Granola

Hello all
I've been reading in this forum a lot but now it's time to post!
Has anyone seen "granola" in the grocery stores?
I used to buy this at safeway in canada in boxes of about 1 pound or more... perfect addition for boring yoghurt and cheaper than "muesli" already premixed, sometimes with raisins sometimes with honey....

Thanks a lot!
Oh and by the way, near Basel would be great

Re: Granola

hi todaymoser--I was never really clear on the difference between granola and muesli anyway, but I do know what you mean about adding it to yoghurt. I usually find the muesli mixes too sweet (and, like you do, expensive) so I tend to make my own, starting with mixed flakes like this and adding nuts, seeds, fresh or dried fruit, or whatever I feel like.

They might have a similar product at the Reformhaus.

Vitality shops are called "Reformhaus" in Switzerland and they tend to be on the pricier side. Here a Google search for Basel.

Honey and oil - The difference is explained here.

The Bircher-Benner clinic is in Zürich (now owned by Zürich insurance) it used to be a place for rich Europeans to come and "cure" themselves.

Re: Granola

thanks for your answers and great links!
I guess I try and do it myself, but i still miss the real granola
it was a mix not meant to be eaten with milk as muesli... just for adding some crunch to your food, "haferflocken" here just don't crunch and then the stickiness.. but loose not like a granola bar
sometimes with cranberries mhmmm but i know where to find these hehe.

Thanks now I got really hungry

Re: Granola

Here's a nice write-up on making your own granola, including links to some other very good posts about the same subject:
