Granola Goodness


I know I shouldn’t snack, but I do.  I try to be good.  With little temptation at work, I’m usually  a little better at controlling my impulse to munch.  But when I get home, look out.  I walk in the door and hit the cupboard. I’ve notice my son is becoming a snacker too. He’s a constant mooch.  If anyone is eating, he needs to be eating too.  And I admit this is a bad habit for him to inherit. 

Recently we’ve had a chance to sample Nature’s Hand Granola.  I know what you’re thinking—granola is typically high in sugar and preservatives.  If it's not high in sugar, it's typically low in taste, so why bother. Not true with Nature’s Hand—just 6 grams per serving from brown sugar and honey.  I also like that all the ingredients are 100% natural.  There are no artificial preservatives, colors or flavor.  Full of whole grain oats and wheat, as well as sunflower seeds, Nature’s Hand Granola packs a lot of nutritious fiber in a small hand full.  

Nature’s Hand also offers 6 great flavor.  We thoroughly enjoyed the Wild Blueberry and the Apple and Cinnamon varieties.  You might also like the Maple Pecan, Raisin Hazelnut, French Vanilla Almond, or Cranberry Delight varieties.

While the granola tastes amazing by itself, we found it makes a great addition to yogurt in the morning.  It’s been really rainy, cold and damp here.  I baked up some apples last night, just to heat up the house.  You already know my obsession with the bushel of apples sitting in our basement.  Topping the warm baked apples was like eating apple crisp without any of the work.  Just delicious and simple.
