Healthy butternut squash brownies that are deliciously fudgy, easy to make and kid approved.  Paleo, gluten free and dairy free.




  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line an 8" x 8" baking dish with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Place the dark chocolate in a small sauce pan.  Melt on the stove top, over low heat.  Once fully melted, turn off heat.
  3. In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together squash puree, coconut sugar, eggs, avocado oil, and vanilla.
  4. Add in almond flour, cocoa powder and salt.  Whisk until smooth.
  5. Using a spatula, mix in the melted dark chocolate.
  6. Pour batter into the lined baking dish.
  7. Place the brownies in the oven and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and cool in baking dish.


For best results, measure ingredients by weight (when given).

*I steamed butternut squash in a steamer pot and then pureed it in a food processor.  You can also used canned squash puree or pumpkin puree.  Any squash variety should work.
