Get The Freshest Take on Apple Cinnamon Granola With Little Red Wagon

If we had to guess America’s favorite fruit, the apple would be a top contender. The balance of crispness and sweetness make it a perfect snack staple or star ingredient anytime of the day or year.  Our Big Apple Granola, plays homage to the all american fruit and brings together the delicious flavor of apple with comforting notes of cinnamon.

Why We Call It “Big” Apple Cinnamon Granola

Some may think of New York City when they hear “Big Apple”, but we think apples are a star in their own right!  To ensure our take on this classic flavor hit all the right notes, we mixed both dried apple chunks and unsweetened applesauce.  Pecans add a nutty crunch, raisins a delicious chewiness, and cinnamon a subtle warmth that ties it all together.

Although our Big Apple Granola is a winter seasonal, it’s so popular we make it year round, so you never have to miss out!

  • Crumble and sprinkle on top of a berry compote for an easy topping.
  • Add to an arugula salad for a sweet crunch and extra fiber.
  • Layer it on fresh apple rings with peanut butter for a sweet and savory snack. 
  • Mix with walnuts and puffed brown rice for a hearty trail mix.

The versatility of apple cinnamon granola makes it a great choice for families with a wide variety of palettes.  Even the pickiest eaters seem to

Is Yogurt and Granola Healthy For Breakfast?


At the start of the New Year, healthy foods are a hot topic. And yogurt and granola is a traditional breakfast go-to. But you might be wondering: is yogurt and granola healthy for breakfast? When considering your options, pay attention to serving sizes, preference low-sugar options, and choose varieties of yogurt that are low in fat and high in protein. 

Is Yogurt and Granola Healthy? Here’s Why Serving Size Matters

Everything in moderation, the old saying goes, and the same is true about yogurt and granola. Even with a ‘healthy’ food, we can get too much of a good thing when it comes to portions. Starting the day out with six to eight ounces of high-protein yogurt, like Greek yogurt, paired with your favorite granola is an easy go-to. A nut-milk or soy-based yogurt is also a great substitute if you are lactose intolerant. Next, we turn to toppings!

High Fiber, Nutritious Oats Keep Your Gut Happy

Things like oatmeal and granola provide that signature contrast of fiber and crunch when it comes to choosing the perfect pairing for yogurt. Fiber helps to slow everything down in the body during digestion, preventing a blood sugar spike after eating. The whole-grain fiber from oats makes for a happy gut. The oats in granola help to move things along in the digestive tract and reduce inflammation. Fiber is also great for heart health, helping lower cholesterol when it’s part of a healthy diet.

So the next time you reach for your bag of granola, you’ll have a whole new appreciation for what this crunchy, snack-time favorite is doing for your health!

Source Your Probiotics and Protein From Yogurt

To kickstart the day, yogurt is a probiotic-packed protein source that also includes calcium and B vitamins. In a cup of Greek yogurt, there are 13 grams of protein which helps you stay full during the busy rush of the morning. When choosing yogurts, it’s easy to fall into the sugar trap of flavored varieties at the grocery store. Our advice is to stick to unflavored Greek yogurt and add some honey for a little natural sweetness. 

Is Yogurt and Granola Healthy For Breakfast? Yes, If You’re Watching Sugar Intake. 

The same goes for the quality of your granola. The American Heart Association sugar recommendation for men is to consume no more than 36 grams of sugar per day, and women to consume 24 grams or less. Note that this is only for added sugars, so not counting sugars that naturally occur in dry or fresh fruit (which is actually fructose).

Keeping your breakfast under 10 added grams of sugar is a good guideline to ensure you don’t spike your blood sugar too early in the day. 

Some types of granola can be high in sugar content, so we recommend something made with high-quality ingredients like our original granola! Two-thirds cup of our original granola contains 7 grams of sugar, which is just under the recommended threshold for a balanced breakfast. 

Enjoy Your Morning Crunch With Little Red Wagon Granola

Your morning scoop of yogurt contains all the vitamins, proteins, and probiotics to keep a healthy lifestyle fueled. Check out our delicious, small-batch granola flavors to shake up your morning breakfast bowl.

Not Your Average Granola Bowl: Take Your Breakfast To New Heights With These Superfoods


As the weather turns and your farmer’s market favorites disappear until next season, your morning breakfast routine might feel a bit lackluster. Craving more depth of flavor from your morning granola bowl? Switch it up with these easy superfood additions. Acai and other healthy, antioxidant-rich ingredients keep your immune system supercharged in a fun way. 

