Sweet Cinnamon Squash

When I think of “fall food,” warm meals and pumpkin spice lattes instantly pop up in my mind. Since I posted my healthy pumpkin spice latte recipe the other day, today I want to share with you a great way to prepare one of my alltime favorite fall foods: Butternut squash! I love butternut squash in soup or simply roasted. Roasting your own butternut squash is easy, delicious, and healthy!  And adding cinnamon makes for the best fall treat.

Here’s how to make your own sweet cinnamon squash:

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cut the squash open and remove the inside “threads” of the squash. Place onto a baking sheet.

Lightly brush it with olive oil, then sprinkle sea salt, cinnamon, and coconut sugar atop the butternut squash halves.

Bake for 45-55 minutes. You can dig in right away, or save some for a later day (if it lasts that long without you first devouring it!). I love eating mine fresh out of the oven, which is perfect for a cold and cozy autumn afternoon.

Enjoy! 🙂

Fun Foodie Fact: According to the USDA National Nutrient Database, one cup of butternut squash provides over 4 times the amount of necessary daily Vitamin A! Vitamin A does wonders for the body such as boost immunity, promote cell repair and renewal, and produce glowing skin and healthy eyes!
