integrating nutrition, fitness, sprituality, conscious living, and a little sass
I love butternut squash for so many reasons! It is packed with vitamin A, fiber, vitamin C (one cup contains half your daily recommendation), folate, and it is delicious! I also love the fact that it is super low in calories, so it is a volume food! MORE FOOD, yayy! It is packed with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and nutrients, but not an absurd amount of calories, such a power food!
Luckily, it also works great in baked goods, just like pumpkin puree, bananas, and apple sauce! I found a recipe from http://www.bestfitbody.com to try out and I made a few adjustments. You can find the original recipe here.
I have made many different versions of this, but decided to give theirs a try today! I typically use a little more butternut squash which gives it a creamier moist flavor. These are nice and fluffy!
