  • If using chocolate chips/chunks add them on the top.
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 18-20 minutes.

Notes

  • One can slightly cook the butternut squash and apple and puree them instead of directly adding.
  • Nuts and seeds can be added in the mix.
  • Chocolate chips too can be added in the mix.
  • One can replace the whole wheat with all purpose or plain flour if required.
  • Instead of maple syrup , 2-2.5 tbsp brown sugar can be used
  • Eggs can be replaced by flax eggs
  • I have used mini muffin tin as I wanted to keep the muffin's bite size. One can use regular muffin size tray.
  • For longer shelf life of 4-5 days it is best to refrigerate them.
