Butternut Squash Latkes

This is one of the simplest recipes I make, but it is so delicious I had to share it.

Butternut Squash Latkes
1 Butternut Squash
2 Tbsp Onion Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
Fresh cracked Pepper
Coconut Oil for frying

Cook the squash till it is soft. I use my pressure cooker to steam it, but you could bake it, stovetop steam, or whatever other method you use.  Once it is cooked, allow the squash to cool and scoop out.

In a large bowl, mix squash with all remaining ingredients except the coconut oil.  In a heavy bottom skillet, heat coconut oil.
  Once oil is hot, scoop squash mixture into small pancakes in the oil.
Allow the squash to cook till it become crispy and brown on the first side (5-7 minutes) and carefully flip.
Allow squash to cook for additional 5 minutes or so until it is crispy again.  Add additional salt if you want while the pancakes are still hot.
