Author's Notes

To roast butternut squash, cut butternut squash in half lengthwise, remove seeds, and place on a baking sheet face down. Bake for 45 minutes at 450 degrees F or until flesh is cooked through. Allow to cool, remove skin, and add cooked flesh to food processor, process for 5-10 seconds.
I was able to get 34 mini muffins and baked in two batches.
