It can be hard to enjoy fresh produce in winter - the frozen ground makes growing in Minnesota something of a challenge. We do, however, have some things available to us. One of those things? Squash. And with an apple crumble, made with our grain-free granola (of course) to add a warm touch of sweetness, it's a special dish that reminds us why winter is a-okay in our book.
Without further ado, here is the recipe:
Baked Squash with Apple Crumble
1 medium-sized Squash (can be butternut, acorn, spaghetti, really any kind)
½ cup water
1 apple (we like Braeburn, but any kind will do)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, chilled
¾ cup Cardamom Raisin OR Cinnamon Cranberry Coco, Bee & Nut: Grain Free Granola
- Preheat oven to 450 F
- Cut squash in half, remove seeds.
- Pour ½ C. of water into a 9 x 13 baking dish, and place both squash halves face down in the dish.
- Bake squash for 30-40 min.
- While squash is baking, diced the apple and the butter and combine in a bowl with the grain free granola. This will be your filling.
- Remove squash from the oven and scoop the filling into the squash.
- Bake for another 10-15 minutes.
- Take out of the oven and let the squash cool for 3-5 minutes
