Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Rub the coconut oil all over the flesh of the squash, then season with a pinch of salt. Put the squash halves cut side up on the prepared baking sheet, then drizzle with the maple syrup.

Bake until you can pierce the flesh with a fork, about 1 hour.
