"GrandyOats makes the most delicious granola around. Eat it alone, with milk, in a yogurt parfait or on your favorite cereal, you'll enjoy the fresh baked organic granola, delivered right to your door!"

We love the variety of flavors GrandyOats has and that the packaged granola comes in a BPA-free plastic, reusable, dishwasher-safe, and environmentally friendly plastic container. 
Classic Granola is their most popular item and contains ingredients like oats, honey, seeds, and nuts. This granola melds a diverse arravy of flavors into a delicious, crunchy mix. Oats are the primary ingredient, yet you can also distinctly taste the whole seeds (pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame) along with the occasional crunchy bite of cashew pieces. The inclusion of wheat germ, and brand are in the background, while hints of vanilla helps mellow these ingredients with its sweetness. Great for snacking and cereal! It is low in sugar, only 6 grams per serving and has enough sweetness to satisfy a mild morning sugar craving. It is relatively high in protein, low in sugar, and a good blend of unsaturated fats. 
Low Fat Cranberry Chew Granola is made with 100% organic grains, is oil free, contains only 1 gram of fat, no saturated fats and is sweetened with wildflower honey and orange juice. This makes a great granola and has all the flavor and crunch you could want. The cranberries are very pump and chewy and this granola is fantastic with milk, yogurt, fruit, or on its own as a snack. 
Mainly Maple Granola consists mainly of oats, sunflower seeds, hazelnuts and walnuts. It is flavored with maple syrup and is a tasty granola with great texture. 
Goji Agave Granola has 27 grams of whole grains per serving and is sweetened with low-glycemic agave nectar and blueberry juice. It also contains goji berries, cranberries, jumbo raisins, oats, sunflower seeds, oat bran, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, unsweetened coconut, vanilla and sea salt. 
Swiss Style Muesli is loaded with whole grains, roasted nuts, and chunks of fruit. We love this granola, it is clean and tasty. The quality is great and there is a nice consistency.
We enjoy these products and think you will too! 
Sarah Velasco: Are there common misconceptions about granola?
GrandyOats: Many people think oh Granola is fatty. I like to say how many people do you know that eat granola each morning that are overweight? Not many! Our product is full of real, clean, food. Ingredients that nourish and sustain the body, not empty calories. It is very rare to have a product like ours in the mainstream market that is still so minimally processed; it's processed foods that have a lot of extraneous ingredients that are unhealthy. Often the fats that are in Granola are healthy. The fat in our granola only comes from nuts, seeds and plant based oils. We are more concerned if it is too sugary, most of our competition granola tastes like a broken up cookie and that is really the thing that I worry about in the American diet, the over processing. Many dietitians are currently saying sugar is much worse then fat.
