HAPPY PI DAY

I'm actually attempting squash cupcakes today (no joke - carrots are still a no, so I'm subbing in acorn squash), so wish me luck. If you're curious about my culinary adventures, here is the original recipes. Below the cut is what I'm actually making.


Ingredients
1/3 cup canola oil
1 cup agave nectar
1.5 tbspn flaxseeds + 4.5 tpsn water
2 cup finely grated acorn squash
1/2 cup currants or chopped dates
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 cups quinoa and millet/other flour
2tsp arrowroot flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp -1/2 ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt

I don't love millet flour because it absorbs water poorly, but as the secondary flour in the mix, it might do okay, and the gluten-free thing really needs a flour mix. I'm low on options without rice! That's on the soon-to-be-reintroduced list.

Roommates will be getting cream cheese frosting to top it all off, probably store bought. (I know, I know, but SPOONS. I DON'T HAVE THEM.)

I have no idea how the chemistry is going to fall out, but it should be exciting!
