Bakery on Main Granola Review & Giveaway

I like taking snacks with me when I go out for a couple of hours or more.  I often take a small container of mixed nuts, but it’s always nice to change it up.  Bakery on Main recently sent me each of their gluten-free products to review.  I’m so glad they did.  I love this stuff!

First is the question of whether their products are safe to consume.  Here is the response I received from their representative:
“We take every precaution possible to be sure our products are safe for people with Celiac disease.  Bakery On Main’s manufacturing plant is certified for gluten free production by the Gluten Free Certification Organization which means they visit our plant and audit us to be sure our products are gluten free.  Please refer to their web site at www.gfco.org for their procedure and standards.”
You can learn more from their “About Us” page.  In addition, their products contain no trans fats, refined sugar, or dairy.  Many contain nuts, but not all of them.  Bakery on Main makes three types of granola products with variety within each type.

1.  Granola Bars
The thing I like about granola bars is that they are great for taking along with me when I go out.  Since they are individually wrapped, I can throw one in my purse and have a healthy tasty snack when I need it.

These bars are chewy, not the dry hard type.  They are not overly chewy, though, which is one thing I never liked about granola.  I liked all three varieties, but just so you know the peanut butter is not a strong flavor.

2.  Granola
Apple Raisin WalnutRainforest Granola
Overall, this was my favorite type of product.  It is a little different than most traditional granola, but that’s why I like it.  So many granolas take so much chewing that my jaw begins to hurt.  This granola contains small pieces, is fruity and crunchy.  All the flavors are great, but I particularly like Rainforest which contains bananas, Brazil nuts and coconut.

This granola is great by itself for breakfast, or a snack, but is also a perfect yogurt or ice cream topping.

3.  Fiber Power Granola

This is chunkier granola and includes certified gluten-oats.  The great thing about this is, of course, the fiber it contains—9 grams per serving.  For that reason it makes a terrific breakfast choice. 

If you are looking for ways to get extra fiber in your diet, here’s a great way to do it.

I have only tried the peanut butter chocolate chip bar and I thought it was amazing. It was the generous amount of chocolate chips that got me. I didn't even know there was peanut butter in it until I read the label.
