Something that taste like candy that is actually super healthy for you, say it isn’t so! While these little cubes of deliciousness are packed full of nutrients they also hit that sweet tooth or pumpkin craving you might be having. What gives them there wonderful taste? Maple Syrup with a Pumpkin Spice kick to it…
Butternut Squash in itself has many health benefits including being loaded with Fiber and Vitamin C, it prevents high blood pressure, keeps your bones strong, reduces inflammation, and boosts the immune system all while aiding to weight loss. Then there is the Maple Syrup, while deliciously sweet it is packed with antioxidant and immune boosting vitamins. Cinnamon is great for gut health due to its high antioxidants. Cinnamon also has many anti-inflammatory properties, is known to fight infections and viruses and is great for the skin.
Not only is it delicious but this dish is super easy to make. All you need to do is cube a Butternut Squash (or you can cheat and buy it already cubed, I do), throw in some maple syrup and add your spice. Spread the cubes out on a cookie sheet and put them into the oven and let the magic happen.
