Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 cup pulp-free orange juice
  • 14 cup coconut sugar
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 acorn squash, halved and seeded (1 1/2 to 1 3/4 lbs each)

Directions

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°F In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring the orange juice to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add coconut sugar and cinnamon. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced by half, about 15 minutes.
  2. 2. Place squash, cut side up, in a baking dish. Pour 2 tablespoons of the orange juice mixture into each half and baste the cut sides. Bake for 40 minutes, basting every 10 to 15 minutes. Squash should be golden and soft when done.
