My version I make calls for using frozen juice concentrate for the main sweetener. It is 3 cups oats, 1/3 cup apple juice concentrate, 2 T to 1/4 cup brown sugar, spices and nuts as you like (i usually use a healthy pinch of cinnamon, and a touch of ginger and about 1/3 cup each of pecans, almonds and coconut flakes). Bring the concentrate to a simmer with the sugar and spices. Stir well. Toss all the other ingredients with the juice mixture. Bake at 325 until golden brown (stirring every 10 minutes or so). Toss in any dried fruits you like.

You could also use brown rice syrup to sweeten the granola - it is much less sweet than sugar and has the consistency of honey. It also supposedly has a lower glycemic index, although I've read conflicting things about that, so if you're diabetic I wouldn't go nuts with it just in case.

Melissa Clark's recipe for a granola made with olive oil. You can find it online in the archives of her "Good Appetite" column in the New York Times and also in her new cookbook. I make it all the time.
