Apple Honey Granola

I've posted a recipe for applesauce granola before, and this one is quite similar, but it is somehow ten times better.  Perhaps it is the cloves.  I love the smell of cloves.  The whole house smelled like Christmas when this was baking in the oven.  But, I think the best part was that it actually tasted like apple pie.  Apple pie in the form of granola!

As all granola is, the recipe was very quick to whip up.  I think left it in the oven a tad bit too long so unfortunately, apple pie granola was a bit more hard compared to apple pie dessert, but it still tasted awesome.
