Oh my, do I love this granola!
Made to Crave creates this all natural gluten free granola in four flavors: old fashioned granola, maple pecan, apple cinnamon, and fruit and nut. I sampled their old fashioned granola and maple pecan flavors with fantastic results.
This granola has a certified gluten free oats and crisped brown rice base accented by high quality ingredients like pecans, walnuts, coconut and various fruits. This granola is sweeter than most I have tasted; I would actually enjoy it as a snack verses a breakfast food to start my day since I prefer less sweet foods in the mornings. The texture of Made to Crave granola reminds me of traditional granola, some clumps and nuggets nestled in the loose oats and other ingredients.
Maple Pecan Granola: This was my favorite of the two I tried. It was sweet, crunchy and peppered with large pecans and a nice maple flavor that was just perfect. YUM! This would be great as a cereal or a snack. Rating: 5 stars
Ingredients: Certified Gluten Free Oats, Pecans, Maple Syrup, Brown Sugar, Canola Oil, Organic Crispy Brown Rice (Organic Brown Rice, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Sea Salt), Salt, Vanilla Extract
Old Fashioned Granola: This is your simple, basic granola that would be great for a number of purposes- cereal for breakfast, toppings for granola or ice cream, or as a snack fresh from the bag. The flavor is sweet and pure, however my husband and I noticed a slight aftertaste that we couldn’t pinpoint the source of – maybe the sea salt? Anyway, I quite enjoyed the hint of cinnamon added to this as well. Rating: 4 1/2 stars
Ingredients: Gluten Free Oats, Honey,Brown Sugar, Canola Oil, Organic Crispy Brown Rice (Organic Brown Rice, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Sea Salt), Salt, Cinnamon, Vanilla Extract
