“Well here I was with quite a large squash so I decided to try something a bit different and came up with this recipe. We enjoyed it and I hope you will too. Because I was just creating this recipe and most people like a bit of oil I used a tbsp, but you can eliminate it--the spices will adhere to the squash without it!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 medium size butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed and cut into fry chips, approx 1/2-inch thick pieces by 3-4-inch long
  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and cut into quarters
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
  • 12 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 14 teaspoon clove
  • 18 teaspoon nutmeg


  1. Mix your spices together and pour them into a plastic bag that is large enough to hold the squash.
  2. Add the oil (if using) & pour in the squash Shake the bag so all the chips are evenly coated.
  3. Place them with the apple quarters on a parchment covered pizza stone single layer or on a parchment-covered cookie sheet.
  4. Bake in 350°F oven for 15 minutes, flip the chips and the apples continue baking for a further 10 minutes or until the chips are tender.
