We love to try new foods. Some are great. Some don’t measure up and some become staples in our kitchen. See what you think.

GrandyOats based in a solar-powered facility in Hiram, Maine has extended its granola line to include Coconola a grain-free, coconut-based granola. Coconola is NonGMO Certified, USDA Certified Organic, Certified Gluten-Free, Certified Paleo Friendly and kosher certified (KVH).

Coconola comes in 4 varieties. We tasted three.

Chocolate Chunk Coconut Granola has coconut, pecans, cashews, seeds and dark chocolate. One serving, ¼ cup (approximately 1 ounce), has 170 calories, 14 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein, 11 grams of carb (2 grams fiber and 6 grams added sugar), 10 milligrams of sodium and 160 milligrams of potassium.

Coffee Crunch Coconut Granola has a mild coffee flavor with coconut, pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, seeds and ground Fair Trade coffee. One serving, ¼ cup (approximately 1 ounce), has 13 milligrams of caffeine, 180 calories, 15 grams of fat, 5 grams of protein, 10 grams of carb (3 grams fiber and 4 grams added sugar), 30 milligrams of sodium and 2000 milligrams of potassium.

Original Coconut Granola has coconut, pecans, cashews and seeds. One serving, ¼ cup (approximately 1 ounce), has 150 calories, 12 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein, 8 grams of carb (2 grams fiber and 4 grams added sugar), no sodium and 142 milligrams of potassium. This one was our favorite.

Though granola is typically defined as a cereal, the owners of GrandyOats consider themselves Real Granolas, a group of people committed to living a healthy, planet-conscious lifestyle. They pride themselves on being an active employer in rural Maine.
