If you like to cook from scratch or bake, you should know Bob’s Red Mill. I have used them in the past for “odds and ins” like unsweetened coconut, rice flour, corn meal, wheat germ, and steal cut oats. If you’re a gluten-free home you should know Bob’s Red Mill too! If I’m introducing you to Bob’s Red Mill, your life is now changed for the better and you’re welcome!
I’m lucky that Bob’s Red Mill contacted Louise and that I was given their new granola products to review. I’m already a fan, as you can tell, but to be honest about their granola … TASTY! I was given their natural, honey oat, cinnamon raisin, and apple blueberry granola products. You know from other posts that my husband and I love to eat granola in yogurt. My kids haven’t been into it until recently and my picky-eating 4YO even loves Bob’s Red Mill granola in his yogurt now! This makes a great snack or addition to breakfast (or second breakfast for those of you with hobbits for children, like mine).
We have also used Bob’s Red Mill granola in homemade trail mix. Take a flavor you know your family will enjoy and add dried fruit, natural candy pieces, nut and seeds, and other bit-sized house favorites. This makes a great daily snack and travels well for afterschool snacks before extracurricular activities. Using Bob’s Red Mill products, you know you’re providing your child with a high quality, filling, nutritious snack. If fact, Bob’s Red Mill granola has an average of more than 27 grams of whole grains, 3 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of protein per serving.

Locate the Bob’s Red Mill products in your local grocery store. My favorite local store, TOP Food, offers a large selection of their products in the baking isle. Their products come in plastic bags and are stood together in cardboard bases. (By the way, this bag only system uses less than other brands which use the bag-inside-box method.) When looking for Bob’s Red Mill granola, the bag size is 12-ounces for about $3.89 MSRP.
Locate Bob’s Red Mill in your area with their store locator. If you can’t fine Bob’s Red Mill in your favorite grocery store, request it; stores love to know what you want to purchase!
