  • Air Fryer


  • 1 small - medium butternut squash cut into ¾ inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon chili powder


  • First, cut the ends off of the butternut squash. Then, cut in half and then, half again. You should have 4 pieces. Scoop out the seeds. Lastly, slice the butternut squash into fries (about ¾ inch thick). Watch the video above if you are more of a visual person.
  • Place the cut butternut squash into a large mixing bowl. Add the oil and spices.
  • Use your hands to make sure the butternut squash is evenly coated in the spices and oil.
  • Next, lay the butternut squash in the air fryer basket. Make sure they do not touch. This will create optimal crispiness. Cook at 375 degrees F for about 14-18 minutes.
  • You will need to make this recipe in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your air fryer. When a batch finishes cooking, allow the fries to cool on a wire cooling rack while you cook the next batch.
  • Serve immediately with your favorite dipping sauce!
