They're so good, you may even want them in the middle of the day just because!

Who can resist a homemade biscuit hot from the oven? Our Butternut Squash Biscuits are just as irresistible as your traditional homemade biscuit. But, we added a few extra ingredients to make things interesting and nutritious. We’ve added lemon and spices, sweetened them lightly with coconut sugar, and incorporated butternut squash puree into the dough to give these biscuits a unique flavor. Slather them in cinnamon butter or light cream cheese and you’ll be scarfing down a whole batch before you know it!

These butternut squash biscuits can be enjoyed on a weekend morning for breakfast or brunch, with a holiday meal, or as part of a fall dinner menu. They’re so good, you may even want them in the middle of the day just because!
