Where crunch meets creamy

NutHouse granola and Noosa yogurt find harmony together.

Here’s a harmonic pairing made in healthy-food nirvana: NutHouse granola and Noosa yogurt.

Berkeley-based NutHouse produces small-batch granola (original and fennel-orange), almond butter and four kinds of artisan nuts (smoked paprika-accented pecans have our heart) in eco-friendly packaging. The original flavor is a mix of rolled oats, raisins, organic coconut, almonds, walnuts, pecans, brown sugar, maple syrup and spices.

We spooned it over Noosa’s blackberry-serrano chile yogurt, one of 27 flavors (don’t forget tart cherry) from the Australia-inspired Colorado-based company. The crunch of the granola blended perfectly with the super-creamy yogurt, showing sweet ’n’ heat in a range of textures. We feel better already.

NutHouse granola is $8.30-$9 for 15 ounces at Whole Foods, Corti Bros. and Taylor’s markets. Noosa yogurt is $2.25-$2.50 for 8 ounces in most supermarkets.
