For those of us who have cravings on the sweet side in the morning, but don’t want to start our day off with added sugars or heavy grains, there is Wildway Grain-Free Granola.
Fruit is the first ingredient (and in one case the second, too) in Wildway Grain-Free Granola, making for a naturally sweet energizer that has a gentle chewy bite against a very hearty backdrop of nuts, seeds and spices. Overall, I must admit, it’s even heftier than your average granola – just 1/2 cup packs in a wallop of nutrients. Yes, it’s relatively high in calories, nutty fats, and fruit sugars – but it’s also got a good dose of plant-based protein, making this a pretty well-rounded kick-start for an on-the-go day or a good snack to reach for during that afternoon hunger slump.
At Expo West earlier this year, I sampled the Banana Nut, which remains my favorite flavor. Something about those wonderful dried, tender bites just won me over. But they sent me home with a sample bag of the Coconut Cashew (pictured here) and it was still quite a delicious earthy combination of dates, walnuts, and seeds, with the coconut and cashews added more for flavor than as the base. Wildway Grain-Free Granola also comes in Apple Spice and Gingerbread (ooh, I want to try this!), please do comment below if you have tried these flavors or any of the Wildway Grain-Free Granola goodness – myself and other readers would love to hear your take!
