Amy Glin, personal chef and boutique artisan food producer, has been making her addictively delicious granola for discriminating customers for 6 years.
Glin combines all her orders, and goes into production 4 times a year- March, June, September and December. Her clients have learned to order enough to last them through the 3 month period-she says it’ll last even longer in an airtight container- although this reporter went through hers very quickly.
The granola, declared by Food411.com to be “ by far the best granola we have tasted” is made with organic oats, and there are 3 luscious flavors to choose from- Vanilla Maple (the original one), Cinnamon Coffee Bean (the coffee is from Groundwork and is organic and fair trade), and Vanilla Chai. The Vanilla Chai, by the way, caught the attention of another local boutique food artisan- P.O.P Candy in Santa Monica, uses the granola in their Chai Tea Granola Pecan Bars.
Glin developed the recipe when cooking for groups at the Institute of Noetic Sciences in Petaluma, and needed a vegan granola. In shopping around for one, she realized that many granola products contain fillers like whey, powdered milk and honey. Yes, even honey, a granola staple, is not a product that vegans eat. Glin’s granola is sweetened with maple syrup.
Chock full of nuts (the ratio of nuts to oats is 3 to 2), seeds and raisins, even people who don’t like granola like this one, and I’m sure you will, too.
