Bakery On Main Review and Giveaway...

We recently had the chance to review some tasty gluten-free granola treats from Bakery On Main:)


About Bakery On Main:
"At Bakery On Main, we're all about better health and happy tastebuds living together in harmony. We hope you love our premium gluten free granola products as much as we love creating them for you.
Our Story-
It all started in the small bakery of a natural foods market on Main Street in Glastonbury, Connecticut. Founder Michael Smulders listened to his Celiac customers complain about the taste of many of the gluten free options available to them. He thought that no one should have to suffer because of a food allergy or other special dietary need, and made it his mission to create products that were good for them but taste like they aren’t.
Late in 2003, after tasting a granola recipe one of the bakers was working on, Smulders said, “these gluten free people need granola!” He walked through the store and gathered ingredients and baked the first batch that day. It took almost 2 years to find gluten free sources of all the ingredients and find a place where we could make the product without risk of cross-contamination. Three years and two bakeries later, their gluten free granola is made in a 34,000 square foot manufacturing facility with state of the art quality controls and in-house gluten testing on every batch. Located just a few miles down the road from the original bakery, the plant maintains the small bakery quality by continuing to bake in small batches."
Nutty Cranberry Maple Granola-
"We gently toast corn flakes and rice crisps with sesame, sunflower, and flax seeds into golden clusters of crunchy goodness. Then we add plump cranberries, almonds and pecans for a delicious snack or breakfast cereal."
Extreme Fruit & Nut Granola-
"A taste explosion of almonds, Brazil nuts, pecans, walnuts, filberts, cranberries, raisins, coconut, and apricots all mixed with our trademark crunchy corn, rice and seed clusters."
Apple Raisin Walnut Granola-
"Delicious cinnamon toasted corn and rice clusters with tart unsulphured apples and plump raisins make a great start for your busy day. Made with unrefined sugar and Non- GMO expeller pressed canola oil."
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Bars-
"These delectable bars are just the right combination of chewy, crispy, chocolatey and peanut-buttery goodness."

Apple Cinnamon Soft & Chewy Bars-
"Made with real apples and cinnamon, it's like apple pie on the go - that just happens to be as good for you as it tastes..."
Cinnamon Raisin Fiber Power Granola-
"Made with certified gluten free oats and plump juicy raisins. Getting enough fiber can be hard on a gluten free diet, but starting your day with our delicious new Fiber Power gluten free granola can make it easier – with 9 grams of fiber per serving, you’ll get about a third of the FDA’s recommended daily fiber intake."
Triple Berry Fiber Power Granola-
"Made with certified gluten free oats and freeze dried raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. Getting enough fiber can be hard on a gluten free diet, but starting your day with our delicious new Fiber Power gluten free granola can make it easier – with 9 grams of fiber per serving, you’ll get about a third of the FDA’s recommended daily fiber intake."
Bakery On Main Gift Box-
"Give the gift of happy taste buds! This boxed set is the perfect gift for your gluten free friends and family (or even for yourself). Inside you'll find an eco-friendly reusable Bakery On Main tote bag, 1.5 oz gluten free granola snack packs of our Apple Raisin Walnut, Nutty Cranberry Maple and Extreme Fruit & Nut flavors, 2 oz. Fiber Power gluten free granola snack packs of our Triple Berry and Cinnamon Raisin flavors, and 1.2 oz gluten free granola bars in our Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Cranberry Maple Nut and Extreme Trail Mix, plus a $0.50 off coupon."
All Bakery On Main premium gluten free granola products are
-Free from Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Casein, Trans Fats and Cholesterol
-Certified Gluten Free
-Kosher OU Parve
-All Natural
-Non GMO
-Low in Sodium and saturated fat

What we thought: I was a little skeptical at first because I had never heard of oatmeal-free granola, but thanks to Bakery On Main, those who are on a GF diet and have had to stay away from granola can now snack on these yummy treats to their heart's content:) And after tasting them, they might just become a regular part of your diet! They come in a variety of delicious flavors and either loose granola or granola bar options.. The Fiber Power granola has that added punch of fiber, a very necessary part of everyone's diet. These snacks were loved by everyone in our family. I loved the portability of the granola bars and the amazing flavor combinations of the loose granola. Bakery On Main granola products are a healthy (but super tasty:) snack option for everyone, young and old, whether you are on a GF diet or not:) ABCD Diaries gives Bakery On Main snacks an A+!
