Homemade Granola

Found a cool homemade granola recipe online and thought I'd try my hand at it - it was super easy, but made more granola than we'll be able to eat in a month! I'm considering making a batch to give away as Christmas gifts, and must assure you that it's really, REALLY good (especially warm, right out of the oven!) Serve between layers of yogurt and fruit for a healthy way to start your day!

1 box uncooked oats
1 2 lb. box trail mix (I used cranberry, almond, sunflower seed)
1/2 c. honey
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. ground ginger
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. applesauce
2 T. canola oil
Preheat oven to 300. Mix all ingredients together and spread half on a rimmed cookie sheet in a single layer. Bake 45 min., stirring every 10 min. When first batch is done, place in a gallon size zip bag and start cooking the 2nd batch. Make sure to vent the bag as the granola cools!
