Nature's Hand Granola

My family loves granola. My favorite way to eat it is in yogurt ! When I had the opportunity to try Nature's Hand Granola, I couldn't resist !

I received six different flavors to review ; Original Vanilla Almond, Cranberry Apricot, Wild Blueberry , Cinnamon Apple , Raisin Hazelnut and Coconut Cashew. They are all very good , but if I had to pick a favorite it would be the Vanilla Almond. It seem like each of my family members liked a different flavor which worked out great ! My 2 yr old loved the Cinnamon Apple with yogurt or even plan. My 14 yr old like the Raisin Hazelnut. Besides eating it on yogurt it is also yummy on plain vanilla ice cream :)

About Nature's Hand :
It took on many different forms and flavors in the decades that followed, and really blossomed in the 1960’s when the addition of fruits and nuts made it a delicious and nutritious way to snack.
The first batch of Nature’s Hand was baked in 1971 using a homemade recipe carefully crafted by German-born immigrants in Burnsville, Minnesota. Their sweet, hearty granola was a hit – fast becoming a favorite of friends and family. So they decided to share their homemade recipe with the public and Nature’s Hand Granola was born.
The first bags of Nature’s Hand Granola weren’t easy to find, carried exclusively by specialty grocers and health food retailers. But word traveled fast, and as people discovered its many uses from baking to snacking to cereal mixer, Nature’s Hand Granola started popping up on more and more shelves across the upper Midwest…and beyond.
Today, we still use the same quality ingredients, the same popular recipe, and the same oven-baked process people have been enjoying since 1971. We’ve even added a few new flavors because different people have different tastes.
Nature’s Hand is a great-tasting granola the whole family can love – however you choose to love it – and it’s made right here in the U.S.A.

Here is a little info some of the flavors :

Coconut Cashew : roasted oats and wheat mingling with almonds, cashews, and shredded coconut, all delicately sweetened by caramelized brown sugar and honey.

Cranberry Apricot: roasted oats and wheat mingling with sun-ripened cranberries and apricot, all delicately sweetened by caramelized brown sugar and honey.

Original Recipe: roasted oats and wheat mingling with hearty almonds and sunflower seeds, all delicately sweetened by caramelized brown sugar and honey.

Raisin Hazelnut: roasted oats and wheat mingling with plump raisins and rich hazelnuts, all delicately sweetened by caramelized brown sugar and honey.

Here is a yummy recipe on the Nature's Hand website that I plan on trying ! Sounds yummy !
