I know that there are a lot of granola and cereals available at the grocery store and it may feel pointless to make at home. The reason I make apple and honey granola from scratch is to have a good tasting morning cereal that is not filled with tons of sugar, oil and too many nuts. When I do not have time to make my own granola I buy this healthy kosher pareve gluten free cereal from one of my favorite brands.
