Squash (or carrot) Muffins

I love to add veggies to muffins, it is a great way to get some more nutrients into all our food.


  • Prep Time : 20 min
  • Cook Time : 25 min
  • Ready Time : 45 min


10-12 Servings


  • 4 tablespoons melted, cooled coconut oil
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon grated nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon powdered ginger
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup mashed cooked winter squash (or carrot)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins or other chopped fruit or dried fruit


Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease a large 12-well muffin pan. Melt the coconut oil and set it aside to cool. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in a bowl. Place the buttermilk, squash, egg and melted coconut oil in a second bowl and beat to blend ingredients thoroughly. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and mix just until combined. Fold in the raisins if used. Fill muffin wells evenly with the batter. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the muffins cool for 15 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and serve warm or let cool to room temperature.

    • Yes! Place one tablespoon lemon juice or white vinegar in a measuring pitcher. Add enough coconut milk, opat milk or soy milk to reach one cup. Mix. Let stand 10 minutes. Use. Enjoy.
