nuthouse! granola

NutHouse! Granola is locally made and packed with whole nuts, juicy fruit, and pure maple syrup. The granola is mixed by hand in small batches then slowly baked to create a beautiful granola that is perfectly balanced in richness, sweetness, spiciness, and saltiness. The final product is rustic and delicious, and has an addictive texture. Nut House Granola is made in Berkeley, CA using all natural ingredients including California farm-direct Almonds, Walnuts, Pecans and Raisins, Organic Oats, Coconut, and Agave Syrup, and Non-GMO Verified Canola Oil. We offer NutHouse! Original Granola in convenient 10# bags. NutHouse! was founded by a professional chef who needed a premium granola for his customers, but could not find a commercial granola that was hearty enough so he decided to create his own. The result is a granola that is so good, it may cause you to forego making your own.
