2 Tbsp. (0.5 oz) ground flax seeds

1/2 tsp. (2.5 ml) ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp. (0.62 ml) organic ground nutmeg or 5-spice or anise/fennel/nutmeg
1/8 tsp. (0.62 ml) sea salt
Process the butternut squash in the food processor with S-blade until finely
chopped, but not pureed. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Process the
zucchini in the food processor until finely chopped (pulse chop to prevent
overprocessing). Stir into the butternut squash with the remaining

115°F for 16-24 hours.
Store in airtight container after completely cooled down. Stays fresh and crispy at room temperature for 1 month and stays fresh in freezer for 3-4 months. If you find the granola is not as crispy as it was at the beginning, dehydrate for a few hours at 115°F until crispy again.
