It’s just not winter without squash, and these oven fries make our fave cool-weather veggie even more comforting. Packed with vitamin A, the squash’s naturally sweet flavor makes these a great stand-in for sweet potato fries at just a fraction of the calories



  • 3 cups Butternut Squash
  • 1 tbsp Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 4 tsp Cinnamon, Ground
  • 1 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, Freshly Ground
  • 1/4 cup All Natural No Stir Almond Butter, Creamy
  • 1/4 cup Unsweetened Greek Style Probiotic Yogurt


1 Preheat the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
2 Peel the squash, slice in half lengthwise and remove the seeds. Chop the neck into fries, approximately ¾-inch thick. Slice the “base” into ¾-inch slices.
3 Pat the fries with paper towel to remove excess liquid.
4 Place the squash, coconut oil, ginger, nutmeg and 1 Tbsp of the cinnamon in a bowl, then stir to combine.
5 Pour the fries into a baking sheet lined with greased parchment paper.
6 Bake for 20 to 25 minutes (until the squash starts to brown), turning the fries after 10 minutes.
7 While the fries are baking, transfer the almond butter to a small microwave-safe mixing bowl, and microwave on high for 10 seconds.
8 Add the Greek yogurt and the remaining cinnamon, then stir to combine.
9 Remove the fries from the oven and serve immediately, with the dipping sauce on the side.
