Apple Cinnamon Granola

I adapted my own version of this from 3 or four other recipes. I wanted a low fat, low cal granola so this is what I came up with. This version isn't real sweet but it has an excellent flavor. I wanted my granola pretty crunchy so I left it in the oven for almost 90 minutes. The only thing is, you have to keep a close eye on it or it could burn. For the first 60 minutes I stirred it every 10-15 minutes. For the last 30 minutes I stirred it about every 5.

Thanks for posting this recipe. I was looking for something with applesauce in it because I've been making applesauce this early fall...This smells delicious when baking and tastes great!
