Homemade Cran-apple Granola

This is another gem I found on Finding Joy in my Kitchen. Sno White has some fabulous recipes over there so definitely check her out! Although most have made it here...and some I have altered! This is the second time I made this and I cut the sugar and added more applesauce so if you want to see the original by all means check it out! Oh and did I mention this is SUPER easy and low fat!

Homemade Cran-Apple Granola-adapted from Sno White
6 cups old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix in small sauce pan applesauce, cinnamon, and sugar. Stir until sugar has melted. Scoop sugar mixture onto oatmeal and stir until mixed thoroughly. Mix in cranberries. Spread onto cookie sheet and bake for 10 mins. Stir and bake for another 10 mins. Shut oven off and open the door for granola to crisp up! Place in air tight container.
