I have always been really picky about granola. It seemed to me that a lot of them are not very flavorful. I have been on the search for a good granola for a long time. I have given an opportunity to do a review for Ola Granola! Let me just start by saying doing this review is the smartest thing I have ever done!
I received three 9oz. bags of Ola hand-baked granola and two 1oz. sample bags. The three flavors I received are Vanilla Almond, Cranberry Orange Pecan and No Nut Vanilla.
I received the samples and had to try them right away! My favorite is the Cranberry Orange Pecan! It has a ton of flavor! My son tried the No Nut Vanilla first and took off with the bag. I had completely forgotten he had it and when I remembered he had eaten half the bag! My daughter likes all of them! It's so nice when I see my kids enjoying a healthy snack!
All three of the flavors are 100% natural! My favorite thing about Ola Granola is that I know every single ingredient in them! I'm not guessing and wondering what certain ingredients are.
Vanilla Almond Granola Ingredients: Whole Grain Oats, Almonds, Pure Maple Syrup, Wheat Bran, Whole Wheat Flour, Non-GMO Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Pure Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Sea Salt!
Cranberry Orange Pecan Granola Ingredients: Whole Grain Oats, Pecans, Pure Maple Syrup, Dried Cranberries (sugar, expeller canola oil) Wheat Bran, Whole Wheat Flour, Orange Juice, Non-GMO Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Pure Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Sea Salt!
No Nut Vanilla Granola Ingredients: Whole Grain Oats, Pure Maple Syrup, Wheat Bran, Whole Wheat Flour, Non-GMO Expeller Pressed Canola Oil, Pure Vanilla Extract, Cinnamon and Sea Salt!
SEE? Isn't that awesome? I can say and I know what each of those ingredients are! I love that they use Expeller Pressed Canola Oil! Since that is the only ingredient in Ola Granola I can see people questioning what it is, let me explain! I love Expeller Pressed Canola Oil because it has been pressed from the seed using a combination of heat and friction. This is a healthier way to extract the Canola oil. Normally chemical solvents are used to extract the oil. Doesn't the Expeller Pressed Canola Oil sound like a better alternative?
I can think of so many ways to use Ola Granola! My kids and I love it on yogurt, eating with a spoon and milk, adding to other cereals, adding into recipes! I like that the 9oz. bags are resealable! The 1oz. bags are perfect for on the run! I am looking forward to trying these recipes Ola has on their website!
