Made with 12 healthy ingredients, Cowgirl Granola is an all-natural, small batch granola that is handcrafted in San Antonio, Texas. It is a perfect food for purists who want a wholesome and tasty alternative to the store bought granolas. It's toasty, crunchy, low in sugar and chock full of nutritious nuts.
Cowgirl Granola has no preservatives, oil, butter, maple syrup, honey or high-fructose corn syrup. Instead, Cowgirl Granola is made with just organic oats, five different nuts—whole almonds and cashews, local Texas pecan halves and pieces, raw organic pumpkin seeds and walnut halves and pieces—dried fruit, a hint of brown sugar, ground organic flax seed, spices and pure vanilla.
It tastes good and is good for you.
One-quarter cup has approximately 150 calories, 5 grams of protein, almost 5 grams of fiber, just 7 grams of sugar, 7 grams of fat (which comes from the nuts, so it’s good fat), 0 grams of saturated fats and only 40 mg of sodium.
Cowgirl Granola is great straight from the bag, sprinkled over Greek yogurt (preferably made by Mother Culture) with a drizzle of honey and fresh fruit or topped with milk. Many Cowgirl Granola fans enjoy eating it as a nourishing snack, as the oats and nuts provide both quick and long-lasting energy, while the more adventuresome have been known to put it on ice cream. Add a handful of dark chocolate chips and you've got a delicious trail mix.
Because Cowgirl Granola is made with no additives or preservatives, it is recommended that you store it in the freezer. Not only does it taste great cold, it helps maintain the freshness as well as the crispy texture.
A 12 oz. bag is $8 and a pound bag is $11 and is sold exclusively at The Yard Farmers & Ranchers Market as well as through the online store. To learn how and where you can get your Cowgirl Granola this week, go to the Get CG page.
