New Year = A Perfect Excuse for you Granola Bar Addiction

Every year when January arrives, there is a divide in attitude toward baked goods: those on a “diet'“ and those who continue eating their usual daily scone/quickbread/cookie. If you’ve heard us wax poetic over the years about the quality of ingredients we use, how often we opt for whole grains and fresh produce in our recipes, and how most of our products highlight ingredient flavor over just “sweetness”, you know that we also support a healthful approach to eating (and living!). We aren’t going to tell you not to diet this month. We are going to encourage you not to swear off anything from any bakery altogether, because, maybe January just means it’s time to try something new and slightly less decadent? Plus, the weather is perfect and you need energy for that long bike ride over the bridge.

Sure, skip your usual devil’s food brownie (even though it’s 100% whole grain anyway). Try our heritage grain biscotti, or our 100% whole grain chocolate chip cookies, showcasing six whole grain flours along with bittersweet chocolate and coconut sugar.

Or have a granola bar (fig and seed, peanut butter chocolate buckwheat, or cashew coconut rye). Be warned that these granola bars may form an addiction, though, with their stick-with-you-to-lunch energy from real nuts, seeds, fruit, and grains rather than fillers, starches, or gums. You might crumble them up on top of your yogurt, dip them in coffee, or slather them with almond butter before a workout (all real habits of 3 of our die-hard granola bar customers). You may end up having them shipped across the country, or you may snack on them while you’re working at your desk. They’re vegan, free of refined sugar, and two are gluten conscious (the third not only because of its whole rye flakes). They’re delicious, to boot.

Maybe we’ll even come up with some more flavors this month, just because we care about your breakfast habits that much. Happy snacking!
