Best Granola

Big Sky Bread Co.

509 W. Cold Spring Lane, (410) 662-6070

Granola gets a bad rap--mocked as the food of self-denial, hair-shirt nosh of body nazis and crunchy leftists. Roland Park's Big Sky Bread Co. reclaims for granola its place in the pantheon of snacking pleasure. Big Sky eschews the extras (dried fruit, candy, loads of sweeteners) used to turn granola into trail mix or kid-friendly breakfast cereal.
