Ingredients

  • 1 Large Butternut Squash cut into halves lengthways, seeds removed
  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter melted
  • 1/4 Tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt

Topping:

  • 2 Tbsp Unsalted Butter melted
  • 2/3 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Oat Flour
  • 1 Cup Pecans roughly chopped
  • Pinch of Salt

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375F. 
  • Place the squash in a roasting tin, cut-sides up. Drizzle with olive oil and turn it cut side down into the roasting tin.
  • Roast for 45-50 minutes, or until fork tender. Once roasted, allow it to cool, then scoop all the flesh out into a bowl.
  • Add in eggs, butter, coconut sugar, vanilla, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Whisk with a hand mixer until well combined and fluffy.
  • Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and add in the butternut squash mixture, layering it evenly with a spatula. 
  • In a mixing bowl add all topping ingredients, except pecans. Toss with a fork until moist crumbs form, then stir in the pecans.
  • Layer the topping evenly over the butternut squash mixture, then bake for about 45 minutes, or until golden brown and set in the center.
  • Enjoy it warm or cold!
