Thank you for getting back to me. Acorn squash is a type of winter squash, and so are pumpkins. All the winter squash are related and taste similar. That means recipes that call for any of them are interchangeable. The other ingredients you'll need are available in health food stores. Here's a recipe for muffins:
Preheat he oven to 350*F.
1/2 cup potato starch
1/4 cup sorghum flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/8 tsp. sea salt
2 1/2 Tbsp. flax seed meal
3-4 Tbsp. water
2 small/medium ripe bananas
3/4 cup mashed acorn squash
1/4 cup vegetable oil (canola, grapeseed, etc.)
- In a large bowl, whisk together the flours, baking powder, spice, and sea salt. Set aside.
- In another bowl, stir together the flax seed meal and 3 Tbsp. of water. Let sit for 2-3 minutes. Whisk in the bananas, acorn squash, and oil.
- Stir together the wet and dry ingredients. Add a bit more water if needed.
- Spray or grease muffin tins, fill 3/4 full and bake 20 minutes.
