Just by looking at Ellee’s Gourmet Granolas and Granola cookies that arrived for this review and giveaway you can almost sense how good they taste through their plastic packaging with all their wholesome ingredients of delectable dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and chocolates.  Yet, as I opened one of the bags and got a whiff of their delicious spicing, my nose only confirmed what my eyes already were telling me. 


This small Miami-based company started by husband and wife team, Eric and Ellee Kaplan, developed as a natural result of some of Ellee’s granola baking masterpieces.  Before getting incorporated into granolas or their cookies, a mixture of oats, hemp seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds and two varieties of sesame seeds, cured in a mixture of virgin coconut oil and natural raw honey, are slowly baked for the base.  The taste of what I sampled I assure you is fresh, free of artificial preservatives and outrageously chalked full of flavor.  

The three varieties of Elle’s granolas ($8.99) that I received were the Fruit & Nut Lovers, Orange Blossom and their Tropical Blend choices.  Each new one that I tried seemed to tempt me more that it was hard to narrow just one that I preferred overall since each was special in its own right.  These were delicious for lunch in my yogurt.

Here’s what made my decision so impossible.  Fruit & Nut Lovers Granola was bursting with blueberries, cranberries, cherries, raisins, pecans, walnuts, and almonds.  Whereas, their Orange Blossom Granola had cranberries, pecans, and candid orange peel to further elevate that crunchy goodness into something else just as yummy. The Tropical Blend Granola with pineapple, papaya, toasted coconut, cashews, and macadamia nuts became one that you just wanted to keep eating straight out of the bag.  

Ellee’s makes regular granola cookies ($6.99) and gluten-free granola cookies ($7.99).  I found three bags of their gluten-free granola cookies with The Lemon Cranberry (moist and beautifully accented with lemon and tart cranberry) Espresso Chocolate Chip (chocolate flavor multiplied through its batter and chips)  and Fruit & Nut (moist and fruit-laden almost like no fruit was left behind).

There was also three bags of Elles regular granola cookies with their White Macadamia Nut (white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts), Orange Chocolate Chip and Coconut Chocolate Chip granola cookies.


Besides what I described here, Ellee’s Gourmet Granolas has a lot of other appealing varieties of both their regular and gluten-free granola cookies that you should check out for yourself, family or to give as gifts. Give Dad something he’ll be sure to love this Father’s Day like a box from Ellee’s!

    For those who have eliminated gluten from their diets, ellee’s granolas and gluten free cookies provide an unequaled taste treat. This is great since my son suffers from Celiacs disease.

    I want to try the Fruit & Nut Lovers granola as I love all nuts and fruits! The Tropical Blend also sounds interesting. I love coconut and am looking forward to trying dried papaya! The granola cookies are more challenging to find two I want to try as I want one of each!! I think I'd choose coconut chocolate chip and lemon cranberry. I'll have to beat my family off with a stick if I want to eat these myself! 😉
