This is from Joy in the Kitchen. I like how very simple it is. It still doesn't beat Vanilla Granola, but it is a good change of taste, especially for autumn and it has much less sugar. I'm sure it will be in our rotation for quite a while.

Apple Granola

12 C oats

1/2 C applesauce
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 C brown sugar

Combine applesauce (do not use chunky applesauce), cinnamon and brown sugar in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until mixture boils. You may need to add 1/4-1/2 C water to thin the mixture.

Pour the mixture over the oats and stir to combine.

Place granola on a cookie sheet, and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, stirring after 10 minutes.

Turn off the oven, and allow the granola to crisp up in the oven. Be careful to crack open the oven door so the granola does not burn.

Store in an airtight container in your pantry.
