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, dyes 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.
So to answer the question, yes, it is healthy. Just don’t eat the whole bag in one sitting.
What makes us different?
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.
Why it’s important to use local products
For two reasons:
- Economic; when using local ingredients produced by independent operations, more tax revenue (73% compared to 43% of a nonlocal operation to be exact) and means for reinvestments stay within the community
- Environmental; the closer the source, the fewer negative environmental externalities are produced by transportation.
