Recipe: Butternut Squash Cupcakes (GAPS FRIENDLY)

If there is anything my husband is needing right now, it's comfort food. But baking in the GAPS world can get pretty expensive, so I was thrilled about this recipe! Another thing I love about this recipe is that you don't feel like your eating GAPS, it tastes totally illegal! And I was really excited to have something so moist to use in place of birthday cakes! I got this recipe off of SAHMville, one of my favorite sites! You want to see an amazing GAPS recovery story for autism, you gotta check out her site!!

So instead of using Pumpkin I used Butternut Squash, nice and sweet. And I did use the same Meringue Frosting she uses, it is delish and GAPS friendly also. What I did do different is cut the cupcakes in half and loaded on some frosting and placed a dollop on top with a sprinkle of cinnamon, cute!! The thing I noticed, after an hour or so; the cupcake completely soaked up the frosting inside and it just, MMMMM, made it explode with flavor in your mouth!! AMAZING!!! You will blow people away when you tell them your on a diet!! :)
