Makes about 6 servings


  • 1 large butternut squash — about 3 pounds, peeled, seeded, and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 Tbsps avocado oil, melted coconut oil, or ghee
  • 1 Tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper


Preheat your oven to 400 degrees f. and position two racks in the upper and lower thirds of your oven.

Line 2 large baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.

Place the squash cubes in a large bowl. Sprinkle with all seasonings then drizzle with oil.

Toss well until thoroughly coated. Divide the squash cubes between the two baking sheets and spread them in a single layer with no overlapping.

Roast for 15 minutes then remove the pans from the oven and switch the positions on the upper and lower racks.

Continue baking until the squash is tender and slightly charred, about 15 more minutes. Remove from the oven transfer to a serving dish.

Serve warm and enjoy!
