Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

  3. Add almond milk to the cooked butternut squash, and then puree with an immersion blender. 
  4. Add all ingredients into a medium mixing bowl.
  5. Spray a 9x9 glass baking pan with non-stick spray.
  6. Pour in the brownie batter and cook for 25 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  7. Enjoy with a glass of almond milk! (optional)
