This Honey & Cinnamon Roasted Butternut Squash is a super easy and delicious way to enjoy butternut squash. It is always squash season in this house, no matter the time of year. When you try to vary the vegetables that you eat daily, it’s a plain fact that you are going to run out of interesting options, and soon. It gets so hard jazzing up vegetables all the time and it’s something I try to do on a regular basis, because let’s admit it; eating veggies isn’t always fun or enjoyable, sometimes it’s a chore.

Add in the fact that I have picky eaters and well, this Mama goes crazy most of the time.

My daughter still won’t eat squash so her default vegetable of choice is raw cauliflower. I’ve given up cooking for her, she is happy with raw carrots, cucumbers or cauliflower. So be it. I am darn well cooking something fabulous for the three of us who aren’t so picky in this family! Roasted squash tops my list of loves, for sure. I loved this recipe because a) no processed sugars, unlike most recipes and b) the cinnamon is SO delicious and c) it’s sweet. It’s a tricky recipe. You don’t mind eating your veggies. A bit of unpasteurized honey and butter is not bad for you at all and cinnamon is very good for you!

Did I also mention it’s soooo easy?  It is. The most work is cutting the squash which can be a real PITA, but after that you simply roast it in the oven and then drizzle the ingredients over the top. Easy peasy. And if your kids don’t like it?

More for you.

Happy cooking everyone!
