Maple Baked Brussels Sprouts

How to make Maple Baked Brussels Sprouts

Brussels Sprouts are naturally high in gut-healthy fiber, but they also contain a megadose of collagen promoting vitamin C and bone protecting vitamin K.  This nutty-tasting cruciferous vegetable complements just about any meal.  The pure maple syrup adds a sweet caramelized flavor to each crispy bite.  Serve our Maple Baked Brussels with your favorite heart-healthy protein like salmon, chicken, or turkey breast, and a side of whole grain quinoa for a balanced nutrient-dense meal.

6-8 / 4 ounce per serving
