Ingredients
  • 1 ½ cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup pureed cooked, butternut squash
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • ¼ cup plain low fat or fat free yogurt
  • 3 TB molasses
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, pumpkin pie spice, ginger, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Combine brown sugar, squash puree, canola oil, yogurt, molasses, and egg in a separate bowl. Thoroughly mix together by hand or using an electric beater on medium for 1-2 minutes. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Pour in liquid mixture and GENTLY fold to just combine. Batter will be lumpy!
