Butternut Squash, Apple and Cranberry Bake

I love a good baked vegetable dish.  Squash and apples are a great combination, especially with a hint of maple syrup and some warm spices.  This makes a great side to bring to a potluck or just enjoy at home :)

  • 1/4 cup melted coconut oil 
  • 1 regular size butternut squash peeled and cut into bite sized cubes
  • 2 medium apples or 1 apple and 1 pear, cubed (peeled or unpeeled)
  • 1/3 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped dates (optional)
  • 1/2 tablespoon pure maple syrup or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Combine all ingredients into an oven safe dish and stir to fully coat.
  3. Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes or until squash is tender.  Stirring 2-3 times while baking to rotate the squash and apples.
