Ingredients

  • 1 large butternut squash
  • 1 tablespoon ghee
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • pinch of salt
  • Optional: add some ground cinnamon to taste.

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. To prepare the butternut squash, I usually slice off the top and bottom. Then I carefully, starting at the top, slice the butternut squash in half, lengthwise. Clean out all the seeds.
  3. Sprinkle the flesh side of the squash with salt and pepper. Then place face down on a baking pan. I usually spray a little spray olive oil cooking spray on the pan first.
  4. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until done and fork tender. Allow to cool and then remove all the squash and place in a food processor.
  5. Add the ghee, maple syrup and salt. Pulse and whirl on the food processor until mixture reaches the desired consistency. Take a taste and adjust seasonings as necessary.
  6. Enjoy!
