Move over sugary cereals; an all-natural granola is paving the way as the health blogger’s cereal of choice.
With the trend for being health-conscious on the rise, there has been an influx in alternative cereals being made available to us. This is a great thing, as most healthy cereals/granolas on the supermarket shelves, quite frankly, taste like cardboard, with those horrible chewy pieces of fruit… not to mention that they are full of sugar. So when it comes to choosing your healthy sugar free granola, which one do you go for? Well, I can vouch for Rollagranola.
Rollagranola is a small, family-run company that focuses on delivering the highest quality of products.
They make granola that tastes great, is healthy and nutritious, and is made without any nasty additives. Using a mixture of nuts, seeds and fruits, their granolas are jam-packed full of fibre and natural oils – perfect for maintaining that healthy lifestyle. Rollagranola cater to all sorts of dietary choices, from sugar-free to paleo, so there is something for everyone to indulge in.
I got my hands on a bag of Energise, hoping to keep my belly full and my energy levels high throughout the day. At first taste I couldn’t help but think that this granola was on another level. Eating a bowl of this was like taking a bite of my Nana’s homemade apple crumble, with added nuts. The nutmeg comes seeping through, filling you with a warm comfort, and there’s a slight sweetness which comes from the honey. It also had my favourite pistachio nuts mixed in, which added texture, and the macadamia added a slight creaminess too.
It was a really tasty bowl, and I think the spice blend worked perfectly and really complimented the clusters.
I really didn’t need to eat a lot either, and I stayed full until lunch time. Some of the clusters were quite gigantic but nothing my spoon couldn’t break down. The great thing about this granola is how versatile it is. I mean you don’t just have to have it for breakfast with milk; I made apple pie overnight oats, sprinkled it on my smoothie bowl, and also made a crumble topping.
I would really recommend considering a breakfast swap to this granola. I didn’t have the urge to snack and my belly felt content, not to mention it was great for keeping my energy levels up thanks to the sprinkling of maca powder, nuts and seeds. There is a pretty extensive range with a variety of tastes and flavours, and I for one can’t wait to try them all. This one take a permanent place in my cupboards.
