Crunchy Like Granola
Granola has come a long way since its sandal-wearing, long-haired, pot-puffing days. Just look at some of today’s brands.
Over in Quebec, twin sisters Geneviève and Valérie Gagnon are making-over granola one rolled oat at a time. La Fourmi Bionique uses imaginative recipes, fresh, modern packaging and catchy text to boot.
Most people pair their granola with yogurt or milk, but this stuff is so good, we’re noshing handfuls straight from the bag. Try the granola bars (caramelized apple and pecans) and snack packs (berries, almonds and dark chocolate), too.
So good, you’ll want to hug a tree. —AT
