Review of Back to Nature Classic Granola

Food Review: Back to Nature Classic Granola

During the weekdays my breakfast routine is pretty standard — yogurt, granola, and fresh fruit. And while granola has achieved the status of being a good-for-you food, most of the store-bought stuff is loaded with hydrogenated oils. That's why I was stoked to find Back to Nature Classic Granola ($5).

I love how simple this granola is — rolled oats that are lightly sweetened with fruit juice — because it gives a basic foundation that I can jazz up. But the biggest plus is that it's made without using any oils. One serving only contains 25 calories of fat, not bad! It's a great way to get fiber into your diet, and it also contains a good amount of protein, iron, and magnesium.

To hear how it tastes


As far as the taste goes, it can't be beat. It's crunchy and toasty, with just the right amount of sweetness, and the nutty, chewy flavor of the oats really come through. Overall the granola has sort of an old-school feel to it, like a simple, classic granola that was made at home by someone's grandmother. Because it's too not clumpy, it's easy to sprinkle over food and also absorbs my yogurt faster. After I get through this bag I'm moving on to the line's other flavors like, Organic Cherry Vanilla and Wild Blueberry Walnut.

I really like the Sweet Home Farm granola. These are the ingredients: Whole Rolled Oats, Milled Cane Sugar, Whole Rolled Wheat, Vegetable Oil (Canola and/or Safflower and/or Sunflower Oil), Coconut, Honey, Almonds, Molasses, Natural Flavor, Salt, Organic Cardamom Seed, Organic Fennel Seed, Organic Fenugreek Seed, Organic Nutmeg. I'd be interested in trying one without any oil, but first I'd like to try making my own.
