Granola is one of my favorite cereal and snacks. The problem is more of the granola’s are filled with more grain, sugar and fillers that are not healthy for us. The KitchenFix has came up with Grain Free Granola that eliminates all those unhealthy ingredients. Best of all it came in two flavors I really liked, but they have even more flavors to choose from.
The Grain Free Granola called Honey Pecan tastes similar to pecan pie. It is not overly sweet like a pecan pie, but has that nutty goodness. All of the ingredients are natural right down to the sugars. It is easy to taste a hint of maple syrup and honey, but again not too sweet at all. Also, you can pick up a subtle hint of cinnamon too. This granola does contain Pecans while the original mix does not. Another part of this mix I liked was the combination of Sunflower seeds, Cashews, Coconut oil, Flax seeds, Vanilla extract and hint of sea salt. Also, all these ingredients offer that sweet taste without the guilt while being packed with Paleo power!
The Original mix of Grain Free Granola gets its sweetness from the plump raisins and hint of maple syrup. Also, the sweet taste of that the coconut oil brings out in the nuts and seeds nutty goodness. A hint of sea salt also enhances the flavors to make them all blend while standing alone. Also, this mix has Walnuts were the honey pecan flavor does not. What makes this mix standout to me is the Sunflower and pumpkin seeds, raisins, Vanilla extract and the Flax seeds as well as the nuts and sweeteners. All pure ingredients that are packed with Paleo power!
Overall, I really like the flavors that each of the Grain Free Granola offered. They are full of tastes, crunch and it does not get soggy when adding milk. These granola’s can be used on top of yogurt, ice cream, salads, puddings, out of the bag or as a breakfast cereal. I tried it on yogurt it was fantastic. Also, with milk as a small snack this granola did not get soggy.
Since this granola is grain free you will not have the big pieces of granola that you will find in other granola’s. Calorie wise this is comparable if not slightly higher, but remember the calories are coming from high protein sources not sugars. All of the ingredients have a NON GMO certification and are gluten free. The granola comes in a resealable bag and contains about 10 ounces in each bag. The serving size states about 10 per bag at 180 calories for the pecan honey and 170 calories for the original mix.
I really like the tastes and crunch of each of the granola’s and would purchase them again. These two granola will go a long way if using on yogurt, ice cream or salads. However, as a cereal this would not allow what most people are using to eating for breakfast of snack. But if you are like me I like adding it to my steel oats for that extra crunch so it will go a long way.
