The Granola Goddess store is the new home for Molly Dawson’s Daily De-Lish products. She makes seven specialty granola flavors, granola bars and cookies. She’s a die-hard granola eater and realized that most of the store-bought variety seemed too dry and not filled with the nutritional goodies she likes - namely nuts. So, she started making her own and started the business in January 2010.
 
The new store, located in Suite F at 4950 Plainfield NE in Plainfield Township, opens its doors on Thursday, May 22. The open house is from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. The store features Dawson's products as well as granola ingredients (many organic, and including gluten-free oatmeal), custom gift baskets, Grand Rapids Coffee Roasters coffee beans and other unique gifts. Michele Barnes from Mrs. B will be on site on Tuesdays making her focaccia breads, sandwiches and soups. These will mostly be sold frozen at the store with some fresh availability. 
 
Dawson strives to use Michigan ingredients while balancing price and a desire to include organically grown items – just like the rest of us. The Michigan ingredients most often used in Daily De-lish products are eggs, sugar, honey and dried cherries.
 
Dawson is always up to something creative and delicious. Right now she’s working on spiced nuts recipes, two new granola flavors and trail mixes named for her sons: Jett Fuel and Dax Trax.
