  • 1 large butternut squash peeled, seeded and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1-2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup (grade A or B)
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans (optional)


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Place squash on a large sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and maple syrup. Toss with cinnamon and pepper.
  • Place in oven and bake for 30 minutes, turning once during the middle of the roasting time (add pecans during this time too, if desired).
  • When squash is fork-tender, remove and cool for 5 minutes before serving.
