Get ready to enjoy some of the best granola on the planet. Made with all natural, organic and gluten-free ingredients, including: quinoa, an ancient grain considered a complete protein; amaranth, high in b vitamins; chia seeds- providing excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids, fiber and antioxidants; and raw virgin coconut oil containing medium-chain fatty acids that get used as energy rather than stored as fat.
I received a pouch of this granola in my January Box from Knoshy.
Because I ate this granola as a breakfast cereal with milk, I decided that a breakfast tea was the way to go! Recently, I discovered Glen Arbor Breakfast Tea from Whispering Pines Tea Company, and it’s a great breakfast tea. Very woodsy and rustic, a perfect complement to a granola cereal!
What I Think:
This just may be the best granola I’ve ever tasted. I was surprised with the first taste, because while it LOOKS like just about every other granola out there, the flavor is much better.
The cinnamon is well-defined. The oats have been baked to a nice crispy texture. A tasty nutty flavor from the pecans, and just enough plump, juicy flavor from the cranberry to give it contrast.
My one complaint: I would like a little more cranberry in this. That’s something that’s easily remedied by adding a handful of Craisins to the bowl, and even though I’d argue that the right amount of cranberries should be in the granola already, the flavor of the granola makes it worth it to me to open my package of dried cranberries and add a few to the bowl.
My Final Thoughts:
I really liked this. It was a delicious granola, and I’m going to be picking up more from Chuck’s Produce, as I’ve noticed this on the shelves the last time I was there. I’m definitely going to be wanting more!
