  • Author: Michelle

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Add the cubed butternut squash to the baking sheet and top with 1 tbsp of avocado oil. Bake in the preheated oven, rotating halfway through for 25 minutes. The squash should be softened. Remove from the oven and allow to cool completly.

  5. Mold the mixture into 1″ tater tot shapes and place on a parchment lined baking sheet, evenly spaced. Top with the remainder of the avocado oil.
