Simply Suzanne Granola Review

15 Flares 15 Flares ×

One of my favorite meals is vanilla yogurt, granola and fruit. I have tried many combinations, blackberries, strawberries, blueberries and many different types of granola.

I was excited to discover a new granola brand, Simply Suzanne, and even more excited to learn that it is manufactured in Detroit, Michigan. We try to support Detroit whenever possible.

GranolaWe tried Lotsa Chocolate, So Very Cherry and Original. Unlike a great many other granolas that are simply sweet, Simply Suzanne’s Granola is both sweet and savory.  The savory comes from a hint of pepper that she puts in each batch. It adds a subtle punch to tickle your taste buds.

Simply Suzanne GranolaI decided to  use the Lotsa Chocolate Granola to make the chocolate cookie recipe that appears on their website. It was rich and flavorful. If you like chocolate cookies , you will love these.

Chocolate Cherry CookiesThen I used the So Very Cherry Granola to make banana granola muffins. They were very tasty.  I was worried that adding the granola to these recipes would create a dry finished product, but it did not. All it did was to add a little extra crunch. The other thing I like was I was taking a not so good for you chocolate cookie and by adding the granola I was adding protein and fiber.


Banana MuffinsThe Lotsa Chocolate is made with semi-sweet chocolate and is good in either the cookies, on yogurt or simply eating out of your hand. The So Very Cherry is made with with Michigan cherries and is 100 percent vegan friendly. The Original is made with pure maple syrup, brown sugar, cinnamon and peanuts.

I was concerned that with the pepper, our granddaughters would think it was too spicy, but they loved it. Never mentioned the pepper or thought it had a bite. They could not stop eating it and I had to put it away so I would have enough for the cookies and muffins.

Simply Suzanne Granola is definitely a product I will use again and again in many different recipes.

Product was provided. No compensation was received. The honest opinions are my own.
