I love to munch handfulls as a snack.It never lasts long! It's a pretty flexible recipe,so you can add or change things.

Extra-Sweet Granola

1/2 c.applesauce
1/4 c.honey(if your'e vegan,maybe subsitute another sweetener)
1 tab. vegetable oil
3/4 tea.salt
2 1/4 c.oats(I just use quaker oats,or store brand,the stuff in the cannister)
1/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. grape nuts-I never seem to have wheat germ on hand,feel free to use that instead-it'd probably be better Cheesy
1 tea. vanilla extract
1/2 c. sliced almonds(or whatever nuts you like)
1/2 to 1 cup dried fruit-I use 1/2 cup dried cranberries,1/4 c.golden raisens,and 1/4 c. regular raisens,use what you like.Get a little bag of dried mixed fruit at the gas station-why not?

Mix everything EXCEPT dried fruit in a big bowl.As one granola recipe I read once says,"otherwise you get little fruit flavored bullets in your granola". Lightly grease a 9 x 13 baking pan or jellyroll pan,you need a pan with sides,so a cookie sheet won't work.Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes,stir thoroughly every 10 minutes.Mixture will be toasty brown.Stir in dried fruit and eat.Store in an airtight container.Makes about 4 cups.
You can change the amounts of fruit and nuts.Maybe use a little of your favorite sweet spice instead of,or in addition to,the vanilla.If you do,I'd just use a little. I wing this one a lot,but I had to contribute to a work cookbook once. So I carefully measured and made a batch.I've never tried alternate sweeteners,like agave nectar or maple syrup. If anyone here does,let me know how it comes out please!

Sounds good, I love granola.  Yours doesn't have much oil in it which I like.  Some other recipes I have found have a ton of oil.
