Childhood Classic All Grown Up

We don't know about you but, from time to time, we miss good, old fashioned peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. There's just something comforting found in two slices of bread with peanut butter and fruit on them. Because they're not always the most convenient thing to make, we'd like to think we found a great (healthier) substitute - and without that pesky crust!

Julie Hession, is the owner and founder of Julie Anne's All Natural Granola. She created a line of granola products that are receiving rave reviews from all kinds of magazines from People to Food Network Magazine. Trust us, it's worth the hype.

And never fear, if you're not in the mood for a PB & J, she offers other flavors too. According to Julie, "Some people enjoy eating the Tropical Bliss Granola over yogurt for a healthy breakfast, the Maple Blueberry over ice cream, the Sweet Citrus sprinkled over fresh fruit, or the Berry Yummy PB&J with a glass of ice-cold milk. Me? I eat them all straight out of the bag!"

Even better news? You can grab a bag from the Fresh Market in Baltimore or Annapolis! Or, if you don't feel like making the trek, products are available for online purchase as well.

These granola bags would also be great to toss in to your out-of-town guests' welcome packages!
