Megan's Granola

This was my first time making granola, and since Megan's Granola had such great reviews, I decided to give it a try - and was not disappointed. To save some money, I used sunflower, almond, and pumpkin for nuts according to other baker's notes (I was a little iffy on the pumpkin seeds, though - they were a bit of a strong taste). I used unsweetened applesauce instead of oil and added a little extra of the maple and honey, cutting out the brown sugar and it turned out great. I also added about a cup of coconut flakes. I made this in a few batches, baking at 325 the first few times, then trying 300 the last few (as was recommended by many). The granola turned out best at 300 in my opinion. Definitely a recipe I will be saving and using as a base for all of my other granola experiments.
