Pineapple Oatbran Granola


Our natural food loving reviewer Sarena, jumped on the opportunity to test a new grain-free granola since her husband was recently diagnosed with Celiac. But, the concept of absolutely no grains admittedly caught her a bit off guard …

When I first saw JK Gourmet 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 was very pleased with the list of ingredients [Sunflower seeds, raisins, unsweetened coconut, walnuts, almonds, honey, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds] and the fact that there was no added fat!

Sarena’s household can tolerate certified gluten-free oats, so she opted to put the grain back in this pineapple granola by using it as a topper for a quick bowl of oatbran. She added pineapple to meld with the toasted coconut in the JK Granola for a delicious blend … “I really liked the mixture of nuts and dried fruits in the Original variety, and the toasted coconut was a perfect compliment; it added such depth to the flavor. I had to stop myself from eating it … I kept adding more and more to my bowl of oats!”
