     Who knew Squash could be so darn delicious!!!!  ... ESPECIALLY in Pancakes!!!  Well I do, and it's AWESOME!!!  And get a load of these stats~235 calories, 15g net carbs, and 28.6g protein.  So thankful it's Fall and Squash is in full Season  ;)

Ingredients~
1/4 cup cooked Butternut Squash ( I sometimes cheat and buy it already cubed in a bag in the produce department~Walmart is the only store around here I can find it fresh in the produce department. Can you say convenient!!!???)
1/4 cup Egg Whites
2 Tablespoons Cottage Cheese
1 teaspoon Baking Powder, found at Vitacost.com

     Grind til smooth in Magic Bullet the Squash, Egg Whites, Cottage Cheese, Baking Powder, Cinnamon and Vanilla. Then stir in Oat Bran, Flax, and Protein Powder.  Cook in Pam coated skillet til golden brown on each side, dropping by 1/4 cup batter per pancake.  Spread each pancake with a teaspoon of the Cheesecake Whipped Frosting, except the top pancake.  Stack the frosted pancakes on a plate and top with the Caramel Syrup, remaining Cheesecake Whipped Frosting, and finish by sprinkling with Apple Bits.  Enjoy  ;)
