Hasselback Butternut Squash roasted and topped with butter, coconut sugar, earth fed muscle witch's whey pumpkin spice protein and sprouted grain Ezekiel granola!

I'm getting a bit carried away with the hasselback-ing lately but I just couldn't help myself.  I saw Seasons & Suppers Maple Pecan Hasselback Butternut Squash on The Feed Feed and I had to check it out for myself.

The preparation and cook time on this is a bit longer than my usual recipes but sooo worth it.
