1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup wheat germ
3/4 cup dried cranberries, blueberries or cherries
1/2 cup slivered almonds, pecans or walnuts
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup honey
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 cup canola oil
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract



1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray. Combine the
    oats, flour, sugar, wheat germ, dried fruit, almonds, cinnamon and salt in a large
    mixing bowl; mix well with a spoon. Make a hole in the center of the ingredients.
2. Pour the honey, egg, oil and vanilla into the hole. Use your hands to mix it well.
3. Pat the granola in the baking pan. Use an oven mitt to place it in the oven. Bake

5 Tips to Make your Gluten-Free Lifestyle Delicious & Nutritious

If you follow a gluten-free lifestyle, you know that grocery shopping and meal preparation can often be frustrating. Searching the supermarket for the right products and coming up with easy, tasty meal options isn’t always easy. Let Buehler’s be your personal shopping assistant! Our stores strive to meet the individualized dietary needs of our shoppers and we provide expert advice along with an exciting selection of new and unique products that will add taste, nutrition, and diversity to your gluten-free meals. Whether you’ve just started following a gluten-free eating plan, or you’ve been going gluten-free for a while, we’ll help you make fun, flavorful meals that will satisfy both your taste buds and nutrient needs. Registered Dietitian, Shari Steinbach, provides the following tips to help you shop for and prepare tasty gluten-free meals that are delicious and nutritious:

Emphasize nutrient-rich choices

Start by loading your cart with fresh foods that are naturally gluten-free such as fruits and vegetables, milk, unprocessed cheese, meat, poultry, fish, eggs, beans/legumes, eggs, nuts and tofu. The next step is to search out gluten-free sources of grain such as rice, corn tortillas and grits. These foods can comprise the basics of your eating plan. Then it’s time to discover the wide variety of special gluten-free items available at Buehler’s like baking essentials, snack foods, condiments and more.


Explore the store

You don’t have to go on a lengthy scavenger hunt to find gluten-free products at Buehler’s. We make it easy by having Healthy Living sections and Gluten-free tags in a growing number of our locations and we are continually expanding our offerings with delicious new products. Each time you shop, select a few new gluten-free items to try. You’ll find a variety of exciting choices in the baking, snack, pasta and cereal aisles to name a few. We also have delicious options in our frozen and bakery departments.

Currently seven of our stores are set up with the Healthy Living tags and signs: Ashland, Orrville, Massillon, both Medina locations and both Wooster stores. We hope to expand the program to all 13 stores by the end of 2021.


Find your favorite baked goods and baking ingredients

Buehler’s has a large variety of options to choose from regarding these products so it’s just a matter of finding your favorite. Look for whole grain gluten-free breads and crackers, pasta made with brown rice or bean flours and flour blends that can be substituted equally for wheat flour. The new products in these categories offer more taste and better-for-you choices than ever before and Buehler’s is committed to making them available to our customers. You’ll find many of our favorites on our Gluten-Free Shopping List, and by seeking out the gluten-free tags in the Healthy Living section of our aisles.


Be a label reader

If you are unsure about a product fitting into your eating plan, be sure to check out the label. It will tell you if a product is made with gluten-free ingredients and can serve as a short-cut for finding the right foods. Click here for a list of ingredients to avoid. Some foods also have advisory statements, like “May contain wheat,” or “Made on equipment that also processes wheat.” Some companies use them to warn allergic consumers about a real risk in the processing of a food. On the flip side, you may see statements like “Made in a dedicated gluten-free facility,” or “Made on dedicated gluten-free equipment.” You will learn the ins and outs of label reading faster than you might think.


Stock up on easy meal components

One way to always ensure you have a quick and healthy gluten-free meal on hand is to customize your kitchen those products that help you easily assemble simple meals. Click here for a one-week menu planner featuring gluten-free products from Buehler’s in simple assembly meals.

Buehler’s Presents $46,189 to the American Heart Association for Life is Why We Give campaign


Once again, Buehler’s Fresh Foods continues to go the extra mile for the communities in which they serve through their commitment to giving back. The grocery retail chain participated in the Life is Why We Give campaign September 19 – October 17, 2020, asking customers to buy a $1, $5, or $10 heart in support of the American Heart Association of Stark and Wayne counties. Customers were encouraged to write their why on hearts which were posted at each of the stores to raise awareness. Buehler’s Wooster Milltown Store Manager, Andy Williams, Milltown’s Service & Facilities Manager, Joyce Keener, Buehler’s Community Relations Manager, Gayle Martin, Wooster Towne Market cashier, Jeff  O’Dell, Wooster Towne Market Store Manager, Jody Dawson, Buehler’s Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, Mike Davidson, and Milltown cashier, Wanda Zimmerman, presented a check for $46,189 to Jenn Fortney, Development Director for the American Heart Association.

The funds raised through the Life is Why We Give Campaign helped the American Heart Association reach its $150,000 goal for the Wayne Heart Walk. The AHA is using those funds to gift 200 automatic blood pressure cuffs to our community – as well as the resources to educate our community members on the importance of blood pressure control.

Mike Davidson, Buehler’s Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing, stated, “It has been an honor to partner with the American Heart Association in their battle against Heart Disease and Stroke. I am humbled by the efforts of our Buehler’s teammates and the continued generosity of our customers. Our customers and teammates deserve all the credit for this successful program.

The work we did will save lives in the communities in which we serve.”

“The generosity of the Wayne County community continues to blow us away,” said Jenn Fortney. “Thanks to Buehler’s support and the generosity of their customers, the American Heart Association is able to fund research, educate, make changes, and provide lifesaving resources right here in Wayne County. Until the world is free of heart disease and stroke, we’ll be here working to make a healthier life possible for everyone. Thank you to this wonderful community for standing by us in that fight!”

In Stark and Wayne counties alone, heart disease and stroke claim 2,500 lives every year. But we are fighting back. In just the last year, the American Heart Association has trained more than 22,000 community members in CPR, reached more than 21,000 people through blood pressure screenings, and funded $22.3 million dollars for research.

About Buehler’s Fresh Foods:

Buehler’s Fresh Foods grocery store was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. The family moved the business in 1932 to Wooster and, after four generations, grew to 13 stores serving the northeast Ohio market. In 2017, Buehler’s became an ESOP (employee stock ownership program) with the belief that selling to their own employees was the best way to assure the continuation of the innovative and creative spirit that made the chain a benchmark for independent grocers.

The 13 Buehler’s Fresh Foods supermarkets are located in Wooster (2), Orrville, Wadsworth, Medina (2), Ashland, New Philadelphia, Dover, Jackson Township (Canton), Coshocton, Portage Lakes (Green), and Massillon, Ohio. Buehler’s Fresh Foods is committed to environmentally responsible behavior, local sourcing of product, and supporting the communities in which we operate.
