Butternut Muffin Directions
- Preheat oven to 375°F.
- In a large sauce pan, sauté the butternut squash in the margarine until soft, not mushy. Set sautéed squash to the side.
- In a large bowl, stir together the baking powder, salt, ground cinnamon, brown sugar, instant oats, and flour. Make a well in the center.
- In a separate bowl, beat eggs. Stir in canola oil, vanilla extract, yogurt, water, and milk. Pour all at once into the well in the dry ingredients. Mix quickly with a fork until the batter is moist, but do not beat. The batter will be lumpy.
- Save ½ cup (for 50 servings) or 1 cup (for 100 servings) of butternut squash to top the muffins. Fold the remaining butternut squash into muffin batter with a spatula. Pour the batter into paper–lined muffin pans. Bake for 20 minutes. (If using a convection oven, fan speed should be set on low.)
- Remove muffins from the oven. Evenly distribute remaining butternut squash on top of each muffin.
- Place back in the oven for 2 minutes.
- For best results, allow muffins to cool. Cover or wrap in plastic. Serve the next day.
- Serving size is 1 muffin.
