Butternut and Apple Heaven


  • butternut (+- 300g) peeled and chopped
  • 5 apples
  • 50 – 100 g walnuts or almonds
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • pinch salt
  • 1-2 tbsp honey
  • Granola (see my recipe) – optional
  • Organic peanut butter – optional


  1. Preheat oven at 170 degrees C
  2. Chop 3 of the apples (you don’t have to peel them)
  3. Add the butternut, apples,cumin, cinnamon, salt and honey to a greased baking dish and bake for about 30 minutes.
  4. Chop the nuts and place in a food processor with the baked ingredients. Blend until smooth.
  5. Slice the last two apples and top with the butternut mixture. Top with peanut butter and granola. I also topped some toasted banana bread with this and died and went to heaven 😉
