Cinnamon Maple Kabocha Squash

Ever thought of eating vegetables for dessert? This winter squash makes a delicious sweet treat and tastes delicious on its own or along with some tangy yogurt.

Nutrition Facts:

  • Kabocha squash is high in eye-protecting vitamin A.
  • Cinnamon functions as an antioxidant with the help of polyphenols.
  • Maple syrup provides a more natural sweetening alternative to processed, refined sugar. It also contains more antioxidants and minerals!

Ingredients
  • 1 ct - Kabocha squash, diced or sliced
  • 2 tbsp - Maple syrup
  • 1/4 tsp - Cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp - Melted butter

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cut kabocha in half and clean out membranes and seeds with a spoon. Be careful! Skin will be tough and difficult to cut. Firmly place your knife in the center of the squash and rock back and forth until cut through.
  3. Chop or slice kabocha squash.
  4. Melt butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Mix in maple syrup and cinnamon. Add squash and toss until coated.
  5. Bake squash 15-20 minutes until fork tender. Serve and enjoy!
