 30 muffins. They are perfect for breakfast. My husband wanted to sweeten them up a bit so we add a cinnamon / sugar mix to the top of a few and they were great as well.
I used gluten free flour and buckwheat flour, reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup (to account for the chocolate chips that were added:) and halved the fat and replaced with applesauce.
We loved this! Who says you can't have your veggies and cake together? We added "craisins" and sunflower seeds because we like them.
These muffins really were great! I liked the balance of the spices. I was confused because in one spot the recipe said it would make ten muffins but in another spot it said 20. However, I halved it and got ten, so it seems the latter was correct. I used apple butter in place of the vegetable oil, as one reviewer suggested, added a tablespoon of coconut oil and decreased the sugar, using only brown. Also used a whole small squash, in spite of halving the other ingredients. A dense muffin but a delicious one and a great way to hide squash. Thanks!
