With All These Granola Flavors, The Possibilities are Endless

Variety is the spice of life. While it’s always great to have dependable favorites, there’s something wonderful about mixing it up—particularly when it comes to your breakfast options. Some days you really need those cozy, warm flavors. On other days, it’s the bright, citrusy zing that puts a spring in your step. At Little Red Wagon Granola, we give our customers year-round variety with four consistent granola flavors and occasional seasonal blends to enjoy. 

Our Year-Round Granola Flavors 

Granola is one of those breakfast foods that ticks all the boxes. It’s easy to prepare, great to take on the go, full of nutrients, and did we mention; it’s delicious! These classic granola flavors are available year-round, so you can grab a handful whenever hunger strikes.


The blend that started it all—our Original granola flavor has been a favorite ever since we started selling our granola at farmer’s markets back in 2004. It has everything you need in a cozy, flavorful blend. With warm notes of cinnamon and brown sugar and tons of pecans and almonds, this blend is filling and satisfying when mixed with your favorite milk or milk alternative. It also pairs perfectly alongside your favorite cup of coffee or tea.

Looking for something with a bit of tang? Then you’ll love Cosmopolitan. This blend features cranberries and orange oil for a zesty citrus boost. Because of its bright flavor profile, Cosmopolitan is an ideal blend to add as a topping to your yogurt, pancakes, or even ice cream. 

Try your hand at some baking with this Oatmeal Cranberry Cookie Recipe, featuring our Cosmopolitan blend. 

Crunchy Monkey

Crunchy Monkey (one of our favorites) is our twist on the classic chocolate-banana flavor. This blend is rich and satisfying with dried banana bits and chocolate chips. It’s also packed full of pecans and almonds to add healthy fats and a bit of protein. 

We love to use Crunchy Monkey in our baking recipes like this Banana Cream Pie (talk about banana overload—Yum!) 


Finally, our fourth year-round granola flavor was made especially for chocolate lovers. If you’re a fan of mocha lattes or chocolate cake, you’ll love this granola flavor. Mocha is a rich blend of dark chocolate, almonds, and just a hint of coffee. Try this flavor with vanilla ice cream, crumbled over the top of brownies or fudge, or on its own when you’re craving that chocolaty goodness. 

You can also bake it into delicious cookies with our Coconut Mocha Granola Macaroons recipe.  

Seasonal Granola Flavors to Enjoy Before They’re Gone 

Alongside our year-round granola flavors, we also offer unique seasonal flavors that take advantage of the best ingredients from each time of the year. These seasonal batches include Lemon Drop, Big Apple, and Pumpkin Patch flavors. These limited-time flavors are made in smaller batches, so once they’re gone, they’re gone until next year. So grab them while they’re here!

Think You Know How to Eat Granola? Switch Things Up with These 3 Tips

If you’ve been a long-time granola fan like us, you probably have a specific way you indulge in the crunchy treat. Are you a purist and only take your granola with cow’s milk? Or is yogurt and granola the only combination you’ll consider? At Little Red Wagon Granola, we love to mix up our snacking, so we’ve put together a “how to” eat granola with sweet tips from our team. 

I know how to eat granola, don’t I? 

It seems simple enough: pour granola into a bowl, top with milk or yogurt, enjoy. When it comes to how to eat granola, that’s about as classic as you can get. But once you add in the possibilities of dairy-free or plant-based milk or Icelandic versus Greek yogurt, even simple go-tos can become complicated. 

If you’re ready to try something new in your granola routine, the following options are some of our team’s favorites. 

Try it as a unique topping 

Granola is known for its crunch, which makes it a great topping. But instead of sprinkling it over yogurt, try adding those crunchy clusters to ice cream, frozen yogurt, pudding, custard, or even fruit puree. We’re partial to the Cosmopolitan flavor over a citrus sorbet. On a hot summer evening, there’s almost nothing more refreshing.  

Or as the crust to a cheesecake 

These days, tart and cheesecake recipes are all over social media––and we’ve seen some pretty inventive ones! Secretly, we’re crust fans so why not add our favorite snack in the mix? Instead of making an Oreo or graham cracker crust, throw some granola (our favorite is Original, but go crazy!) into a food processor, mix in butter, and pat down into a tart dish or springform pan. From there, the flavor combinations are endless. A blueberry vegan cheesecake with Lemon Drop crust? Perfect. Or what about a chocolate peanut butter tart with Crunchy Monkey crust? You’ll be the envy of the picnic.  

How about in a baked good?

With a few more ingredients and some imagination, you can transform granola into a baked good that will rival any bakery. The distinctive crunch in these clusters, with good-for-you nuts, makes them the perfect addition for baked favorites like granola cookie bars and baked oatmeal. Trust us, you may never go back to your milk-and-granola breakfast again after trying those. 

Our favorite “how to” eat granola? On its own! 

With all that said, you really can’t go wrong with snacking on our granola all by itself. We pride ourselves on unique and delicious flavors that will satisfy you on the go, on their own, or when you need to mix things up. Did our “how to eat granola” tips inspire you? Try all the flavors here


5 Summer Activities That Pair Perfectly With Our Handmade Granola Flavors

Summertime is full of possibilities. With warmer temps and longer nights, the activities range from long hikes to movie nights. We’re always thinking about the perfect snacks to fuel us for all of summer’s adventures––what better way than with our handmade granola flavors? Here are our top five summer activities and snack pairings. 


Hiking fuel that goes the distance

We’ve mentioned before that our handmade granola is full of good-for-you fiber and balanced nutrition. When you’re taking a hike on those hot summer days, you need food that will keep you fueled. Little Red Wagon Granola has the perfect blend of healthy fats, proteins, and carbs to keep you energized mile after mile. We suggest munching on the granola by itself. Try the Original or Lemon Drop, they’re both easy to eat by the handful. Or, make your own trail mix with the chocolate-packed Crunchy Monkey and your choice of nuts, seeds, and other mix-ins. 


The perfect picnic pair  

A picnic is a perfect excuse to enjoy good food in nature. Pick your favorite park, trail, or even your backyard to enjoy a spread of delicious, snackable foods. Make it unique with a breakfast picnic complete with yogurt and granola parfaits (we recommend Mocha) or a dessert picnic with an assortment of toppings, including granola crumbles! 


Handmade granola for the road 

Road tripping is the ultimate summer adventure. We know it’s easy (and even part of the fun!) to grab unhealthy road snacks, but our handmade granola is the perfect alternative. Bring along the Original flavor (no chocolate means no melting) for the perfect crunch while you play I Spy or sing 99 Bottles. 


Park day crunchies 

On those perfect, cloudless days, the park is full of endless summer activities. Whether you’re spending all day at the playground, reading a book in the shade, or riding bikes on a park trail, you’ll need snacks. Our variety pack of handmade granola flavors packs the perfect punch and crunch for an all-day park marathon. Plus, the different flavor choices are sure to satisfy cravings for even the pickiest eaters. 


Outdoor movie night go-to

There’s almost nothing better than ending a day of adventuring with a movie under the stars. And, we don’t know about you, but no movie night is complete without snacks in our house. We suggest mixing granola with popcorn for a fun crunch, adding it to ice cream, or making chocolate bark with granola and other fun add-ins. 

For grown-up fun, pair Cosmopolitan with fancy movie drinks or Mocha with an espresso to keep you awake during all-night marathons. 


Handmade granola for all summer’s adventures

Summer activities are some of our favorites and are, like most things, made better with snacks. We love to pair our handmade granola flavors in ways the whole family can enjoy, and ways that keep us fueled for the next adventure.
