Today was Day #7 of Chocolate and Cranberry Theme Week.

I was surprised to find that so many gluten-free chocolate and cranberry items I found in stores also involved oats, or granola. Today was another oat-filled day.

My bowl of Oat Clusters toasted granola I enjoyed this morning was certainly the "smartest," toastiest and the crunchiest I've enjoyed this week. The founders of Love Grown Foods (Denver, CO), Alex and Maddy, are committed to creating "delicious and nutritious" foods and they offer several types of oatmeal and oat cereal.

If today's bowl of gluten-free, GMO-free cocoa goodness + sweet cranberry pecan clusters were any sharper I would've felt compelled to administer an IQ test.

The sweetness level was just about right for me. The oat clusters were very lightly sweetened with agave syrup and a bit of honey. The chocolate chips added little bursts of chocolate sweetness. I wasn't able to pick out cranberry or pecan flavors in the sweet cranberry pecan clusters I'd mixed in the same bowl, but that was OK. Both flavors tasted fresh and crunchy.
