  3. then coat each exposed side of the squash with more coconut oil
  4. turn over and place face down on baking sheet, so that they skin side is facing up
  5. preheat oven to 325 degrees and when ready cook for approximately 45 minutes (this may vary)

  9. you can enjoy this as a side by either scooping all the contents out and eating it right out of the skin.
