Stuffed Squash for Food Prep
If you’re looking for breakfast items you can make ahead of time, these stuffed acorn squash is a great choice. I’ve been baking 2 acorn squash every Sunday as part of my weekly food prep.
That gives me 4 servings of stuffed squash I can eat during the week for breakfasts and snacks. I would fill each one up individually as needed, either the night before or morning of.Print
- 1 small to medium-sized acorn squash
- coconut yogurt
- nut butter
- Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
- To make acorn squash, cut them in half lengthwise and place them on a baking sheet face down and bake until the skin can be easily be pierced with a fork, about 30-40 minutes depending on the size of the squash.
- Once they’re soft, scoop out the seeds and discard (you can also remove the seeds before roasting but they’re super easy to remove once cooked).
- Fill half the squash with your choice of fillings and enjou.
- Store any extras in the fridge in a container for up to 4 days.
Nutritional details for this recipe will vary but if your half squash serving is 200 grams and you serve it with 4 tbsp (60 g) of coconut yogurt, 1 tbsp of peanut butter and 1/4 cup of low-fat granola it will be 350 calories with 54 grams of carbs, 12 grams of fat and 9 grams of protein.
