Nuts About Granola {Review}



New logoI really love just about all kinds of granola. I really like it on top of vanilla yogurt with  raspberries for breakfast but it’s also the kind of snack that I don’t mind eating on the go. I love that it’s filling and low in calories but packed with lots of good stuff. I feel good eating it and knowing there’s not a bunch of added junk like regular “snack” type food would include.

Plain JaneI had the opportunity recently to try the Nuts About Granola product Plain Jane Peanut Butter Granola. The name in and of itself was enticing to me because I love peanut butter just as much as I love granola. In fact I’ll eat peanut butter by the spoonful so the strong taste of peanut butter made the granola just oh so much more yummier! I definitely like my granola to have a little crunch to it but like it soft too. Nuts About Granola's product was the perfect combination of chewy and crunchy. The only downside is that the bag was way too small – I mean yes it’s big enough for a good serving or snack size bag of granola but it was so good that now I want more! I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to get online and order some of their granola in the 12oz or even 5lb bags.

Why eat Nuts About Granola?

Like anything in life: all things in moderation. Our granola is made from only all-natural and organic ingredients. We believe in the whole foods diet: consuming only foods in their natural form without any artificial chemicals, dies or preservatives.

Yes, it contains sugar (minimally processed). Yes, it contains fat (unsaturated, good fats) and it also contains whole grains, fiber and protein to make a well balanced, great tasting product you can feel good about eating. It satisfies even the sweetest sweet tooth without breaking the caloric bank.

As much as we would love it if you consumed a bag of granola in one sitting (and had to buy another one…), it is truly meant to be enjoyed, savored and eaten in smaller portions. One serving (only 100-130 calories) is a perfect addition to your yogurt, oatmeal, ice cream or cereal. It adds crunch, full bodied flavor and just the right amount of fiber and protein to keep you fuller longer.

Nuts About Granola is made locally, sourced locally and traded locally. We believe strongly in the power of a thriving local community, one in which values where their food comes from and who makes it. Therefore, we hand make our granola is small batches using only all-natural and organic ingredients.

Be sure to check out Nuts About Granola on their Website, Facebook and Twitter.

Be sure to check out their gifts section. They have a great package of  2oz bags perfect for stocking stuffers and they have really pretty gift jars along with some other great items.
