Instructions

  3. Bake on middle rack for 50-60 minutes or until golden brown on top.
  4. *Roasted squash is best but you can microwave it. Just be sure to squeeze out extra liquid.

Notes

(This is how to eat your veggies!) Shockingly amazing. The perfect sweet and healthy finish to a heavier meal. Serve plain as a simple but delightful afternoon or evening snack with a steaming cup of Gingerbread Coffee. Bump it up for company with ice cream or Greek yogurt, a drizzle of maple syrup and toasted walnuts.

Wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, lower calorie and healthy source of fruit, vegetable and protein (for dessert!).
