The texture was wonderful but it could have used more flavor! I used butternut squash and 1 cup of cooked quinoa (I was trying to use up leftovers). Next time I would add a touch more sugar and twice the cinnamon. Also, I stirred the quinoa in with the wet ingredients since the recipe did not stipulate when to add it in.
