Butternut Squash Surprise Pie (Sweet Potato Swap)

Make a new healthier version of Sweet Potato Pie using Butternut Squash instead.

8 cups peeled and cubed butternut squash
1 cup egg whites or fat-free liquid egg substitute
2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
2 tbsp. Truvia spoonable no-calorie sweetener
1 tbsp. maple extract
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups miniature marshmallows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" X 13" baking pan with nonstick spray.

Place squash in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/4 cup water, and cover. Microwave for 10 minutes, or until just tender enough to mash. Drain well.

Roughly mash squash. Add all remaining ingredients except marshmallows. Mix thoroughly.

Transfer mixture to the baking pan. Bake until firm, 45 - 50 minutes.

Top with marshmallows, and bake until melted and lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
