for the cornbread


  • Preheat the oven to 425ºF and line an 8x8 baking pan with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Add the butternut squash to a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Toss to combine. Roast for 25 minutes, flipping halfway through.
  • While the squash is cooking, beat together the flaxseed meal and water and set aside.
  • When the squash is done cooking, transfer it to a blender. Add the milk, flax egg, syrup and olive oil. Blend until smooth.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Pour the liquid ingredients into the bowl and stir together. Fold in the sage.
  • Transfer batter to the prepared baking pan. Top with sage leaves if desired and bake for 23 - 25 minutes until golden brown and a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack and cool completely before slicing into squares.
