Roasted Kabocha Squash Brownies

September 26, 2013

Thank you all for your kind words and honest thoughts on yesterday’s post. Despite the physical and mental battles I am dealing with, I have never felt luckier or more grateful. I love you all.

My family and friends are generally respectful of the food choices I make. To be honest, the only comments I get on my diet are when I indulge in “unhealthy” treats. Yes I eat french fries and burgers and Betty Crocker brownies (working on eating these things guilt-free). I don’t know why people are so shocked by this. But it is true that most of the time I try to stick to whole, real foods exempt of any artificial gunk. 

Kabocha Squash Brownies

I try not to push the choices I make onto other people. I get why someone orders chicken fingers just as much as why someone orders a salad. On the other hand, healthifying food is one of my favourite things to do in the kitchen. Making something that is equally as nutritious as it is tasty is incredibly satisfying, but that doesn’t always happen. I’m going to eat the real brownie if it tastes better than the healthy version. That’s why I work so hard to make my recipes a bit of both. 

Kabocha Squash Brownies

A combo of healthy + delicious was my mentality behind this brownie recipe. I really had high hopes for these, but honestly they were a let-down. I had half of one and stopped because they just weren’t Betty Crocker standard. I made a promise to you that I would only post recipes I love, so why in the heck am I posting these? By some freak turn of events my family really liked these! Like I said, they are usually pretty respectful of my food choices but getting them to eat the things I make isn’t always easy. For some reason healthy seems to be synonymous with tastes like poo. You can imagine my shock and excitement when they liked these brownies. I’ll let you be the ultimate judge.

    Well you know my thoughts on people commenting on the food choices I make! If the sacrificing of taste is “worth it” (ie the ingredients are thatttt much better for me) then I’m all for it. But usually you don’t even need to sacrifice taste, as you know. We can work on eating Betty Crocker brownies guilt free together 🙂

    Omg, I get (totally unwanted) comments about my food choices all the time! It’s been really hard for me over the last 6 months or so since I gave up calorie counting and finally started to put into practice the “everything in moderation” thing WITHOUT guilt, but some people just don’t understand. I may eat a lot of salads, but that doesn’t mean that’s the ONLY thing I eat! Sometimes I just want to eat a freakin’ cookie! Maybe that cookie is a “healthy” cookie or maybe it’s a 2957396 calorie cookie filled with butter and sugar and every other crack-like delicious ingredient! I love making/eating healthier treats, but I will NOT eat cardboard.

    yes, people always say: “oh, you’re too strict” or “why don’t you just eat [insert junk food here]” or “really? you only eat ONE dessert a year? WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO YOURSELF?!” which is ironic because then they go on about how much weight they’ve been gaining/how much weight they have to lose/how their pants are too tight etc etc…. sheesh.

    Ooh brownies!!! I haven’t had one in forever, but I sure love them, particularly brownie a la mode. Your recipes always look great but I’m a bit scared to make them because I’m not that much of a cook or baker for the matter. It’s going to take lots of practice for me to get even half as good as you, but I’m pretty sure the delicious treats are worth it.

    So now I really need to pick up more kabocha this week 😉 And I hate it when people make comments on what others eat. For me, when I was in recovery and starting to attempt my fear foods, I would get comments from people asking things like “why are you eating that (brownie, piece of cake, onion rings, what-have-you)? I thought you didn’t eat that stuff!” An awesome thing to say to someone who was feeling incredibly challenged by that food, clearly. What we choose to eat is our decision, people shouldn’t feel the need to comment on it!

    I believe in “everything in moderation”. But that’s just me. I respect everyone’s food choices and I too wish people wouldn’t judge me (or others) for their food choices.
    I’m always open to trying new healthy dishes. One will never know how tasty it is unless they try. I happen to think these brownies look delicious! I’ve never thought to make them with dates and kabocha but I thank you for sharing with us to give me the opportunity to expand my horizons. 🙂

    I’m trying to get back on track and I’ll catch up your earlier posts later today. I will have to read your yesterday post after this – I’m sorry I haven’t read it sooner, but I hope all is okay now? Sending you hugs & blissful thoughts. xx

    I’m glad you posted the recipe for these delicious brownies, I guess everyone has different tastes! Maybe I’m just like your family – I like the sound of using roasted kabocha in the brownies!

    My mom loves healthy foods that involves steaming vegetables, broth soups with loads of vegetables, or even dishes without the use of salt & garlic (crazy, I know, I do recall her diluting the diluted broth). My parents both don’t like having salty or greasy foods in the kitchen, but they don’t mind eating them at the restaurants, cafes, or even hawkers at least once a week. So it wasn’t a problem for her when I started eating vegan as long as I have all my veggies in my system.

