I squealed with excitement when I took these beauties out of their box last week…
I squealed again, (and maybe even a few more times after that) when I looked at the different varieties I got as well as when I saw the nutrition facts on these babies. Check out these stats!

YES PLEASE! This is real spankin’ food, people – GOOD real spankin’ food at that! It excites me even more when good food is all natural and real.
When I first got these fantastic bags of Love Grown Foods granola to try, I had a hard time choosing which to open first. I didn’t want to open all three bags with the fear that I wouldn’t finish them all in time (umm, I’m now realizing that’s not possible as I’m plowing through the bags).
First, I tried the Sweet Cranberry Pecan which initially drew me in because of the pecans – love those things. It was perfection. Seriously. No joke. The combination of subtly sweet oats with the tartness of dried cranberries and the crunch of pecans made a little party in my mouth.

I REALLY wanted to try the others. I decided we’d only open TWO bags and save the other until we finished at least one of the first bags off. My husband thought the Apple Walnut Delight sounded the next best, so we opened it up. We loved it. My favorite was still the Sweet Cranberry Pecan simply because I’m more of a pecan fan than a walnut fan. Regardless, the Apple Walnut Delight was fantastic.
10 minutes later…
I couldn’t stand letting the Raisin Almond Crunch granola feel left out – it definitely needed some attention too. So what did I do? I ripped open that bag too and don’t regret it one bit. This one was a close call for my favorite, most likely because of the almonds – love those little babies too.
Oh, and look what else I got? These little on-the-go packages to put in your purse or lunch. They’re perfect for taking in your lunch to top yogurt or just eat by itself, of course. Cute little guys, right?
I’ve been enjoying my granola all sorts of different ways. You can totally get creative with this stuff!
I’ve had it on my sweet potato…
I’ve had it in my oatmeal (specifically this Zuchinni Bread Oatmeal)…
I’ve had it in my yogurt (yes, it’s in a mug – that’s how I do!)…
I also want to try it in my ice cream, but I haven’t done that yet. Remember, I’m trying to tone it down on the stuff a bit?
And I most definitely eat it out of the bag by the handfuls on frequent occasions.
I would highly recommend you get to Love Grown Foods right this instant or search for this stuff at your local health food store. You won’t be sad you did. In fact, you’ll be squealing with excitement when you do.
