Ancient grains go into this granola

Amaranth, quinoa, and chia seeds make Purely Elizabeth Ancient Grain Granola Cereal (about $6.99 for a 12-ounce bag) a nutrient-rich and hearty breakfast or topping. Also in the mix are organic oats and sunflower seeds. The gluten-free granola comes in original, cranberry pecan, pumpkin fig, or blueberry hemp. Coconut palm sugar sweetens the blends and adds a caramel flavor while coconut oil gives a buttery taste. Owner Elizabeth Stein, a nutrition counselor in New York, launched the company three years ago. The healthy granola tastes so good you can skip the yogurt and eat the cereal straight from the bag. Available at Harvest Co-op, 580 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 617-661-1580 and 57 South St., Jamaica Plain, 617-524-1667; Pemberton Farms, 2225 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge, 617-491-2244; Good Health Natural Foods, 1627 Hancock St., Quincy, 617-773-4925; Debra’s Natural Gourmet, 98 Commonwealth Ave., Concord, 978-371-7573; or go to
