Simple yet delicious This squash and apple bake is teetering right on the edge of sweet and savoury. I love that line because it can be used for both! Perfect as is for your holiday dinner or top with some vanilla ice cream and enjoy as a dessert!

Squash Apple Bake
3granny smith apples
Preheat oven to 350F.
Peel the butternut squash, slice in half (lengthwise), and scoop out the seeds. Using a sharp knife slice the squash into pieces about 1/2 inch thick. Place in a large bowl. Slice the apples 1/2 inch thick and toss with the sliced squash.
To the squash and apple mixture add the maple syrup, ginger, all spice, cinnamon, and orange juice - toss to coat.
Layer the squash and apple slices into a 9x9 baking dish, alternating between the two until it's filled. Really squish each piece into there - you'll be able to fit more than you think. Now pour the water into the bottom of the pan.
In a small bowl toss together the oats, walnut pieces, and maple syrup. Sprinkle the mixture over the top of the squash apple bake.
Cover the pan with tin foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes.
