I’ve added a new category to this blog, which has organically and exponentially grown, to Local Loves.
I’m from a small hometown and the emphasis on local, organic and sustainable was part of my family (yes, even in the 80’s) far before it was trendy. That said, I love supporting the Colorado food scene (and even beyond) with small, artisan and growing food-related products. My first official post (although I’ve been doing this informally for a while) is a big shout out to Boulder Granola.
Boulder Granola – Unleash Your Inner Hippie
Boulder Granola is a Mother (Jody) and Son (Julian) team, which I love. Their granola is gluten-free and organic. Julian told me know that they’re the only granola that is 100% organic (even their gluten-free flavors). They use certified organic gluten-free oats which also includes protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
The ingredients for Boulder Granola are purchased locally and always within a 100-mile radius. They bake in small batches and all in Boulder. I personally love Boulder Granola and the small packs to bring with me to work for extra energy and/or in yogurt and fruit!
Jody’s mother had been serving her homemade granola since 1969 to her family, children, neighbors and friends for years. After realizing and embracing the beautiful, entrepreneurial nature of Boulder (and unleashing her inner hippie) Jody received the recipe from her mother.
Shall we say, the rest is history?
Currently, they offer Original, Cranberry and Chocolate Granola (in 3 and 12 ounce bags). Gluten-free is available in original. I love fruit, so my favorite is the cranberry.
The ingredients includes:
organic rolled oats, organic canola oil, organic Vermont maple syrup, organic golden flax seeds, organic sesame seeds, organic sunflower seeds, organic non-fat dry milk, organic oat bran, organic cranberries, organic sugar, organic sunflower oil, organic coconut, organic pecans and organic almonds.
Lucky for you dear reader, no matter where you are, you can buy this delicious, hearty granola online.
In Colorado, you can find their locations in groceries and stores here. Be on the lookout for their groovy-heart logo with lots of sunshine and good lovins.
