Honey Nut Granola Tips

Get a dehydrator! Eastern Shore Honey Nut Granola is simple to make and stays fresh for weeks. It's versatile too - use it to dry flowers, fruits, and herbs for salads, candy-making, or recipes.

Raw Food Diet

Try the raw food diet - it's all about eating raw, unprocessed foods. No heating above 118°F, no refining, pasteurizing, or pesticides. Just pure, goodness for your health. Enjoy this raw honey nut granola straight from the bag or with homemade almond milk or your favorite nut milk.
