If you love granola and haven’t tried Best Ever Granola yet, you’re missing out. It started out as a batch prep breakfast recipe in The Veg Out Project Recipe Series…but people wanted more. They wanted to be able to buy the granola they’d been inhaling. And so Sarah, the recipe creator, started Best Ever Granola.

Like so many others, Sarah is Pittsburgh born and raised, moved away for a while, and eventually came back. She has a background in teaching, coaching, and consulting in health and wellness, so owning a granola company is a perfect fit! She loves helping people incorporate more plant foods into their diet – and her granola is both vegan and gluten free.

One thing we love about Best Ever Granola is how so many of their ingredients are locally sourced. You’ll find PA maple syrup from Paul Family Farms, organic gluten free rolled oats and raw seeds from Frankferd Farms, pink Himalayan sea salt from Steel City Salt Co, even their cacao nibs are from Columbino Farmers in the Strip District, who direct imports from Columbian family farms. Sarah loves that she’s able to support other local families and businesses with her business. And besides, ingredients matter, whether you’re cooking in your own kitchen or making granola for all of Pittsburgh.

All of these buying choices seem like small decisions, but they make a really big impact on the environment, and our local economy here in Pittsburgh.

Sarah Kaminski, founder of Best Ever Granola

There are currently two granola flavors: original and dark chocolate chia (which doesn’t contain nuts!). Sarah is planning to grow into seasonal flavors, as well. And they have the cutest kitchen towels!

So, long story short, if you haven’t tried Best Ever Granola yet, get yourself out to one of the 40+ local shops, cafes, and markets carrying it! Or find them popping up at farmers markets…and they’re always available online here.
