$2.26 recipe/$0.57 serving
Air fryer butternut squash cubes or fries can be made in under 20 minutes using your air fryer! This healthy recipe is so easy to follow and customizable! Make sweet or savory butternut squash that are vegan, Whole30 or keto friendly!
Peel the butternut squash and cut it into cubes or fries (depending on what you prefer).
Spray the basket of your air fryer with olive oil spray and add the butternut squash cubes or fries. Be careful not to overcrowd the basket, you only want one single layer.
Cook at 375F for 16 minutes.
After 8 minutes of cooking, shake the air fryer basket to move around the squash. Spray the squash with olive oil spray and add optional salt. Shake again. Continue to cook the butternut squash.
With just 4 minutes left, shake the basket again (so nothing burns).
Enjoy the butternut squash immediately for best texture.
Fridge: These are best right out of the air fryer, but you can also store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Reheat in the toaster oven or in the air fryer, at 350F for 4-5 minutes to warm up and crisp up the skin.
I do not recommend freezing, as the texture will be completely different after freezing.
