Searching for the Toronto's Finest Granola

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:

            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.
