Apple Cinnamon Granola

I used to always 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!
