May 12, 2017
Granola lovers, rejoice! Your granola has never tasted this good! Viki’s signature granola was created as a delicious, nutritious snack to be enjoyed
by family and friends. Cooking and baking have been Viki Sater’s lifelong passion. 

Viki’s Foods was serendipitously born in 2009 when Viki Sater started baking Viki’s Granola from her very own kitchen. By 2010, Viki had rented a commercial kitchen space and began the journey to launch what is now the fastest growing granola brand in the U.S.

Today, Viki’s Granola is available in five delicious flavors, including Original, Blueberry Almond, Maple Cranberry, Banana Walnut, and Apple Cinnemon.

Always gluten-free, and always a good choice, Viki's Original Granola takes rolled oats, organic honey and adds a touch of almonds and pecans to offer a flavor-packed ride.

Bursting with a flavorful blend of antioxidant-rich blueberries and protein-packed almonds, Viki's Blueberry Almond Granola certainly won't leave you feeling blue, unless you've finished the bag, that is. Enjoy it right out of the bag, sprinkle it over yogurt, or add into oatmeal for an extra burst of natural, fruity goodness!

Cranberries, walnuts and maple, oh my! Each bite of Viki's Maple Cranberry Granola is packed with Omega-3 goodness and a punch of dried cranberries. To create this tangy treat, Viki took her signature blend of gluten-free oats, organic honey and coconut, added dried cranberries, and drizzled with pure maple syrup for the perfect touch of natural sweetness. Enjoy it right out of the bag, sprinkled over yogurt or even as a salad topping for the perfect amount of sweetness!

Banana Walnut is one of the newest additions to Viki’s line of delicious signature soft-baked granola.
Viki has captured the essence of warm, freshly baked 
banana bread and packed it into her newest flavor of granola! Viki added banana chip bunches and walnuts to her signature mix of gluten-free oats, organic honey and coconut to create a delicious granola that you are sure to go nuts over.

Apple Cinnamon is one of the newest additions to Viki’s line of delicious signature soft-baked granola. Imagine all of the flavors of a homemade apple pie, transformed into a wholesome snack! Pair this classic flavor profile with your favorite vanilla yogurt or ice cream for a truly indulgent treat – ummmmmm, good!

Viki’s Foods is dedicated to creating foods made from inspiration and high quality ingredients, with health and happiness at the core. All of Viki’s recipes are “one of a kind culinary art creations” with a strong emphasis on taste, presentation, and consistency. The family owned and operated brand prides itself on its approach to maintain traditional, homemade cooking.
