I used to buy bagged granola, but after reading the nutrition labels and seeing all of the added crap - I decided I’d like to give homemade granola a try. I’ve tried a couple different varieties of homemade granola and this apple - cinnamon - raisin combination has by far been my favorite! The flavors resemble a cross between apple pie and an oatmeal raisin cookie.
I found several recipes online, but decided to create my own using basic ingredients. Ain’t nobody got time for extra unnecessary ingredients. When it comes to cooking and baking, I prefer simpler recipes - unless simplifying comes at the cost of flavor. In this case, the recipe is both flavorful and super easy.
I typically enjoy granola for breakfast sprinkled on top of plain vanilla greek yogurt, but since this recipe made so much, I decided to change things up and enjoy the granola as a bowl of cereal. I don’t drink regular milk so I had it with unsweetened vanilla almond milk and omg it was such a great combo. If neither of those suit your fancy, this granola also tastes great by itself!
