Oil-Free Granola

"In looking for a granola recipe to make, I kept finding recipes that included varying amounts of oil, usually a lot of oil! But finally I found an oil-free granola at eaturveggies.com that uses fruit juice instead. I wasn't sure this would really work, but I tried it and it is very good! It's lightly sweet and crunchy, just as granola should be, but without all the calories in the oily granola recipes. This recipe is slightly modified, since the original makes too much for just the two of us."

I love this granola! It has a wonderful flavor and texture (love the cinnamon-orange-vanilla!), it's very healthful (love that it's low-sugar and oil-free!), and it couldn't be easier to make (love using the ziploc bag!). Now we can have our granola and eat it too! Thanks for posting, missmanda!
