My kids LOVE this.... and it's whole wheat, squash, honey, almonds.... all good things for you.
Chase (my 2 yr old) keeps calling it cake.
Hey if they want to think this is a treat that's awesome!
It is very similar to pumpkin bread but not quite as sweet. The squash puree adds allot of moisture, and the honey roasted almonds add the perfect amount of crunch.
This recipe is getting a gold star and will be many more times to come!
