For the record, I fully intended to be this girl's friend after I had some time to get over her, and I told her as much. Why the heck is she so mad about that?

God I think what you did is completely mature in ALL ways and completely respectful. You didn't just disappear, you didn't play into the "friend zoned" crap, you didn't have a go at her. You got her decision, respected her honesty, and knew you needed to get over those feelings.
I think she was completely immature and rude and you probably got lucky here. But no, you were completely in the right here.
I can't even get why she's mad. Maybe she did want a friend zoned dude, someone she could string along and when you said you wanted to get over her, took it personally. I have NO idea.
