I’m a seed and nut lover so I was happy to find out about Lizi’s Treacle & Pecan Granola. I have been sent a packet to try and for me, it is an instant hit! Pecans are one of my favourite nuts and they’ve been gently toasted in this mix and balanced with black treacle to make a truly delicious blend. Considering it is so tasty, I was interested to learn that it has a low GL (glycaemic load) of just 7.3g per 50g serving. This helps provide a slow energy release which should help keep you feel fuller for longer.
I preferred having the granola with yoghurt but my husband preferred having it with milk. We also tried sprinkling the granola on vanilla ice cream (as recommended on the packet) which makes a delicious ‘grown up’ dessert.
The product comes in attractive packaging with a zip-lock air tight seal for freshness. The best before date of our packet is for March 2014, giving us over a year to consume it at it’s best but I can assure you our packet will be long gone before then! I rate this delicious granola 5 stars out of 5. I would highly recommend it to anyone. It is also dairy free, wheat free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It contains no hydrogenated oils and no GMOs.
If you would like to know the uses with other foods as part of a dessert, such as Key Lime Pie or incorporated into well-known recipes such as flapjacks or stewed apples check out her website. If you would like to know more about Lizi’s granolo, follow them on facebook or twitter.
