This is Artisan Granola.
People have asked me if it’s low-fat, low-cal or low-carb. The answer is an emphatic “No!” I think it takes too many artificial ingredients to make a good granola that’s low-fat or low-cal. Nuts, by their very nature, are high in the good fats, the unsaturated kind. And nuts have been proven to lower LDLs, the bad cholesterol. And really, what would granola be without nuts? Eat what’s good for your body, stop when you’re full, exercise a little and life will be good.
Original: It’s probably what you imagine granola should be. Lots of nuts, oats and honey goodness. Then we add in the blueberries and cranberries. It’s the one we eat for breakfast everyday at our house. Joey and Jude like to pick the blueberries out.
Serving Ideas: Try it with the usual, yogurt, milk or how about in your salad? Yes in your salad. It’s outstanding.
Peanut Butter/Chocolate: The best flavor combination in the world if you ask me. I could sit and pick at this one all day. My sister single handedly polished off a whole bag on her trip back to Pennsylvania after Thanksgiving. I roast the Granolove and then at the end of the batch stir in natural peanut butter, which contains only ground nuts, no added salt, and organic chocolate. The two melt together into the Granolove and cool into little chunky treasures in the bag.
Serving Ideas: Blend some into your pancake or cookie batter. Your kids will love it. Okay, really you’ll eat it all, but your kids will love it too!
Dark Chocolate/Cherry: The sophisticated one. Dark chocolate nuggets blended with tart dried cherries for a unique and delicious union of flavors. A little bit of dark chocolate every day is good for your heart….at least that’s what I’ve read. But heck, who needs an excuse…indulge.
Serving Ideas: Great on ice cream or blended in custard. Or straight from the bag with a cup of coffee…mmmm
Moka Java: Speaking of coffee. This is our newest creation, and it works far better than I could have imagined. Even if you’re not a coffee drinker, you should try it. The coffee taste is subtle, and with the dark chocolate, it’s a marriage made in heaven. We take dark-roasted Sumatra coffee beans and partially grind them, then stir in with dark chocolate pieces for the best snack and afternoon pick me up you’ve ever had. Each bag contains real coffee beans, so it does have caffeine.
Serving Ideas: It’s your morning “cup” of coffee AND breakfast. Put some in a coffee mug, pour in some milk or a little cream and you’re good to go – either at your breakfast table or on the go. Try Moka Java in a bowl topped with a scoop of French Vanilla ice cream for a special after dinner dessert.
