Kid-friendly veggies: Pumpkin or Squash Muffins

This is a continuation of a facebook discussion on the Premier Physique page. Ideas for getting kids to eat more veggies!

Here's a recipe I just tried from a friend and my kids loved them: 2 cups oats, 1 cup liquid coconut oil, grapeseed or other healthy oil, 2 cups of organic non-homogenized milk, 1 cup Rapadura whole unrefined cane sugar, a can of pumpkin (or use squash!), teaspoon vanilla and 2 organic eggs. Dry mix: 2 cups flour (I use a gluten-free coconut blend, another good option would be organic white whole wheat flour), 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1 teaspoon sea salt, and a few teaspoons flax. Mix dry into wet stuff. Then add about a tablespoon of cinnamon and 2 tablespoons of pumpkin pie seasoning. Then mix in: dried cranberries, organic chocolate chips and/or nuts. Bake at 350 for about a half hour, maybe less.

My kids loved them and want to make them again tonight! Last time was pumpkin so tonight it's squash muffins.
