Prepare the Squash


Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.


Peel butternut squash. Cut in half the long way carefully. Remove seeds from inside. Chop up into half inch cubes. Toss with coconut oil and then place squash pieces on parchment lined baking sheet. Place in oven and roast for 40 minutes until pieces are roasted and lightly golden brown.



Place roasted squash in a large bowl and combine with chopped dates, pistachios, pomegranate seeds, honey, and orange juice. Add more honey and orange juice to your taste if you like. Serve warm.
