About this recipe:An ingenious use of butternut squash, these muffins are moreish and healthy. You can use olive oil or a mild oil such as rapeseed. Either work a treat. Omit the nuts if you prefer a plain muffin. These freeze well... Why not wrap them individually and then throw them into packed lunches straight from the freezer?

Preheat oven to 200 C / Gas 6. Line a muffin tin with paper muffin cases.
Beat egg in medium-sized bowl, then add milk, oil, butternut squash and vanilla. Stir thoroughly until mixture is smooth.
In a separate large bowl, mix together all remaining dry ingredients. Add all of the wet mixture to the dry ingredients. Fold together gently until the flour mixture is just moistened, ensuring you do not over-mix (over-mixing will cause the muffins to not rise properly). The batter will be lumpy, not smooth.
Spoon batter into prepared muffin cases, filling nearly to the top.
Bake for 20 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean at the centre of a muffin.
