Squash Corn Muffins

What does 75 degrees remind you of?

Time to bake, cook, and devour all the squash, pumpkin, and apples you can handle!!!!

The other day I found a pattison squash….I believe it is a pattison squash, from all the research I did.  They are pretty little things, and really fun to cook with.

The first recipe we made with the squash was a dish my sweet hubby made.

He  sauteed squash, onions, garlic, tomatoes, mushrooms, and Chinese five spice, topped on brown rice. It was so healthy, AND delicious!

For the second squash, I was trying to decide what to bake with it.  The recipe I decided to make was a corn muffin.  I still have some squash left, I am trying to decide what else to make with the delicious treat….what do you suggest?

I had to make some changes to the muffins, since I didn’t have everything in the house.  They turned out so cute, and plump!

Squash Corn Muffin Recipe –

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1/2 cup Bob’s Red Mill corn grits (polenta)

1 Tbsp parsley flakes

1 Tbsp dried chives

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp dried Greek oregano

1/4 tsp of chili powder

1/2 tsp salt

2 eggs beaten

1 cup squash, grated

1/4 cup apple, diced finely

1/2 cup plain Chobani Greek yogurt

1/3 cup California Olive Ranch olive oil

1/8 – 1/4 cup water

1/2 fresh corn, or frozen

Directions –

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit

In medium bowl – mix together flour, corn grits, parsley, chives, baking powder, baking soda, Greek oregano, and salt.

In small bowl – beat egg.

In large bowl – mix together egg, squash, apple, Greek yogurt, olive oil, and water. Depending on batter, you may need only 1/8 of a cup of water, you want batter thick and  loose, but not runny  Mix in dry ingredients, then mix in corn, do not over mix batter.

Bake for 12-16 minutes, depending on oven.

Note – These muffins are really lovely, but need a bit more flavor.  When I topped them with chili pepper infused honey, they were perfect!  You could add about 1/2 cup honey in batter.   They would also be lovely complimented with any delicious soup!

Actually this post was funny, I ended up using three products that were given to me to share with you.  I love me some delicious Chobani.  Then I received a gorgeous bottle of California Olive Ranch olive oil.  AND Cloister Honey is beautiful local honey company I adore here in Charlotte.  So much fun to incorporate all of them in this fun recipe!

Fall makes me happy!  At the cafe where I work, I made a pumpkin pie with pecan crumble.  I was so excited for fall!!!! It really is the best time of the year!

What is your favorite squash recipe?

Until next time, Come on in, Have a seat,

Hugs, Terra
