No Sugar-Added Sweet Butternut Squash Casserole
Sweet and savory, this delicious, no sugar-added Butternut Squash Casserole has everything you’re looking for in a perfect side. Without the high sugar count found in other recipes, we use our sugar-free Maple Syrup and Brown Monkfruit Sweetener to make the carbs and sugar a fraction of what they are in a traditional recipe.
Even though large quantities of butternut squash alone may be too many carbs for you, a heaping ½ cup serving of this easy butternut squash casserole is only 5.8 NET CARBS.
Something magical happens when you roast the butternut squash, then puree it with a mixture of butter and the flavor of maple. The carbs are definitely worth it for this delicious, satisfying dish.
