Spiced Butternut Squash Muffins

As always with my muffins recipes, these spiced butternut squash muffins come with no sugar coma! And they’re whole wheat to boot! (Be sure to use whole wheat PASTRY flour vs. regular whole wheat flour — huge difference!)



(makes 12 muffins)


  • 1.5 C whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 C cane sugar
  • 1/3 C finely ground flaxseed
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda


  • 1 C pureed butternut squash (canned or fresh)
  • 1/2 C raisins (or chocolate chips, or other dried or fresh chopped fruit)
  • 1/2 C whole milk
  • 2 small very ripe bananas, mashed
  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 350.

1) In two separate bowls, mix dry, then wet, and then combine, adding wet to dry and stirring gently until the mixture is uniform-ish.

2) Spoon the mixture into a non-stick (or sprayed with PAM) muffin tray. Don’t forget to sprinkle some raw oats on top to make ‘em look pretty!

3) Pop them in the oven for about 25 minutes. Fork check to make sure they are done.

Enjoy! :)

    How can you say these have no sugar in them? 1/2 cane sugar. sugar is sugar.

      I didn’t say they have no sugar – I said “no sugar coma” — e.g. way less sugar than normal muffin recipes. Sorry if that was confusing!

    I just stumbled upon your site. What wonderful recipes!! I can’t wait to try them out. I have been saving them into my recipe planner at so that I can get them scheduled on our family food calendar and into the shopping list. The website will upload all the ingredients automatically for me up to the word “wet” that makes it confused. It is worth the extra work of putting the rest of it in manually. We have a VERY large garden with all kinds of squash, tomatoes, and other veggies. Your website will allow me to use those raw ingredients into more nutritious recipes for my family. I’ve been going through a lot of white flour and white sugar. I’m SOOO ready to use our fresh ingredients in your healthier recipes.
