I call this granola, but the package doesn’t say ‘granola‘, it says Clusters. Of course, everyone who eats granola knows it comes in clusters. So, I am sticking with granola.
There are a number of different flavors, including Oats and Honey, Peanut Butter and Whole Grain, Dark Chocolate and Cranberry and Maple Walnut, to name a few. Otherwise, this looks just like granola only it tastes a whole lot better. Since I don’t like processed foods, I especially liked the quote on the package front, “Ingredients you can see and pronounce.”
I have been a granola fan for over 20 years and have written up several for the blog. I have some every day as a first course for lunch, usually with fresh blueberries or strawberries and a tablespoon of flax seed on top, in a bowl with milk. You can read my write up of Paleo Granola here.
Here are some of the elements that make KIND clusters different from regular granola. They are all whole grains which are sweet and crispy. They taste so good I often eat them right out of the package.
Here is some info straight from the package of the Oat and Honey Clusters:
100% Whole Grains, 17 g Amaranth, Quinoa, Oats, Millet & Buckwheat

I buy these online from Amazon. If you like them and want to get them regularly, you can subscribe and get a box of three sent out as often as you like with no shipping charges.
There is also a line of KIND energy bars which I haven’t tried yet.
Dare I say, “Be KIND to yourself and try some.”
