Review: Happily Grazing on Amazin' Graze Granolas, Nuts and Nut Butter

Firstly, let me tell you all first who is the #1 fan of these awesome granola and nuts in the house - baby Vern! Yes, he fights with me for the food! haha.

Well, before Amazin' Graze contacted me to do a review on their products, I am already their loyal customer. I first tried their granolas during a food fair held in Gurney Paragon last year. And as I loved it so much, I started buying from them online and I kept going back for more.

So I am very happy to do a review of the product because I was already "bragging" about them in my personal Facebook/Instagram pages. :)


Amazin' Graze's mission is very straightforward - to change the way people snack. They want to encouurage real food only (none of the fake stuff or empty calories).
They really believe in eating right, not less.  ( in tune with me, as I can't do with eating less haha)

So they are obsessed with creating healthy alternatives, using great quality, raw ingredients with fun combination that taste amazing - and that is Amazin' Graze!


The package was delivered by Ninja Van, which is one of my preferred courier because I always have good experience with it so far!
Package was wrapped in a normal plastic package, which initially I was a bit apprehensive because I knew I had a glass tub of nut butter inside.

Took them out and saw that they granolas and nuts were in another plastic bag while the nut butter has another layer or protection to it. Phew.

This was how they packaged the Nut Butter Glass Tub.
It has something like a giant egg carton protection and wrapped in layers of sticky tape.

And when I opened up the carton box protection, there was another layer of thick bubble wrap surrounding it. And lastly, another plastic shrink wrap on the bottle itself!
Great indeed to ensure the customer received the tub in perfect condition! Thumbs up Amazin' Graze on the secure packaging!

So these are the products I chose from Amazin' Graze website. 

For the 2 granolas, I chose the Hazelnut Blackforest and the Blueberry Goji Coconut.
For the Nut Mixes, I chose the Berry-licious Trail Nut Mix.
And for the Nut Butter, I chose the All Natural Almond Butter. 

Let's talk about their Granolas first.

So what is a granola?
Granola is an oat-based cereal commonly eaten at breakfast or as a snack. Amazin' Graze's granola contains rolled oats with nuts, fruits and other superfoods baked into crunchy clusters.

Their granolas has no preservatives, free of any refined sugar, is all-natural and free of any artificial additives.

I heard that these two granola flavours are one of their bestsellers, so I couldn't wait to try them!

For the Blueberry Goji Coconut Flavour, it comes in a 250g packaging with a zip-lock resealable opening to ensure freshness.

You can see that the ingredient list are listed at the front of the packaging.
Almonds, Organic Chia Seeds, Wild Blueberries, Goji Berries, and Coconut. 
Wholly awesome good!

The Blueberry Goji Coconut Granola tasted amazing. My 2 elder kids like this one. They can munch on them just like that! 
It is overall a much healthier snack than many others, so for that I give this a thumbs up even if my kids wanna snack on this whole day!

I, on the other hand loves to add these to my bowl of yogurt. 
On a bowl, I scooped some natural yogurt, then top it with half an avocado, some fresh blueberries and then sprinkled some Blueberry Goji Coconut Granola on  it.
The granola added a crunch and some sweetness into my otherwise rather tard yogurt. Love it!

I also lke to add them to my bowl of smoothies. 
The left photo, I blended some frozen dragonfruit with a little yogurt, and then topped it with some bananas, blueberries and the Granola! 
On the right photo, I blended the frozen mango with some frozen bananas and some yogurt, then just topped it with the granola.
Super yums and refreshing indeed. I could eat them ALL DAY EVERY DAY 24/7 haha!

Even Vern couldn't help but to steal some spoonfuls of it from me!

As for the other flavour, the Hazelnut Blackforest Granola, it also comes in a 250g packaging with the same resealable zip-lock opening to ensure freshness. 

For this Hazelnut Blackforest Granola flavour, the ingredient list consists of dark cocoa powder, buckwheat, organic chia seeds, hazelnuts and cranberries. 

And because of the dark cocoa powder, the colour of this granola is dark black in colour. And for that, I love it and my kids loved it too. Look at Vern enjoying it and refusing to pass the whole packet back to me haha!

I also loved to eat the granola as it is because the dark cocoa makes it so choc-aromatic.
But then I did try pairing it with my fruit salad and it tasted amazing as well.

Now to the Berry-licious Trail Nut Mix.
Well, this one a keeper of you like all things naturale! There is no sweet taste to it.
It comes in a smaller packaging of 120g.

The ingredient list shows just walnuts, almonds, mulberries, cranberries, and black raisins. 

Because there is no oats or such in it, this is also a gluten-free option!

Baby Vern loves this as a snack. I bring this out for him to snack on whenever we dine out. I break them into small pieces and he loves snacking on them while waiting for our food to come. 
(Besides the rather hard Almond, the rest he can eat them just like that!)

This is a unsweetened option and is really a great snack for everyone who don't have such a sweet tooth!

And lastly, their nut butter. 
Their nut butters are 100% stone ground to preserve the nutrients and flavours of the nuts while mantaining a silky-smooth texture. 

I chose the All Natural Almond Nut Butter.

This All Natural Almond Butter is just purely almonds lightly roasted and stone-ground into a silky-smooth butter. That's it - there is no added salt, sugar or any other oil!

There are actually many ways to eat this. 
The most common is to spread it on toasts, swirl some onto your oatmeal or even use it as a substitute of butter in baked goods! 
I haven't tried the last suggestion, but maybe I should!

Firstly, I spread it on toast and make it into a Beary Toast for baby Vern!

But to tell the truth, he ate the blueberries, then threw away the avocado and banana slices and the side and just ate the bread! haha

So these are the masterpieces that I managed to create for this review post.
I actually have more but I think these photos are enough to make you hungry for Amazin' Graze's awesomely delicious granolas, mixed nuts and their nut butters!
