Ola Granola – A Healthy Treat and Cranberry Orange Pecan Scones Recipe – Coupon Code Included!
I honestly can say that I love granola. I love granola plain, as cereal, in yogurt, and just recently I learned how to cook some new recipes using granola! I know that it’s possible to make your own granola at home, and someday I might try it. Until then, I like to look for the lower sugar, super natural ingredient, store bought granola. Good news for me is that there is some AWESOME granola out there like Ola 100% Natural Granola. When I got an email with the chance to try some samples of granola, I was actually pretty excited!
I absolutely love 3 things about Ola Granola. They started out as just a mom making granola blends as gifts to share with friends. Soon, she realized she had something great on her hands and started making Ola! a reality. I also love that their ingredients are completely natural. With so many products with so many ingredients out there, it’s nice to have a brand stick to things I can pronounce! Last but certainly not least, I absolutely LOVE that you can order Ola! Granola online. I used their store search tool on their website and unfortunately, no one near me carries it. That doesn’t mean I won’t be able to get it though! With online ordering available, anybody can have some Ola! Granola. They’ve even sent us a coupon code to share with you for free shipping! Just add the coupon code MSS2013 and your delicious order will come without shipping charges.
So what can you do with granola? There are some GREAT ideas on the Ola! website. I found a recipe for scones that I REALLY want to try. I wanted to make sure I shared it with you! You’ll also have to check out my recipe for Cinnamon Breakfast Cookies that I made with Ola! Granola. They were VERY tasty.

Refrigerate for at least two hours or overnight. Then, cut each disk into four or eight triangles, separate the triangles on the parchment paper so they cook evenly.
