  • 2 cups chopped butternut squash
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cups unsalted pistachio
  • 4 large eggs (beaten)
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp honey


  • In a sauce pan combine squash and water and boil for 5 minutes or until semi soft. Let it cool for a while to room temperature.
  • Preheat oven at 350 degree Fahrenheit. Prepare a 9 inch square cake pan/baking dish with a liner or grease it.
  • Grind the pistachio roughly and keep it aside in a mixing bowl.
  • Grind the squash to a smooth puree along with the left over water to add to the nutrition.
  • In a bowl combine the beaten eggs, vanilla extract, and honey and mix well.
  • Add the squash puree to the egg mixture and mix well until well blended.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the ground pistachio and mix well.
  • Make sure that the batter is well mixed but no need to overdo it. Just enough to mix the wet and dry ingredients.
  • Pour the batter into the cake pan and put the pan in the middle rack of the oven.
  • Bake for 30-35 minutes or until the knife comes out clean.
  • Take it out from the oven. Cut into square pieces.
  • Garnish with more ground pistachio or drizzle more honey/maple syrup.
  • Serve warm with your favorite beverage.
