Spiced Butternut Squash Apple Bread

Laura Hinkeldey


This bread is so delicious! The warm spices combined with the apples and butternut squash are so pleasing to the palate! Like many of my recipes this is sugar free and low fat; but you wouldn't know it by the taste! It's so flavorful and just melts in your mouth! This is also kid tested AND approved! I think this is my 4 year old twin's favorite bread recipe yet. A cool thing with this recipe is that it could be used for/with any meal or as a dessert. I think Halo Vanilla bean ice cream on top would be divine! This is Weight Watchers friendly; on Freestyle 1 serving = 2 points.
You'll love it!