For a Granola Bowl With Flair, Try Cacao

Cacao. What’s not to love about this raw, unrefined version of chocolate that’s sure to give your morning a mineral-rich start? Cacao is the perfect ingredient to liven things up for your granola bowl if you like a hearty way to start the day off right. 

 We recommend you start with a few spoonfuls of your favorite yogurt and a scoop of Crunchy Monkey Granola with accents of a delicious mix of dried bananas, chocolate chips, pecans, and almonds. Then sprinkle in a teaspoon or more of unrefined cacao powder, a drizzle of honey, and voila: The perfect, warming, nutty granola bowl. 

For The Perfect Hint of Fruity Sweetness: The Acai Bowl

Acai berry is hard to describe if you’ve never had it before, but it’s truly delicious. It has tart notes of blackberry and even dark chocolate and is more bitter than sweet. Acai berry scores low on the glycemic index, which provides a stable morning start to your blood sugar. 

Mix a premade frozen acai pack in a blender with a scoop of your favorite protein powder (vanilla or chocolate pairs well with acai). Blend in a scoop of your favorite frozen berries or a frozen banana for thickness, add in a scoop of nut butter for even more power, and blend. Sprinkle our Original Granola over your acai granola bowl for that essential crunch, and go to town!

For The Daring To Be Different, Spirulina Is The Way To Go

Spirulina is a nutrition-dense form of algae packed with minerals like potassium, magnesium, iron, and B vitamins. You may know it for the vibrant aquamarine color it brings to any dish. Yes, like the kind in the ocean, but it’s safe to eat. Many vegetarians and vegans adore spirulina as a protein source. 

Start with a half to a full teaspoon of spirulina to add this inflammation fighter to your usual morning smoothie. Then, pour it out into a bowl. Add a few slices of fresh fruit and a sprinkle of seeds, top off with granola and be on your way. 

Stick With Granola As Your Mainstay For Every Breakfast Adventure

When you’re feeling tired of the same old combinations, a few new ingredients can put a spin on an old favorite.  A good granola is your trusty sidekick to wherever your palette may take you. Trust your gut and go with the foods you love, day after day, for fiber-packed, gut-friendly ingredients. Granola is easy, fuss-free, and pairs well with nearly any breakfast food. So go forth and conquer the day. We’ll be here, providing the same top-quality oats and an irresistible crunch, and that’s a good thing.

Easy Fall-Themed Snacks with Pumpkin Spice (and Everything Nice)


Fall is all about snacks chock-full of warm flavors like cinnamon, nutmeg, and the long-awaited favorite: pumpkin spice. With so many great foods to choose from, you can make some creative, fall-themed snacks! So whether you’re planning a spooky movie marathon or a harvest party for your friends, embrace the best that fall foods offer with these easy, delicious ideas.

Make a Harvest Snack Mix With Pumpkin Patch Granola

Nothing spells fall like Chex Mix. It’s a versatile savory or sweet treat your kids will love to eat by the handful. But instead of buying the premade grocery store seasoned mix, create your own with the bounty of the season’s flavors. Start with plain rice, corn, or cinnamon Chex, and add in white chocolate chips, mini pretzels, dried apples, and our favorite: Pumpkin Patch granola. Crunch your way through November with this fall-themed snack that’s sure to be a favorite!

For The Ultimate Fall Themed Snack: Apple Slices with Caramel Dip

This simple pleasure both adults and kids will love! A caramel apple without the chewy, sticky mess is a real crowd-pleaser. You can cut up several varieties. We suggest a tart or green variety to contrast the sweetness of the dipping caramel. Cut apples into wedges, serve fanned out on a plate with the dip in the middle, and watch it disappear before your eyes.  

Yogurt Parfait Cups With Big Apple Granola

Tangy, protein-packed Greek yogurt is an excellent way to fulfill your protein needs without even noticing it. And, of course, it can always be replaced with a nut or soy-based yogurt if you’re dairy free. These parfaits can be served by the tray full as an after-school snack or a great, quick, premade breakfast. 

Start with a layer of yogurt at the base of the parfait. Then, sprinkle in something crunchy like our Big Apple granola, roasted almonds, your seeds of choice ( we recommend roasted pumpkin seeds). Then layer on a seasonal fruit like persimmons, apples, or pears, finish off with a drizzle of honey, a dusting of cinnamon, and dip in your spoon. 

Sprinkle Some Granola On Your Favorite Pumpkin Loaf or Apple Muffins
