We love this recipe at our house.  We do skip the corn syrup and add 1/2 cup of unsweetened apple juice.  Reducing the sugar to 1/2 cup is still delicious and very sweet.  We top with low-fat vanilla yogurt. 

i replaced the apples and butternut squash with peaches it was delicious

This recipe is very delicious. Would be perfect for fall.
