Why We Love It: This granola isn’t too different from many other granolas out there that we’ve tasted. It’s high in protein and healthy Omega-3 fats due to the pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds, but also has sugar listed as its second ingredient. It’s in line with other granolas in terms of number of carbs per serving. The flavor is good but could benefit from being part of a bigger breakfast dish, like a yogurt parfait, or a fruit cup, since the flavor isn’t too sweet or unique. One thing that made an unexpected difference was the milk carton container, which made it super easy to pour, especially when pouring it over something like fruit or yogurt. It’s also non-GMO verified, which is a nice added benefit. Although this granola is made with ingredients that don’t contain gluten, the product has not been labeled gluten-free due to cross-contamination concerns.
