  1. To prepare the granola: Preheat the oven to 325F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  5. To prepare the butternut squash: In a medium bowl, toss all ingredients to coat.
  6. Add to a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook covered for 10-15 minutes then remove the lid and finish cooking until butternut squash is tender and glossy.
  7. Set aside to cool, or chill in the refrigerator until you’re ready to use.
