Recipe of the Week: Baked Squash with Apple Crumble

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

Serves 2

Ingredients:

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
