Maple Cinnamon Honey Butternut Squash

blog-post

This dish screams fall all over it!

To be completely honest with you, I was never quite a fan of butternut squash and I probably would have never made this recipe if my mom didn’t bring me over this huugggeee squash.  So what did I do?  Well I obviously went onto Pinterest to search up some ideas on what to do with this fricking thing!

First off, let me just say how amazing butternut squash is for you.  It’s low in calories and high in fiber, which is an amazing aid in weight loss.  It is filled with antioxidants, high in vitamins C, A, and B6, a cancer-fighting agent, rich in folate and is full of many other great benefits! WIN, WIN, WIN!

One recipe that caught my eye was a honey glazed butternut squash.  I mean anything glazed with honey is ah-mazing, am I right?  So I naturally decided to add a little extra flava to these bad boys, and let me tell you, it turned out incredible!  Not to mention super easy to make.  I’m officially a fan of butternut squash and loved it so much that I decided to share this recipe with you all!  Hope you all enjoy and feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think!
