Anahola Granola is among my favorite Kauai made products. Its tropical flavor and homemade goodness has also become popular with our Kauai vacation rental guests.
While their business has grown over the past 25 years, Anahola Granola is still handmade one cookie sheet at a time. Recently I met up with Becky who started Anahola Granola from scratch. The smell of toasting grains and nuts in the oven while we talked was too good to pass up.
If you’ve ever made granola you know that it’s time consuming and requires frequent stirring while baking. Becky and her team mix all of the ingredients by hand in small quantities. Locally sourced products are used whenever possible including honey from the Big Island.
On the Anahola Granola website you can read more about Becky and her passion for baking. Becky moved to Kauai in 1982 and started selling her granola at local holiday fairs in 1986. It caught on and now her popular Anahola Granola is sold throughout the islands and Costco stores on Oahu, Big Island and Kauai.
