Food Crush and Giveaway – Gluten-Free Granola from JK Gourmet

coconut ice cream and gluten free granola

At the Fancy Food Show this year I discovered a plethora of new gluten-free goodies, but one of my favorites was a gluten-free granola from JK Grain Free Gourmet.  I was smitten after trying their Cranberry and Cashew gluten-free granola, but a full-fledged food crush developed later when I received a sample of their Hazelnut and Date concoction made with coconut, dates, walnuts, pecans, hazelnuts, honey, sunflower seeds, almonds, sesame seeds and pumpkin seeds.  The combination of sweet, savory, crunch and chew is utterly delightful. While I loved it in big handfuls straight from the bag, it was completely decadent on top of ice cream.

I haven’t yet seen JK Gourmet in any stores near me, but I put in a request at my local health food store.  You can see a list of current stores on their web site or place an order directly.  One lucky reader will get a package sent directly to them with 2 flavors of the JK Gourmet gluten-free granola.  Just leave a comment below telling us your favorite way to eat granola (as a topping? like cereal? a dry snack?)  A winner will be selected randomly from all of the comments left by Monday, December 14th at 6:00pm Eastern.  US and Canadian residents only.

Cashew Granola!! *drool* I usually eat my granola in my yogurt, but I’ve been known to eat it by the handful. :)

Most commonly i just eat granola as a dry snack, but my favorite way to eat granola is mixed in with fruit and yogurt…yum! I need to check out the website and see if I can find this locally (or maybe just place an order!)

I love it as a snack, or to make granola bars. Wow, this is some of the best-looking granola I’ve seen!

Oh man, I really want some now! I just eat it plain or with yogurt – traditionalist. I haven’t found my favorite granola yet; homemade is as close as I’ve gotten.

Granola? I LOVE snacking on it just as is. The less additions, the more I can enjoy the different flavors in ever bite! I’m on a hunt for this granola now, first time in years I’ll be able to eat it! Thanks :)

I either eat granola with milk or plain. It looks great with ice cream though. I have never tried granola with ice cream!

This looks like a great breakfast and dessert for me with almond milk, since I am a diabetic celiac with soy, dairy, and egg allergies too!!

This looks great, I’d love to enter the contest! I love granola over nonfat greek yogurt (drizzle of honey optional).

I love to mix GF granola with plain yogurt and top with fresh wild blueberries. What a treat!

I LOVE granola on top of Bob’s Red Mill hot cereal – adds a little something extra :). Also, with Greek yogurt and honey – delicious! I have been searching for a really great GF granola and would love to try the Cranberry & Cashew GF granola :).

I love to eat granola with vanilla yogurt and frozen blueberries. I can’t seem to get enough of it and I’ve been eating it every morning for six months. When I got the diagnosis of Celiac I thought I’d have to give it up but then I found GF granola. Would love to try these new flavors.

Wonderful giveaway, do they use spelt? Anyhoo, my favorite way to use granola is as the top crust for Apple Brown Betty, or baked Agave and Fruit desserts. Make’em all the time, so easy and everybody loves it.

I love granola anyway I can get it! I probably like it best just by itself though – not competing with any other flavors or textures.

I used to love crumbling Nature Valley honey and oats granola bars over Tillamook French Vanilla yogurt back in my gluten-eating days. Now, when I can find gluten-free granola, I love it by the handful or as a topping for apple crisp!

Thank you for writing this blog. I have been reading the archived posts and choosing the recipes I’d like to try. I definitely connected with your posts describing the challenges of GF eating in social contexts. “Its the people, not the food” has become my mantra to keep from being frustrated. Being that you live in Manhattan, you’ll understand my biggest loss after being diagnosed with Celiac on 10.22.09. NYC bagels are my soul food. A sesame bagel with butter and a cup of coffee while reading the newspaper was one of my greatest joys. I mourn the loss. Keep on writing!!
