Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cinnamon Raisin Butternut Squash Bread

Melt-in-your-mouth cinnamon raisin butternut squash bread - gluten-free, sugar-free, dairy-free, delicious! | Bellini Bootcamp

Vegetables. IN your bread. I know. But trust me you guys…this soft, sweet, moist cinnamon raisin bread made with butternut squash is so sinfully delicious you won’t even be able to tell it’s healthy. And it’s really healthy...sugar-free, gluten-free, oil-free, paleo, low-fat, low-carb, and packed with vitamins A and C. Seriously, it took all my willpower not to polish off the whole loaf in one sitting. Amazing on its own or toasted and topped with almond butter or fruit spread. #omnom
