Summary:

Though this oat-free blend didn't win us over as a stand alone breakfast granola, it's a tasty, out of hand snack that also makes a great healthy topping. The company is based in Canada, but they do sell many of their paleo products, like this granola, in the U.S., too.

When I first saw JK Gourmet Grain-Free Granola, I was wondering where the oats were.

I am kind of a purest in the way of granola, so I thought it was strange for this to be called granola. I know they are marketing this for people with celiac, but I would personally call this a trail mix. Either way, it is delicious! I tried the Nuts & Raisins Original and was very pleased with the ingredients and the fact that there was no added fat!

JK Gourmet Grain-Free Granola Original Ingredients: Sunflower seeds, raisins, unsweetened coconut, walnuts, almonds, honey, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds.

I really liked the balance of nuts and dried fruits, and the toasted coconut was a perfect compliment. It added such amazing depth to the flavor. I seriously had to stop myself from devouring the whole bag. I kept adding more and more to my bowl of oats!

The honey was used lightly, so that I could really taste the ingredients and not the added sugar. My husband has already asked me to make his favorite gluten-free oatmeal cookies with this granola. It’s clearly winner in our household!

Though I only sampled the Original variety, JK Gourmet Grain-Free Granola is now available several snackable flavors. And although I liked it best as an oatmeal topper, I think it’s also perfect for a straight up snack-on-the-go during those busy mornings or when heading out on a hike!
