Paleo Squashed Butternut Squash

  • Author: Raj -
  • Yield: 3-6 servings 1x


  • 1 butternut squash
  • 23 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 knob butter
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 5 Tbsp maple syrup
  • salt to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 400 F.

  3. Coat with olive oil and place cut-side-down on cookie sheet.
  4. Bake until flesh is soft (check with a fork), 30-45 minutes depending on your squash.
  5. Remove from oven and, using an oven mitt to hold squash, scoop flesh into medium-large pot or bowl.
  6. Use a potato masher to process squash.
  7. Add remaining ingredients and mix together with the masher.
  8. Top with green onions or crispy fried onions.
