The squash used in these brownies creates a chewy, fudgy center with a crisp top and adds a touch of natural sweetness. The additional sweetener helps to enhance and bring out more of the natural squash’s sweet taste, cutting the need for sugar/sweeteners substantially. The result is a moist, chewy brownie you can feel good about snacking on!
(Acorn) Squash: This is one of my favorite winter squashes, the taste is deliciously sweet and it’s a smart, slow carb that makes a perfect snack when roasted! It’s packed with: vitamin A, niacin, folate, thiamine and vitamin B-6, but it is an especially good source of vitamin C. One serving contains 20% of your daily vitamin C intake! The squash in these brownies makes an amazing consistency.
*To cook acorn squash (or any other squash you’d like to use for this recipe such as Kabocha or Butternut): Cut squash in half and roast face down on parchment paper-lined baking sheet in a 400f degree oven for approx. 30 minutes until cooked. Discard seeds and scoop the inside out to use for this recipe. Use the rest as a delicious side dish with some olive oil and sea salt (like mashed potatoes)!
