I love squash And when spring time I have my little garden. Last year I had way too much squash, so I had to come up with creative ways to cook them. So I came up with this recipe for my kids. It turned out great and my kids love them. You can also use crooked neck squash, butter cup or butternut in this recipe. I recommend you try this out.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F. Wash and peel your squash dice into pieces any size is fine. In a baking sheet toss squash with olive oil and salt. Bake for 40-45 minutes until soft and caramelized. Take out of oven and let cool for 10-15 minutes.
In large bowl mix all dry ingredients Flour, salt, cinnamon and baking powder. With mixer or wooden spoon mix wet ingredients together including sugar until well combined add cooled squash. Gradually ad flour mixture to wet ingredients until well combined I do all this with a wooden spoon so I don't break up squash but mixer will do. Last add the chopped pecans or what ever other nut you like. Fill your prepared muffin tins 2/3 of the way full.
Bake in preheated oven 375 degrees F. for about 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Enjoy them hot or cooled they are delicious either way. This is a great breakfast treat with coffee or tea or a great snack for kids. Some times I do them in my mini muffin tin and my kids love them.
