|Traditional, Cranberry, Apple Pie, and Cinnamon Crunch PaleoKrunch Grainless Granola; Traditional and Pumpkin Krunch PaleoKrunch Bars|
It's a dense cereal (of course, it's granola!) and it's packed with healthful ingredients and no refined sugar. Depending on how you define veganism (the strictest definition excludes honey, as well, but I know a lot of otherwise-vegans who still eat honey) this granola can fit into a vegan diet as well.
It comes with a cool safety lock, so your granola is really fresh (and you know it's all in there).
And though the individual spicing of the granolas varies, they're all nutritionally very similar.
They're all full of healthy fats and light on the carbs. Carbs are important, especially in my diet, but everyone's diet is different and some people prefer to keep their carbs down (or maybe down at certain times or at certain meals). Steve's Original grainless granola makes it possible to enjoy your granola without the carbs!
But not without the yum factor.
|Apple Pie PaleoKrunch|
I was a bit wary of the small serving sizes (I'm not sure exactly what one looks like, since I don't have a kitchen scale, but there are supposedly five servings in a tub) but the granola is perfectly rich and sweet, so you don't need a huge amount of it to be satisfied. It's also ideal as a topping for oatmeal, if you don not follow a paleo/grain-free diet, or a mix-in with Cheerios/some other plain cereal to jazz things up.
I really liked how the almond and the coconut shared the spotlight as the 'base' of this granola, but didn't overwhelm the other flavors. The cranberry shined through in the cranberry granola, the rustic apple shined through in the apple pie flavor, and the pumpkin and sunflower seeds added a delicious crunch in the original cereal.
The texture of this cereal isn't exactly like regular granola - it's a bit stickier and softer/chewier, but it's still delicious.
Yeah, definitely delicious judging by how fast I went through the tubs (great with yogurt, cacao nibs, and fruit, like above). Yummy!
The Cinnamon Swirl is predominantly coconut-, pumpkin seed-, and walnut-based and oh my dear is it good. If you want a real try, have the Cinnamon Swirl granola on vanilla ice cream with some warmed apple pie filling (I used TJ's).
The stickier, softer/chewier texture of the granola lends itself very well to the granola bars.
