Udi’s Gluten Free Original Granola
Where I bought it: Whole Foods
How much: $5.99
Udi’s is probably the most authentic granola simply because they use actual oats. These oats are certified gluten free.
There is some controversy out there if oats are of concern for celiacs. Kinnikinnick chooses not to use oats in their products as explained here. From my circle of people with gluten intolerance (some celiac) it’s a mixed bag. Most seem to be ok with oats, but a couple are not. Be aware.
Back to the product at hand. Udi’s granola is great. It’s just a great classic granola. They throw in some dried fruit and it makes a good cereal. But, when compared to Trader Joe’s GF Granola I think it’s the lesser product. Trader Joe’s granola has a unique blend of whole ton of crap thrown in and that gives it such a great flavor. Hands down winner for breakfast cereal choice.
If you’re a die hard classic granola fan stick with Udi’s. If you’re looking for something a little different with lots of different flavors mixing together, go with Joe’s.
