Acorn Squash Stuffed with Spiralized Spiced Apples
The spiralized apple stuffing in this baked squash is a fun twist on the traditional apple stuffed squash. Not only does it look more interesting, but it tastes better than the traditional recipe, due to the broken down apple. The spiralized apple allows the apple to absorb more flavors as well as is easier to eat because it's not as dense as apple chunks. Bite into fall with this tasty savory, yet sweet dish!

- Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and cut squash in half, and place both sides face down on sheet. Once the oven is heated, place squash in oven and bake for 30 minutes.
- While the squash is baking, spiralize the apples. Warm the coconut oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the apples, cinnamon, and cranberries. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
- After 30 minutes, remove the squash from the oven and flip right side up. Evenly divide the apple filling between the two halves. Place the squash back in the oven face up and continue baking for 10 minutes.
- Remove squash from oven and garnish with sunflower seeds.
