Yellow Squash Cornbread Muffins

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by CongoGirl

This is my modification of Yellow Squash Muffins (which I love). Since the muffins taste so much like cornbread, I decided to make a version that actually have corn meal. I also use whole wheat flour and flaxseed meal to make them even healthier.
