This is adaption that I came up with from Lower Fat Pumpkin Bars that is no fat and sugar free for dietary reasons. It is chock full of flavor, moist and very healthy!! You can also add to it to suit you. It is lower also in calories!! My six year old even loves it and have requested it already!! I have added to the baseline of this recipe and she did not even know she was eating Squash nor how healthy it was-she thought it was the real deal!! In my version, vanilla extract was added and pumpkin pie spice. For a real kick, I added two handfuls of coconut, 1/2 cup of macadamia nuts, coconut extract and Da'Vinci Sugar Free Caramel Syrup with Fat Free Cream Cheese frosting with Sugar Free Caramel Syrup!! You can also use any Squash or Pumpkin..be creative..but if you add more ingredients, remember it adds more calories!! Prep time not included for pureed squash although you can use baby food squash-its the something but fresher is better! Enjoy-we do..very delish and Yummy too! Update: If you are going to use just Squash, because of higher water content, OMIT the APPLESAUCE and INCREASE FLOUR TO 3 Cups.. I found this out the hard way. Also, don't use metal pan if you can help it..don't worry squash does turn color the next day. Must be refrigerated as well after you are done with it..
