Butternut squash muffins

Healthy butternut squash muffins, deliciously chewy and packed with all the flavors of fall. And since these muffins are naturally banana sweet, they're perfect for a healthy breakfast or snack!

Since they contain nut butter and coconut flour, they are high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. 

For those who wish to cook them for children's lunches, simply substitute the nut butter with chickpeas cooked and drained in the same proportion. This will allow you to share these sweet treats with your children while remaining an excellent source of protein.
