Welcome to Day #4 of Chocolate and Peanuts Theme Week.
Today's Peanut Butter Chocolate homestyle granola was baked and distributed by Erin Baker's Wholesome Baked Goods (Bellingham, WA).
Aroma and flavor notes for this granola were as expected and included: oats, peanut butter and very faint chocolate notes.
What I liked best about this granola: The baked oat cereal had a hearty, baked crunchy texture without being uncomfortably rough (jagged) on the palette. The peanut butter flavor was authentic and not overwhelming; and the judicious amounts of sea salt and molasses seemed just right.
Lightly sweetened with brown rice syrup, molasses and small chunks of chocolate, these satisfying oats were not overly sugared (thank you). One 1/2 cup serving contained 36 grams of carbohydrate (5 grams were fiber), and 7 grams of protein.
The small chunks of chocolate played a smaller, supporting role; however few people enjoy the amount of chocolate I normally consume (about 1 oz.) at breakfast time.
Ingredients: Whole grain oats, peanut butter, brown rice syrup, chocolate chunks (unsweetened chocolate, sugar, dextrose, soy lecithin, vanilla extract), molasses (sugar, sugarcane molasses), expeller pressed canola oil, oat bran, peanuts, flax seed, sea salt.
Allergen-related information: Contains peanut, soy. Produced in a facility that processes wheat, peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, soy, and dairy.
