These healthy spiced muffins are delicious for breakfast since they aren’t too sweet.


1 ½ cup whole wheat flour⅓ cup white sugar2 tsp baking powder⅛ tsp salt1 tsp cinnamon½ tsp ground nutmeg¼ cup ground ginger¾ cup + 2 Tbsp butternut squash puree (about 1/2 a large roasted squash)¾ cup milk (I used vanilla lite soy)2 egg whites1 tsp vanilla extract1 Tbsp oil or butter, melted (I used Olivo Light)¼ cup raisins/dried cranberries/currants


  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray muffin tin with non-stick spray or use cupcake liners.
  2. Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl and whisk to combine well (vary spices according to your taste buds, but this combo was pretty spicy). Ensure that the squash puree is free of lumps, then mix in the rest of the wet ingredients.
  3. Add wet ingredients to dry, mixing only until combined, then gently fold in dried fruit. Use 1/3 cup measuring cup to fill muffin tins 2/3 full.
  4. Bake 21-24 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
