Butternut Squash as a Side or Dessert

This Butternut Squash dish is super simple and really delicious. I plan to make this again for Thanksgiving Day as dessert, but you can also use it for an amazing side dish.

1 Butternut Squash
1" ginger
Cinnamon (to taste)
1 tsp coconut oil
1/2 handful of unsweetened fine shredded coconut

Step #1: Peel and cube butternut squash (approx. 1" square). Place in parchment lined baking dish.
Step #2: Add coconut oil, sprinkle in cinnamon, peel & zest ginger onto butternut squash.  Toss well.
Step #3: Bake on 350* for about 45 mins or until fork tender.  Turn off oven, throw 1/2 handful unsweetened coconut and mix. (Enough to give each cube some coconut, add more if desired).  Leave in oven about 5 minutes, remove and enjoy.
