These butternut squash and pineapple muffins are an unexpected way to welcome fall, and shake up your boring breakfast or brunch routine (they make a great dessert, or on-the-go snack, too). So skip your usual blueberry muffins and give these a try instead!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Total Time: 40 to 45 minutes
Servings: Makes about 12 to 18 muffins

Ingredients

  • brown sugar, for sprinkling
  • chopped pecans, for sprinkling

Here's how to make them:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a standard muffin tin with paper baking liners and set aside. 
  2. Sift together the spices with the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. 
  3. In the bowl of your stand mixer, whisk to combine the buttermilk, eggs, sugar, squash, pineapple, vanilla and melted butter.
  4. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in two additions. Beat until incorporated.  
  5. Scoop the batter evenly among the prepared muffin tins. Bake 30-35 minutes, rotating the pan once. About 5 minutes before they're finished baking, sprinkle with brown sugar and nuts, if desired.
