Creamy and sweet and spiced with cinnamon, this cinnamon mashed acorn squash is a warm and inviting side dish that pairs perfectly with a variety of main dishes.



2 acorn squash (3 cups mashed)

1 tablespoon coconut oil

1/4 cup maple syrup

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon salt


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Cut squash in half, scoop out seeds, and place face down in a rimmed baking dish.  Pour in 1/2 inch of water into baking dish.  Bake squash for 45-55 minutes, until squash is soft enough to mash.  Scoop squash out of skin (be careful, it will be hot!) and mash it in a heat-proof bowl.  Once it is smooth, mix in coconut oil, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt.  Enjoy!
