Cinnamon Butternut Squash

Sweet, Savory Snack Full of Fiber! 

Healthy food can be quick and convenient too! Anytime you can get more veggies in your day, the better. This is a quick, healthy snack or side dish. A great alternative instead of digging into chips or cookies.

Fiber from the squash and healthy fat from the Nutiva Coconut Butter will keep you full longer, while the cinnamon adds a burst of sweetness! Coconut Butter is a healthy source of fat, great for thyroid and brain health and is satiating so you feel full. You can also try Nikki’s Vanilla  Cake Batter Coconut Butter for a sweet, dessert flavor!

When a sugar craving hits, this is one of my go to recipes because it’s very quick and simple to make and is just the right amount of sweetness without triggering more sugar cravings.
