  • Crockpot


  • 1 whole acorn squash stem removed and slice in half
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • ¼ cup water


  • Begin by spraying your slow cooker with non-stick spray.
  • Remove the stem and then slice your acorn squash in half and remove the seeds in the middle.
  • Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, and two tablespoons of maple syrup and two tablespoons of brown sugar to the squash.
  • Add the ¼ cup of water to the bottom of your slow cooker to prevent any syrup or sugar from burning.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or until the squash is no longer firm.
