Searching for the Toronto's Finest Granola

  • 11
  • Share

I'm still mourning the loss of Vienna Home Bakery and her 5.95 bag of yummy granola. I'm looking for a replacement and I wondered if any Chowhounds have advice. Vienna's granola was mostly oats, pumpkin and sunflower seeds with a touch of sweet and cinammon.

Any thoughts?

  1. Not sure of the make-but Costco sells a wicked home-made style granola that is addictive. We ussually munch as we shop.

    1. I bought one is Costco that's sooo good too! It had pumpkin seeds and flax seeds and just the right amount of sweetness. The name escapes me right now but I can check later...

      1. Try the organic fruit stand in Kensington (near the Burrito joint). Not too sweet, with big chunks of dried fruit. Delicious.

        1. Bump. I mean a Really Big Bump!

          Any places making and selling a noble granola out there ? Tried doing it myself, but making a good one is as elusive, expensive, and frustrating as baking to me...

            Emma's Country Kitchen - 1108A St Clair Ave W - great granola for eat in or take out. Delicious jam and buttermilk biscuits as well!

          2. I haven't found granola that I like in stores. I loved the granola from Eigensinn's Farm's Christmas Market that was insanely delicious, but generally I make it myself from a very easy recipe: http://www.marthastewart.com/337707/b...

            I make a double batch and use Loblaws dried cherry/blueberry/cranberry mix. The only drawback is my family devours it, so it doesn't last long.

            1. I'd highly recommend the granola from Mabel's bakery. I'm absolutely hooked on the 'super seedy' version. So good!! Not too sweet and filled with seeds, coconut, & oats.

                Thanks doji,

                Used to live close to Mabel's but never visited them. Will give the Super Seedy a try...

                  FYI - Mabel's is now open on Queen W. too.

              2. My fave is at cherry bomb coffee, $7 for a decent sized bag. Cranberries, walnuts and slabs of cinnamony love

                  Just bought a bag from cherry bomb this weekend and agree that it's delicious!
