Recipe: Baked Acorn Squash

December 22, 2014

Mmm, squash. I love squash. Last night I made baked acorn squash with brown sugar. The original Paula Deen recipe called for brown sugar, but to make it paleo, I used coconut sugar. I was so happy with the results. They were delicious and tender and I wish I could eat them every day.

  • 2 acorn squash, cut in 1/2
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • Salt and pepper
How to Make: 
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. 
  2. Cut the squash in half and scoop out all the seeds and pulp. 
  3. In a small bowl, mix the ingredients together. 
  4. Brush the mixture over the squash and place them on a baking sheet (cut side up!). 
  5. Bake about hour hour or until the squash is tender. 
  6. Enjoy!