    Since I study food, and I am around people who also study food and feel really passionate about it, I feel extra pressure to really watch what I eat. I like trying to eat healthy because it’s good for me, but it’s tough to feel like I’m under the microscope at times. If you like Betty Crocker brownies, you should try the Ghirardelli brownies. Literally some of the best baked goods I have ever had.

It’s true, I usually only post about the healthy stuff and not the unhealthy stuff but there is plenty of eating out in my life! I do sometimes feel pressure to eat really healthy but then I think, what the heck!? Also, very creative with the brownies!

    I have been waiting for this recipe – woohoo! “Healthifying” goodies is totally up my alley – one of my favorite things to do, even if it often doesn’t turn out quite right (and sometimes “tastes like poo” – your words, not mine! :)). While I prefer healthifying for most daily treats, I am totally with you that there’s a time and a place for enjoying EVERYTHING guilt-free!! From people who know me, the comments always come when I eat something “unhealthy,” which makes it less guilt-free because I feel like I have to defend myself. From people who don’t know me, the comments are about how healthy my food is, which I love because it’s a way to share my love of healthy AND delicious food with them, and hopefully encourage them! OK, long comment over :).

    I think your outlook on food is extremely healthy. Everything in moderation. I’m noticing, especially now that I am in a program with “aspiring dieticians” that people assume because of my size/program of study I never eat sugar laden or high fat foods. It drives me nuts that people critic my choices and for that reason sometimes I choose to eat healthier foods around certain individuals or less healthy options to prove a point to others. I know this isn’t a good way to be because I should fulfill my cravings but it’s hard not to be influenced by the looks/comments others say. Just because I might know some options are less nutrient dense doesn’t mean I don’t eat them! I’m SO thankful for you sharing this recipe and I am even happier to hear you preach words of wisdom. 🙂

    People comment on my food choices all of the time. Just last weekend a friend was making a dip (with more cheese than you want to know) in front of me and when she served it I had a bite and she said- I can’t believe your eating this after you saw what went in it!! I said it’s all about moderation. Plus there wasn’t much else to eat and I was starving. I totally get why people ask me but on the other hand I never try to force my eating habits on others either. that’s so interesting that you family liked these and you didn’t!?

    This brings up such a conflicting topic. Is it okay to not eat any junk food or “indulge” in super sugary/artifical foods? In my opinion, the answer to that is yes. It’s not necessary or an integral part of being human to eat chemicals. I don’t think that we need to restrict either, but we don’t have to eat those things to be happy or live life fully. For those who enjoy them though and don’t suffer any negative consqeuences from eating them, then I feel like they are healthy pieces to their life. But those who choose not to are not being to strict. Anyways, I guess my point is that I’d rather have something that both tastes good and is also (at least somewhat) good for me too, and not something that might taste slightly better but contain some fake ingredient that could put my health at risk.

    I’m happy to say that you make the first option incredibly well 🙂 Kabocha and brownies. Winner!

    Oh my friend and I just had a long conversation on how people always comment on what we eat but mostly when we eat ‘bad’. I even find myself defending a grilled cheese and fries to people who eat pizza everyday. They always say ‘ohhh is that part of your diet?’. Um no, I’m not on a diet, it’s just how I eat. I like eating vegetables and ‘clean’ food most of the time but every once in a while I want a cheeseburger. Very frusturating sometimes, but I’m trying to ignore it more.
    And, the last thing I expected to read after Roasted Kabocha Squash was brownies! haha You come up with some good recipes lady. I’m sure my family would much rather be your guinea pig than mine 🙂

    I’m okay with healthifying recipes as long as they taste good! I’ve made some seriously delicious healthified recipes (like no bake date bars from Oh She Glows, Dreena Burton’s Super Charge Me cookies, various banana breads, pumpkin breads, etc) but I’ve also made some awful ones. I think the key is to not take out TOO much of the sugar and TOO much of the fat. That being said, if I make something healthified, it’s generally because I plan on eating it for snacks multiple days in a row. If I’m just making something for a special occasion that I’m only going to eat once, like a cake for a birthday or dessert for a holiday dinner, I tend to just go for the real butter, sugar, fat filled dessert!

    These definitely look like they fit in the category of a good healthified recipe – I bet those dates add amazing natural sweetness!

    There is a fine line between healthifying something and then eating something as it is to savour the true beauty- case in point- the becky crocker brownies- healthifying them is borderline criminal!

      definitely more chocolately but I would say they are more fudgy thanks to the squash rather than cakey like most brownies. Try and find some kabocha. It’s delicious!

    These brownies look like such a satisfying texture! I actually have a really hard time finding kabocha.

      Aw too bad! Still pretty cheap anyway. Bulk Barn may be my favourite place on earth 😉
