Soft granola suggestions and ingredient ideas?

How do you get soft (read: not crunchy) granola? I've tried lowering the oven temp, shortening the baking time, adding apple sauce (which just made it soggy)... I'd like to find a recipe that makes gorgeous soft granola. Any tips?
Also, I'm in a bit of a granola mix rut. It seems like it always tastes the same, even if I change up almonds for pecans, agave nectar for honey, etc. I think I need some new ingredient ideas. Suggestions?

I have been making these wonderful granola bars for many months, and often transform them into (tender) granola by underbaking them by about 10 minutes: http://food52.com/recipes... To break them into chunks of granola, I place chunks in a mixer, then mix on the paddle until they reach a smaller consistency.

I don't know why, but I've made two kinds of granola - one kind with dry milk, and the other without. The one without always burns pretty quickly if I don't watch it, while the one with dry milk does not. It also bakes at a lower temperature. Another trade trick is to use a glass casserole pan instead of a metal cake pan. Here is a recipe that I go by that produces good results - but follow the suggestion of taking it out before it looks ready! http://www.homesicktexan...
