With only four ingredients, this side dish comes together in no time and since I have a giant sweet tooth, I couldn’t get enough of the pop of sweetness from the sprinkling of brown sugar.


  • 2 1/2 cups of pre-peeled and cubed butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Melt coconut oil in the microwave in a large, microwave-safe bowl (approximately 25 – 30 seconds)
  3. Add brown sugar and cinnamon to the coconut oil and stir
  4. Toss butternut squash in the cinnamon sugar mixture until thoroughly coated
  5. Pour butternut squash onto a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray
  6. Roast for approximately 25 to 30 minutes, tossing halfway through
  7. Allow to cool slightly before eating and enjoy
