I’m never one to just stand up and tell you all about health food and the benefits and how it makes you skinny or whatever. What I will tell you is what I know about any gluten-free food that comes my way. Good or bad, so where does gluten-free granola stand? Is it a health food? Is it good for you? What can I put it on? Where can I get it?
GRANOLA GRANOLA GRANOLA!!
I don’t usually eat any kind of granola, even before I was diagnosed with celiac disease and need to be 100% gluten-free, so most of those kinds of questions were WAY out of my league. Questions that were nowhere near my wheel house, only, today, for the first time ever, I will tell you all about something that was brought to my attention. Kahn’s Kitchen and their gluten-free Granola’s Finest (on a side note, writing this gluten-free food review while listening to the Buffy musical episode soundtrack really enhances my ability to creatively review this product).
Raisin, Crunchy, Original and Cinnamon Raisin are the gluten-free flavours that were delivered to my front door, and after one bite of the Cinnamon Raisin, there was no turning back. Each handful of the granola was like a health food store party in my mouth. The Cinnamon was the DJ and the raisins where the guys wandering around with squirt-guns filled with tequila. The kind of party I want to attend. Every. Single. Day. Hands down. I was told you can put granola in salads and in pancakes and in cereal and in pretty much any food you could think of, and there are two things I absolutely hate in my food: nuts and raisins (the only reason they should ever be together is in trail mix). I can can guarantee I will only eat Kahn’s Kitchen granola on it’s own, right out of the bag, funnelled into my mouth, like I’m downing a beer.
If there is anything you should ever know about me is that I love bacon, pancakes, beer, maple syrup and cinnamon. I’m easily swayed by either of those, I can only assume that Kahn’s Kitchen knew this when they sent me the cinnamon flavour. I can assure you that this isn’t the case. While I LOVED the cinnamon flavour, the remaining bags of Granola’s Greatest were all in fact just as tasty. All flavours had the awesome combination of chewy and crispy. Everything I think granola should be, combined with taste.
I did realize something:
On the back on the Kahn’s Kitchen Granola’s Finest bag there was a little disclaimer that said ‘lasts longer if refrigerated’. Which of course makes sense for a lot of things, especially a product like this without any preservatives. I think this granola actually tastes better cold. Not just refrigerated to preserve its freshness, like, pull it out of the fridge and eat it like Cookie Monster. I live just outside Toronto, Canada and the box of goodies sat in the freezing cold before I came home. Of course as soon as I got the box inside to eat, the product was cold. Then later, it warmed up and, not as good.
In conclusion: Kahn’s Kitchen and their gluten-free, grain free and soy free Granola’s Finest is an amazing tasting product. If you want to find out about them and get your mitts on some just click HERE to go to their website (plus Kahn is a badass name. I got stuck with Jordan. Thanks mom). It’s days like this when I am happy I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Without it, I never would have never been able to try this gluten-free gem (thanks again mom for the celiac disease). The Cinnamon Raisin is super duper rad and I am sad that I ate the whole bag in less that 12 hours. You need to give Kahn’s Kitchen a shot.
