½ cup all-purpose flour

¾ cup sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

¼ tsp. nutmeg

¼ tsp. cinnamon

½ cup chopped pecans

—————————————————————————-

1 cup honeynut squash puree**

2 Tbsp. oil

1 egg

Combine dry ingredients and mix well. Set aside while you combine remaining ingredients in a separate bowl. Once blended well, add all together and stir evenly.

I baked in a mini muffin pan at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

An optional frosting or glaze can be added once they are cool to top off the muffins if desired.

** you can also use pumpkin pie or another type of winter squash if you wish

The method I used to process the squash into puree is as follows:

Bake or steam until soft

I peeled and cubed and then added the honeynut squash to a pan with water to steam cook on top of the stove top. Once cooled, drain and using an immersion blender or food processor puree.
