A very good granola recipe; I made a half-recipe. I omitted the maple syrup, as I didn't have any, and added an equal amount of water with a tablespoon of maple extract. I omitted the salt for personal preference, and added applesauce to replace the oil in order to cut calories. The mixture seemed dry, so I doubled the applesauce and added two T water, which allowed me to moisten all the oat/bran/germ mixture evenly. Next time I'll use two 9x13 cookie sheets (with rims) instead of just one. The mixture baked evenly, but was still fairly moist at the end of twenty minutes. It is a very humid day, which may have contributed, but I wanted a drier mix so I turned the oven off and continued to bake the mixture for another 20 minutes-stirring every 10 minutes-in the cooling oven until I got the results I wanted. I mixed a pineapple/banana/coconut trail mix in half of the mixture to eat as a snack, and left half plain to use over yogurt and cottage cheese, etc. I'm sure I'll be making this again, although I'll stick to a half-batch to make it easily manageable. Thanks for the recipe, Megan and annie9!
