I love quick breads and I find they are especially great around the holidays as gifts or to serve with a little butter as a side dish since they are not overly sweet and go great with Turkey. Here's a great recipe for a moist, delicious bread that incorporates some butternut squash. I LOVE butternut squash and have been looking for a way to eat it aside from the soup and pasta. This is a great use of all that delicious butternut squash you may have.This is also a great way to get your kids to eat their veggies especially if you use the healthier alternatives.

Step-by-Step

  1. *To cook the Butternut Squash, cut into four sections and remove all the seeds. Place skin side up in a baking pan and add about 1/2-1 inch of water. Bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until the fork pierces easily. Pour out excess water, allow to cool and remove the skin. Approximately 1/2 the squash equals 1 and 1/4 cups need for the recipe.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, sift together the first 3 ingredients.
  3. In the food processor, process the cooked squash until smooth. Then add the next five ingredients and process until combined.
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
  5. Add the nuts if desired.
  6. Pour into a greased 9X5 inch loaf pan and bake for approximately 1 hour or until a toothpick or knife inserted comes out clean. Enjoy!
