Spiced Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

With the first chill in the air I get a hankering for fall spices and foods. These Spiced Cinnamon Raisin Muffins are a great snack or treat!

The summer fruits are on the way out and the fall fare is coming in. Farmer’s Markets are brimming with the first apples and pears, squash and maybe even pumpkin.

Spiced Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

In my house we love squash and many times I cook too much. Here is a good way to use up some extra butternut or buttercup squash – or even pumpkin – in a nutritious, tasty snack.

My son loved these for his after school snack laced with butter or ghee, the fragrance of the spices lingering in the house for hours after baking.
