The best granola you’ll ever taste – Bingo Granola!

June 10th, 2009 · No Comments · Uncategorized

Bingo Granola!  Yes indeed, that is the name!  It’s made in Brattleboro, Vermont and I buy it at Greenfield’s Farmer’s Market on Saturday mornings.   I’ve just finished the bottom of my second bag.  I often eat it with a little maple syrup (not really necessary – just to please my sweet tooth) and on top of my own homemade yogurt.  But I’ve been known to steal into the kitchen and pour a handful to eat plain as well.

As I recall there were three flavors that I tasted at the market, but my favorite just has Bingo Granola as its title.  I talked a bit with the owner and she’s done her research into how it meets many people’s eating requirements.  She’ s very savvy.  I was drawn to it because my day is good when I start with as much protein as possible.  A 1/3 cup serving of this granola has 8 grams – yes – 8 grams of protein.  Add that to my yogurt and I’m a happy protein eater in the mornings.  The owner/creator did tell me that the fat content is “scary” to some folks — that 1/3 cup has 9 grams of fat (no trans fat).  But I adhere to the belief that we need a bit of fat and I have a diet not high in fat otherwise (I eat mostly olive oil and very little butter, lean meat when I do eat meat, etc).

The bag does list a website:, but it’s a holding site and so the company may still be building its web access.  So for now, you’ll have to email the owner (also on the package  – if you want to procure yourself some and don’t live near Brattleboro VT).

I’m a adolescent of the 60s.  My first years of marriage were part of the first “whole earth” eat good, grow your own California days.  I’ve made different types of granola, tried many kinds bagged and sold in bulk.  This is the best – bar none!  Here’s the ingredients of my favorite the company sells:  (organic by the way) oats, raisins, almonds (I love this because you’ll find whole almonds as well as chopped and slivered), sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, coconut flakes (and I don’t favor coconut usually), golden flax, soy oil, maple syrup (see told you I really didn’t need this extra!), honey, apple cider, lemon juice and vanilla extract.

Have I convinced you it’s amazing yet?  Try to get your hands on a bag and let me know!   (By the way, I just bought a bag to have as a snack on the plane to CA tomorrow.)
