  • 1 medium acorn squash
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt, optional


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil or parchment paper and set aside.
  3. Slice the acorn squash in half through the stem and remove the seeds.
  4. Lay the flat, cut-side-down on a cutting board, and slice into 1 inch - 1 1/2 inch slices, starting at the stem.

  5. Lay the acorn squash slices out evenly on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. Sprinkle with the coconut sugar and (optional) sea salt.

  7. Roast for 40-50 minutes, until the squash is tender and a fork pierces the flesh easily.  (Remember, you can eat the skin!)
