Start your day crunchy
The Granola or Crunchy is an integral part of the morning rituals of many breakfast lovers. The biscuit texture provides the right crispness.
Do something good for yourself and your body, because our Crunchy is not only delicious, but is also made from wholegrain flakes, which are rich in fibre, vitamins and minerals. Wholemeal regulates your blood sugar level and keeps you full longer. So ravenous appetite doesn't stand a chance. In addition, the fibre they contain ensures a healthy digestion.
But where does the Granola actually come from? Crunchy muesli was invented in the 19th century. Its inventor was the American nutritionist James Caleb Jackson, who wanted to serve his patients a healthy and tasty breakfast. In the USA, this type of muesli has long been very popular.
How healthy is the Crunchy?
We use oats for most of our organic products. This grain is highlighted by nutritionists as particularly valuable because of its 10% fibre content, the quality of its carbohydrates, the protein composition, the unsaturated fatty acids and the vitamins and minerals it contains. It is also scientifically proven that the beta glucan contained in oats has a positive effect on heart health.
Some of our Verival Granolas are made not only with oats, but also with barley, spelt and wheat. What do all varieties have in common? They are made from whole grain flakes.
Whole grains are cereals in which all 3 parts of the grain are processed. This means that fibre, vitamins, oils and minerals are ideally preserved. The flakes help to keep the blood sugar level constant, lead to a long feeling of satiety and support digestion. The energy storage emptied overnight can therefore be optimally replenished with whole grain.
Make Crunchy yourself - simple and healthy recipe
A crunchy muesli consists primarily of cereal flakes baked with honey, syrup or sugar. Depending on taste, other ingredients can be added, such as sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, chopped nuts, dried fruit, coconut flakes, chocolate, spices and much more. There are no limits to your imagination.
Simple do-it-yourself recipe:
- 200 g oat flakes
- 2 tsp cinnamon or cocoa powder
- 100 g dried fruit
- 150 g nuts / kernels (also berries and seeds)
- 50 g shredded coconut
- 80 g coconut oil (sunflower oil as alternative)
- 5 tablespoons maple syrup or honey
We focus on sunflower oil
Palm oil is the most widely used vegetable oil and consumption has increased enormously in recent years. To produce it, however, rainforest is cleared, and many animals and people lose their habitat.
At Verival we are aware of the negative effects of palm oil and do not use it. We focus on sustainability and therefore use sunflower oil, or more precisely high-oleic sunflower oil. This is an oil that is very rich in oleic acid and can therefore be heated to high temperatures without any problems. This is what makes our Crunchy so beautifully crispy when baked.
With us you get unadulterated natural enjoyment in the best organic quality. That’s a promise – underpinned by the organic quality seals.
Vegan, gluten free or without added sugar, our assortment offers a great choice for all kinds of diets and preferences.

Granola Preparation & Storage
Mix all ingredients except the dried fruit well and place them evenly on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Before doing this, you should preheat the oven on 180 ℃ convection oven. Now slide your tray into the oven.
Keep a close eye on your crunchy muesli. You should mix everything thoroughly about every 5 minutes. Just take the baked oats out of the oven. Repeat this for about 25 minutes and you will be more than satisfied with the result. Now mix in the dried fruit. Let everything cool down and you are done.
How do I store my homemade granola correctly?
Your granola should last for about two weeks if stored well (it is best to keep it airtight). If you do not seal your granule muesli airtight, it will last about a week. So play around and try a little bit with our recipe.

The crunchy muesli is the perfect middle ground between healthy and light temptation. See for yourself!

What is granola?
Granola, or crunchy muesli, is typically oven baked to give it a wonderfully crunchy texture. In our granolas that lovely crispiness is provided by gently toasted wholegrain cereals and puffed wholegrain rice crispies. More...
What's so special about Verival Granola?
The recipe for our granolas is a simple one: premium ingredients and plenty of time. Wholegrain cereals are gently toasted using a specially developed baking process, then blended with an array of different goodies.
The result is eight deliciously crunchy varieties for your breakfast table: Berry, Honey, Oat, Spelt, Chocolate, Orange & Acerola, Blueberry & Apple, or – for those who find it impossible to decide – Fruit Mix.
To ensure superlative quality, many steps are meticulously done by hand at our production facility here in the Tyrolean Alps. Our granola recipe is based on wholegrain cereals, sweetened with honey – or raw cane sugar for the vegan varieties. And it goes without saying that none of our products contain palm oil.
Where did granola originate?
Granola is generally thought to have been invented by a 19th-century American doctor, who had wholegrain oat flakes toasted to provide the patients at his sanatorium with a healthy yet temptingly crispy breakfast dish. He subsequently started marketing it as granola, and over the years it was combined with an array of different ingredients.
Granola saw a resurgence in the 1960s, when it was rediscovered by the hippy subculture. Hardly surprising, perhaps, given that it combines healthy eating credentials with enjoyable sweetness and crunch – still the signature features of granola today.
Here at Verival we offer eight different varieties of granola, so there's one for every taste. Incidentally, it's also great for making cereal bars or adding to desserts and is an ideal snack for people on the move. Visit our blog for some tasty recipes!
