Granola is a delicious mix of oats, dried fruits, nuts, seeds, and other nutritious treats! Sweet or salty, and fantastically crunchy, this unique and always changeable treat can be used in a variety of ways to give you a small pop of flavour, crunch, and nutrition any time of the day.
But with so many varieties to choose from. What’s the best way to eat granola? Not to worry! At Oloaa, we make it our business to know everything there is to know about granola. You can check out the granola recipes section where we post our delicious recipes. Also, here are a few of our favourite ways to eat granola.
Granola for Breakfast
One of the simplest ways to enjoy your favourite granola is by having it as a bowl of cereal! Simply choose your go-to flavour of granola and add fresh milk, plant-based milk, or Greek yoghurt. If you would like to get a little fancier, you can prepare a delicious parfait. To make the perfect parfait, use 1 cup of fruit (any will do), add 1/2 cup of plain yoghurt, and a 1/4 cup of your tastiest granola mix and voila, breakfast is served!
Tasty Granola Desserts
Did you know that you can add granola to just about any dessert? Take muffins for example; wherever you would add a touch of brown sugar before baking, replace it with granola as a healthy alternative. Granola also tastes great added to blueberry, chocolate chip, or banana muffins.
If you’re craving more than a muffin, check out unique recipes such as the No Bake Peanut Butter Granola Cups. Ideal for school snacks, family picnics, or just a sweet pick me up, these cups are made with granola, chopped peanuts, peanut butter, and honey. As an added bonus, this sweet treat can be made without having to use the oven!
Unique Granola Meal Ideas
Acai bowls are a nutritious meal option that can include granola. Just like parfaits, there are a ton of ways to personalize these yummy bowls to satisfy your cravings. What is an Acai bowl you ask? Well, it’s made from acai berries that are blended to a smoothie-like texture. Full of antioxidants, the acai berry is lower in sugar with moderate fat and is thought to have brain-boosting benefits. After these berries are blended, you simply add your favourite toppings to create the ultimate meal replacement. For a dessert like acai bowl try adding our chocolate granola, it’s vegan-friendly and high in protein and fibre!
Granola Bars are great options for an in-between snack on the go. Say you have your breakfast at home, you head into the office and start to get hungry waiting for your lunch break. An Oloaa granola bar is a great option for a healthy light snack to get you over your hunger hump.
Granola bars are also a great post-workout alternative to what you get from your nearby grocery. Two things come to mind for this post-workout snack: the amount of Protein and Carbs and the source of it. What sets Oloaa bars apart from other products is the amount of added nuts and seeds. Nuts and seeds are packed with a healthy amount of protein. For example, our Emirati Granola bar is packed with nuts and seeds. Not just any snack will work for post work out needs. The type and amount of carbs is also important and key. Oloaa is packed with Carbs that come from fibre, which will help keep you feeling fuller for longer.
