  • Wash the butternut squash to remove any debris or dirt. Peel the squash, cut squash in half lengthwise and remove seeds. Using a sharp knife, cut the squash into bite sized pieces.
  • Drizzle the maple syrup over the cubed squash. Then add paprika and garlic powder over the squash. Stir to combine well.
  • Air Fry the squash at 380F/193C for 20-22 minutes. Be sure to stir (or shake basket) to mix up the squash at least two times during the cooking process




  • Use a sharp knife. You need to be careful but a sharp knife is needed to cut the squash.
  • Use a high quality vegetable peeler. Complete disclosure, I broke mine while taking pictures of this recipe. I have invested in a new one, hopefully it lasts a long time!
  • If you are using small squash, you can use one than one. If you have a lot of cubes, you may need to adjust the cook time to get it evenly cooked.
  • Use different spices. If you have a special combination of spices you like, use them! Make this recipe your own!
  • This recipe can be made in an air fryer with a basket or tray. If you are using a tray, I suggest putting it on the middle section.
  • If your air fryer has more than one function, I would suggest using the "Air Fryer" function.
  • This air fryer recipe DOES reheat well, so you can make this dish ahead of time and reheat or you can use it for meal prep.
