Vegan Granola

As redundant as this title might sound, for some odd reason about 99 percent of the recipes I find for scrumptious granola seems to almost always include the dreadful honey. For example:

"May's Simple & Delicious Granola"
8 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups wheat germ
1 1/2 cups oat bran
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup honey
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups sweetened dried cranberries

I've seen a lot of recipes simply not include it but according to my pre-veg experiences, the flavor factor of said recipes simply does not match up to traditional granola. (I'm still in transition to veganism, but would like to have the recipe so I can start doing some more detailed diet cutting.) Any tips on getting that genuinely sweet and yummy granola? Is brown sugar enough? Cane juice? Beet Sugar?

All opinions, tips, and recipes very welcome :D
