How Sweet It Is?

Dan Chandler

We get a lot of questions here at our Crazy Monkey Bakery. One question we get asked about every day is, "How much sugar is in your granola?" Well, how much sugar do you think?

How much sugar is in a serving of Coca Cola? 29 grams

How much sugar is in a Snickers? 57 grams

The American Heart Association(AHA) recommends that men eat no more than 9 teaspoons of sugar in a day and that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons according to Medical News Today.

How many grams of sugar in a teaspoon? 4 grams

Both popular snack items we mentioned above exceed the daily recommendation for women and according to our calculations, men would go over their suggested limit if they enjoyed both items in the same day! 

So back to the question we get asked so much. How much sugar is in a serving of Crazy Monkey Baking Granola? It depends on the flavor. 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crumble and Dark Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crunch, like many of our flavors, have 8 grams of sugar or 2 teaspoons per serving. Our Cinnamon Pecan granola and Pumpkin Seed & Spice granola contain 6 grams of sugar or 1.5 teaspoons per serving.

So, when choosing an afternoon or evening snack, consider all of our granola is a better option than a candy bar or a soda!

Crazy Monkey Baking Bestsellers

What flavor should you try if it is your first order? Great question. 

Crazy Monkey Baking has six year round flavors and four flavors that are seasonal. Right now nine of our ten flavors can be purchased online.

What is missing? Lemon Coconut

Lemon Coconut is very popular in the summer months. Our bakery will start producing this flavor soon.

Pictured below are the Top 3 flavors that have been purchased in the last quarter. This is interesting trend because Dark Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crunch has been number one for a long time with Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crumble running a close second. Did you know we make our own Peanut Butter?

The real surprise is White Chocolate Cranberry jumping into the third spot. Crazy Monkey Baking has always had a bigger demand for Cranberry Almond and Mint Chocolate Chip. This is my wife's favorite flavor. This is chewy cranberry with just the right amount of white chocolate.

Make sure when you place your order to try a new flavor. You never know which one is the best granola until you have tried them all. Have you tried all of our delicious flavors yet?
