Preheat the oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Prepare the kabocha squash. Remove the seeds with a spoon and discard.
Using a sharp knife, cut the kabocha squash into ½-inch thick slices.
Place the kabocha squash slices on the baking sheet and toss with avocado oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Bake for 30-35 minutes, flipping the kabocha slices halfway through, until tender and a fork easily pierces the flesh of the squash.
While the squash is baking, stir the maple syrup, brown sugar, balsamic vinegar, soy sauce and garlic in a small bowl.
Remove the kabocha squash from the oven and turn to broil. Using a silicone pastry brush, glaze the kabocha squash with the maple syrup mixture and broil for 1-2 minutes.
Flip the kabocha squash and glaze again. Broil for 1-2 minutes.
Garnish with the sesame seeds and enjoy!
