Feeling the Love

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me tweet the following a few weeks ago:

Yep! They sent me a big box of goodies that included 3 of their 5 different kinds of granola.

Sweet Cranberry Pecan, Apple Walnut Delight & Raisin Almond Crunch.

Let me tell you what I like about this granola:

It’s not overly sweet. I love the flavor combos. It has some clusters but isn’t all big clusters.


Check out these facts from their website.

Doesn’t get much better than that, right?

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been searching for different ways to use these delightful oat clusters. I’ve made granola cookies and granola salmon (using the cranberry pecan flavor)…

I recreated my favorite banana crunch pancakes from First Watch (using raisin almond):

I mixed it into my yogurt (using all three…although raisin almond is my personal fav):

And finally, I made Oatmeal Crunch Muffins (using the apple walnut flavor).

I used this recipe, but had to use a little Greek yogurt because I didn’t have enough applesauce. And instead of the topping, I used the apple walnut granola to add a middle layer and a top layer of crunch!

Do you know what the best part is?

Check out the nutrition facts. These are for the raisin almond flavor:
