Product: Lizi’s Granola
Age Range: n/a
Manufacturer’s Description: My home baked granola was always a favourite with guests at my Oxfordshire B&B in the 1990’s but it took several years as an organic farmer in Wales for me to realise the importance of real food which inspired me to develop my range of granolas. Now I look around the world for natural ingredients with exciting flavours for your breakfast table.
This is my Original Granola. There have been some refinements since the early days in the B & B: nowadays there’s no wheat, no peanuts and less sugar, but it still retains the essential flavour and crunchiness that first appealed to so many people. There’s something about this cereal that works really well with the addition of fresh fruits. Add yoghurt or milk and you have one of the healthiest, greatest tasting breakfasts it is possible to eat.
Rating: (4/5 stars)
Review: We were sent a bag of Lizi’s Granola to try a little while ago, and James & Georgie have been working their way through it ever since.
I’m not the biggest granola fan, personally, so my reaction after a few bowls of it was “yup, it’s very nice… For granola,” before heading back to my morning cereal, spoon in hand. Georgie, however, can’t get enough of the stuff and has been gobbling up big bowls at a time, occasionally asking for more when the bottom of her bowl came in sight.
With slow-release energy,this breakfast option is great for children & adults alike. Georgie definitely went longer than normal before needing an energy-boosting snack, and James reports that he managed to resist the urge for a naughty mid-morning snack at his desk too This slow-release of energy is down the low GL (glycaemic load) per serving.
The flavour of this granola is very yummy, the texture great, and it doesn’t go ridiculously soggy within seconds of adding your milk (to me, this is important. I hate soggy cereal!).
I asked James for his contribution to the review, and he came up with “it’s really nice” – short but to the point I guess!
We would give this granola 4 out of 5 stars, and at £3.45 we would probably purchase it again if we saw it on offer, or James fancied it again as a treat.
