I found a delicious granola at Costco that I want to share with you today!
The Costco Inno Foods Grain Free Granola is new at my local Costco and is full of delicious ingredients such as almonds, coconut flakes, maple syrup, cranberry, vanilla and cinnamon. The super seeds are pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The interesting thing I found about this granola is that I totally get hints of an earthy taste when I eat it! It’s not bad at all, just interesting. This granola is super crunchy, slightly sweet with very noticeable cinnamon and vanilla flavoring. There’s large flakes of unsweetened coconut throughout the granola, so if you like coconut you'll like this! This granola tastes amazing on its own or with yogurt and fruit. The thing I like most about the taste of this granola is the different variety of flavors that all compliment each other. When I eat it just plain each bite tastes a little bit different. Some of the flavors do get slightly masked when you combine the granola with fruit or flavored yogurt.
This isn’t cheap granola, the 600 gram bag cost $14.99 Canadian (not on sale). The ingredients in the granola definitely aren’t cheap to start with and because it’s marketed as an organic and gluten free product I feel that’s why the price is slightly higher.
I’m currently eating this granola daily. I bring a little container to work and either snack on it plain or add it to fruit and yogurt. Granola makes a convenient snack or breakfast item. The bag is re-sealable which makes it easier to keep the granola fresh.
A ¾ cup serving of this granola has the same amount of calories and fat as some donuts do (actually). This is no low calorie, low fat option. In a ¾ cup serving there is 280 calories, 23 grams of fat, 11 grams of sugar and eight grams of sugar. However this is a low carbohydrate option! In a ¾ cup serving there is only 18 grams of carbohydrates. The ingredients list is full of lots of natural ingredients but does include cane sugar.
I’m really enjoying this granola and will definitely finish off the bag. I’m not allergic or adverse to grains so will probably go back to buying a cheaper granola with grains such as the Kirkland Signature Granola.
What ingredients would be in your dream granola!?
