Mix My Granola


Recently, I've had a renewed appreciation for granola. For years, I was not a fan of sweet breakfast foods, and granola always tasted too sweet for me in the morning. But, for whatever reason, I decided to give it another try a couple months ago and find that I actually enjoy it now. (They say your taste buds change every 7 years, so perhaps that explains it!)

So I was seriously excited to hear about Mix My Granola, a company that allows you to customize your own granola mix then ships it to you! It's quite easy. You pick one of the four granola bases (organic, low-fat, French vanilla, or muesli), and then personalize your mix by choosing from a wide variety of dried fruit, nuts, and "extras" like chocolate morsels or even wasabi peas!

With so many choices, it's hard to decide, but I think my ideal mix would be organic granola with almonds, dried apricots, and choco espresso beans for an added kick.

What would you pick? And, has anyone tried this before? If so, I would love to hear your thoughts!

that sounds delicious. i'll have to look into it.
I'm a nanny and Olivia (4 y/o) and I like to make our own "granola" mush concoction. Basically it's oats, almonds (or whatever nuts you want), craisins, etc. Then you add peanut butter and mix it all together. Serve it in a mug or bowl and put some vanilla yogurt on top or plain with some honey for flavor. It's so good. Come to think of it, it really has no granola in it whatsoever. Haha. Just thought I'd share!

mmm, choosing your own granola combo is a great thing. i'd probably end up trying all options eventually but what jumps out at me from first sight is muesli, dried goji berries, dried blackberries, pistachios, flax, amaranth, and chocolate mini morsels. helluva combination don't you think?! :)

Sarah, thanks for the tip. That sounds yummy! I'm a sucker for anything with peanut butter.

Melita, I like your combination! I've started eating goji berries recently after learning about the health benefits. They are a great addition to granola or oatmeal or yogurt. By the way, the clock on my computer is messed up, so I'm not really posting comments in the middle of the night! :-)
