Ever since I stopped eating those kids’ sugar bomb cereals oh, about two years ago (kidding), I’ve never tried a healthy cereal or granola that would interest me for more than the length of time it took to finish the box. Some were too sweet, some were too bland, none were juuust right. For a while I’d spice up, so to speak, Special K with nuts and fruit, but for the past few years I’d resigned myself to Quaker Oats, Honey & Raisins granola. But still, I sometimes don’t like that coconutty taste and I always pick out and throw away those little tar balls they call raisins.
Now I’ve found my favorite: Nature’s Path Pumpkin FlaxPlus Granola at Costco. It’s just slightly sweet, and the pumpkin and flax seeds really jazz up the flavor. It flows freely into my bowl, not all clumped together like some granola, so I know I won’t be crunch-crunch-crunching my way through breakfast, giving myself a masticatory workout in the process.
Here are the ingredients: Organic rolled oats, organic evaporated cane juice, organic soy oil, organic brown rice flour, organic pumpkin seeds, organic flaxseeds, organic oat syrup solids, sea salt, organic molasses, rice bran extract, organic cinnamon.
