But it’s not just the MCT oil that has people talking. Purely Elizabeth’s granola has all kinds of other healthy ingredients, like organic pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, and almond butter. Eating pumpkin seeds has been shown to help improve heart health and help prevent certain cancers, per Healthline, while sunflower seeds can aid in lowering cholesterol and blood pressure (also via Healthline). Chia seeds are a surprisingly great source of whole grain, and are packed with fiber and nutrients, as Healthline points out elsewhere, and almond butter is high in calcium, vitamin E, and healthy monounsaturated fats that can help control blood sugar and reduce the risk of heart disease (again, at Healthline). Each serving (one-third cup) of the granola has only 170 calories, five grams of protein, five grams of sugar, and zero trans or saturated fat, according to Purely Elizabeth.
Even if you aren’t following a keto or paleo diet, the granola is worth buying just for the taste alone. Lightly sweetened with coconut sugar and hint of vanilla, the granola is as pleasing to the taste buds as it is to the body, and users on social media seem to agree. As Instagram user @costcoguide posted: “That sounds so good. I love vanilla and almond butter, so I’m sure this is amazing!” @healthyatcostco concurred, writing that the granola was simply “one of the best granolas at Costco.”
