from BeeFree Gluten-Free Bakery |

Chunky and paleo diet–friendly, Indy's BeeFree granola includes honey from Wildflower Ridge in Anderson and cayenne pepper, which gives each cluster some kick. This gluten-free snack and its original flavor (pictured above) are both made without oats because they sometimes come in contact with wheat.

Flecked with shredded coconut, pecans and sunflower seeds, and sweetened with brown sugar and molasses, this granola is just as tasty layered with fruit and yogurt as it is sprinkled on ice cream. Every batch is mixed by hand at the Bakehouse's production facility on State Road 37 on the north side of Bloomington.

by Circle City Sweets |

This granola, with dried fruit, pecans and coconut, gets its distinctive taste from shagbark hickory syrup, which Hickoryworks in Brown County makes using the tree's bark. If you prefer a sweeter granola, try this Indy bakery's honey vanilla blueberry variety (pictured center), which has blue agave syrup and dried blueberries.

Where to buy: Circle City Sweets, 222 E. Market St., Indianapolis; Goose the Market (; and the Carmel and Broad Ripple farmers' markets (see farmers market guide for more information).

Muddy Fork in northeast Monroe County bakes its bread and pizza in a wood-fired brick oven on Friday, and then uses the leftover heat to bake the granola on Saturday. Less sweet than other granolas, it uses all organic or local ingredients, including honey from Hunter's Honey Farm.

Also try the chocolate chip granola bars.
