Organic Ingredients

There are good reasons why Back Roads granola is so damn good. We exclusively use premium plant-based organic, gluten free ingredients that are non-GMO Project Verified, vegan & kosher. All ingredients are painstakingly sourced from pristine organic farms around the globe. Our family recipes are naturally low in sugar and only lightly sweetened with pure Vermont maple syrup. And, we’re generous when it comes to adding fruits, nuts & seeds. We are experts who know a thing or two about making and baking every batch of granola to golden, crunchy perfection. Oh, and did we mention that we always ship fresh out the oven? Nothing better than that.
