Back Roads Granola

by Anne Paddock

After all these years, we are still Crunchy Granola People.

At the southeastern tip of Vermont is a town called Brattleboro where a family-owned bakery of self-described “crunchy granola people” makes some of the most delicious and nutritious granolas on the market.

Using only non-GMO certified organic ingredients, Back Roads Granola is also noteworthy for what they don’t use:  sugar, salt, canola oil, and no wheat products (all the granolas are certified gluten-free). Instead, the company uses Vermont maple syrup and honey to add a slight sweetness to the granola along with a touch of sunflower oil.

Back Roads Granola makes nine varieties of certified gluten-free granola:

Original Granola:  Made with rolled oats, flame raisins (made from large red crunchy seedless grapes), almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, high oleic sunflower oil, honey, Vermont maple syrup, shredded coconut, coconut chips, sesame seeds, and vanilla.
