Paleo Squash Bread, gluten free


When I saw the Delicata squash in my box from Space Girl Organics  last week, I thought about bread.  I love incorporating squash and sweet potatoes into baked goods, but I don't like how time consuming it is to peel squash.  Recently I learned that Delicata squash skin is edible, and I was thrilled. No peeling and you get all of the benefits of the skin and fiber!
So I chopped the squash into chunks, baked it in the oven until tender, and then pureed it in the food processor.   It turned out great and saved so much time!
