  3. Mix all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, ground ginger, and cayenne pepper together in a bowl.
  4. Stir squash, yogurt, brown sugar, raisins, walnuts, eggs, and vanilla together in a large bowl. Add flour mixture to squash mixture; stir. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, 30 minutes.

The texture was wonderful but it could have used more flavor! I used butternut squash and 1 cup of cooked quinoa (I was trying to use up leftovers). Next time I would add a touch more sugar and twice the cinnamon. Also, I stirred the quinoa in with the wet ingredients since the recipe did not stipulate when to add it in.
