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.

Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Granola - Loaded Fruit and Nut

Where I bought it: Trader Joe’s

How much: $3-4 (I have check next time I’m in there)

This granola uses corn flakes in place of oats from traditional granola. It’s pretty yummy and works really well as a cereal. It’s got all kinds of good bits in it: Sunflower seeds, Flax seeds, Raisins, Sesame seeds, Dried coconut, Walnuts, Hazelnuts, Almonds, Dried cranberries, Pecans, Dried apricots, and Brazil nuts.

Damn that’s a lot of stuff. It all plays together nicely. For breakfast today I had some as cereal with fresh raspberries on top and it turned out great.

I’ve also picked up some Udi’s granola on the last trip to Whole Foods. They take a more traditional approach with certified gluten free oats. We’ll see how it stacks up against the kitchen sink of ingredients that is Trader Joe’s GF Granola.
