Natures Path Nice and Nobbly Granola Review




I find a good test of a good cereal for me is if I can eat it without milk, I put very little on my cereal anyway, often opt for yogurt and fruit. 

So when I was sent the new Nature's Path Granola to try, I dived straight into the packets first to have a munch. I love the name Nice and Nobbly, clever names always leap out on the shelves and the bright packaging helps.

Munching the 'nobbles' is very pleasant, my particular favourite are the Raspberries, Strawberries and blueberries with yogurt. 



For those who like their granola with milk, I did behave and try the Pumpkin Seeds, Almonds and Raisins with a light dash of cinnamon. The clusters are large in part and lovely and crunchy, the smaller oats are nice at the end of the breakfast still firm even in milk.  The raisins plump up a bit more and are satisfyingly sweet and juicy.

Oh I should mention this is gluten free granola, so good for those with any allergies or dietary needs.

Sorry but the Raspberry Granola remained a snack, it did spend a short time with some raspberry yogurt this morning, now that was a pleasure.


Other Serving Suggestions:
 Add a dollop of natural yogurt and a drizzle of honey.
Sprinkle on top of some cold stewed fruits for a quick and easy pudding.
Mix with a little melted butter for a uniquely ‘nobbly’ crumble topping.
 Keep some in a small plastic bag/container and eat as a snack at the office, or when out and about/exercising.

Fancy tucking in to some for yourself? Thought so! Nature's Path have kindly offered a nice and nobbly prize of two, yes two cases of the new Granolas for one lucky reader!

  18. depends on time! i love porridge and museli so if i have enough time i like to add chopped fruit to porridge (just chop apple or pear and pop in bowl with milk, stir and microwave and then pop in some raisens), but a lot of the time i dont seem to have enough time and end up with one piece of toast or even wait until after the school rush and have breakfast after! (if our son is being a bit stressy i just get indegestion if i eat then) x

  25. I have cereal every morning. It's the perfect start to my day. I love museli type breakfasts through the week when I'm dashing off on the school run/off to work, with lashings of cold milk.
