Now you can have vegetables for breakfast and actually like it.

Squash is one of my favorite vegetables to make because it is sweet and filling (like a sweet potato) but low in carbs and sugar! If you have any leftover cooked squash from dinner or buy frozen bags of pre cubed & peeled squash, this pancake recipe will put it to good use!

It took me a few tries to get it right because it is so moist but this recipe is now one of my favorites-way sweeter and moist than any pumpkin pancake recipe I have tried as well. Enjoy!
