Well, being Alex’s birthday I decided to bake him some muffins. Seeing that we picked a sweet mama squash from our garden this morning, I figured I would try making squash chocolate chip muffins.
Here is the recipe that I semi made up upon not finding an exact recipe online.
Sweet Mama Squash Chocolate Chip Muffins
3 C flour (I used whole wheat white flour)
1 3/4 C cane sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp pumpkin spice
1 C oil
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 C shredded sweet mama squash
half a bag of chocolate chips (can’t have too much chocolate, right?!)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Then mix the eggs, oil and vanilla together in a large mixing bowl. To the egg mixture add the squash. Then dump in the flour mixture and chocolate chips and stir. Be careful as you don’t want to over stir!!! Bake for 20 minutes.
They are now out of the oven but we haven’t sampled them yet. I will let you know how they turned out after we enjoy some later this evening!
And the verdict is…Alex ate three muffins and I ate two = very delicious!!!!!
