Cinnamon Spiced Butternut Chips

06 October 2015

I absolutely love butternut. It's natural sweetness really comes through when baked or grilled, making it the perfect healthy option for those of you who enjoy a bit of sweet with your savory. Butternut is rich in carotene, Vitamin A, Vitamin B , Fibre and Potassium, making it a super pre or post workout snack. This recipe is so simple to make, requires minimal prep time and is absolutely perfect for a lunch or dinner party. (I make these all the time when I entertain, and they are such a hit!) I usually use an air fryer to make my butternut chips, but these can also be easily made using a standard oven.
