We all know it. We all love it. The Granola. With its cookie-like texture and fine sweetness, the granola is an important part of many breakfast bowls. The baked cereal clusters provide your breakfast with the ideal bite and your body with enough energy for a perfect start into the day.
The Granola and its history
The typical granola contains crispy, puffed and sweetened cereals other than cornflakes. The granola first became popular in cereal bowls around 1930 and soon rose up to be childrens’ favourite breakfast, not least because of the cute mascots on the packs.
The typical preparation of Granola
This is how granola is typically prepared: oat flakes or other cereal flakes and various ingredients are blended together and then baked in the oven with some kind of oil. For our VERIVAL Granolas, we use ingredients such as raw cane sugar (for the texture), honey, freeze-dried fruit, chocolate, coconut flakes and many more. We carefully mix these ingredients together and bake them with sunflower oil instead of palm oil. They have a very unique biscuity and sweet taste and will definitely crunch up your breakfast in the most delicious way.
Typical ingredients for our VERIVAL Granolas and why we love them:
- Oat flakes: are rich in fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants
- Wholegrain rice crispies: for a light little extra crunch
- Coconut flakes: are a good source of fat and also contain the vitamins, B2, B6 and E
- Various fruits: for a fresh and fruity note (To make sure their taste is well contained, we like to use freeze-dried berries as ingredients in our granola mixes. Moreover, we highly recommend to top the breakfast bowl off with fresh, seasonal fruit.)
- Honey: contains anti-inflammatory enzymes, bioactive substances and antioxidants
All ingredients in our VERIVAL Granolas are of course completely organic.
The best ways to prepare our Granolas:
We love our Granolas as a topping for fresh fruit or smoothies and milkshakes. Of course, the Granolas can also be mixed with muesli and combined with your favourite milk, plant-based drink or yoghurt. By the way, Granola can also be used to create delicious desserts, for example a granola fondue with friends:
