Butternut Apple Skewers

 

Prep time: 10 minutes

Cooking time: 32 minutes

Yields: 8 people

 

Ingredients:

 

1 medium butternut squash

3 teaspoons cinnamon

2 teaspoons nutmeg

2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil, melted

2 tablespoons almond or cashew butter

1/2 lemon, juiced

2 tablespoons maple syrup

3-4 apples, chopped

8-10 wooden skewers

 

Directions:

 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Peel and dice butternut squash into about 1-inch cubes.

Mix together the spices, ghee or oil, nut butter, lemon juice and maple syrup. Add a bit of water if too thick (should be like a thick dressing).

In a bowl, pour 2/3 of the mixture over squash and toss, covering all the pieces evenly.

Place squash on a baking sheet and into oven for 20 minutes.

Mix apple into remaining sauce mixture.

Remove squash from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes.

Alternate apple and squash pieces on skewers.

Put back into the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until both are soft.

 

Notes:

 

These are great as an appetizer, dessert or snack.

They will keep in the fridge for about 3 days.
