So as you will probably know, I began my vegan lifestyle and consequently this blog became a vegan recipe blog nearly 2 years ago now but I quite often post paleo-friendly and grain-free recipes too.
So when Lucy Rocks contacted me and to tell me about their Pegan granola, I was so excited to try it out and to work with a company who match my way of eating!
Lucy Rocks is a new brand, based in London and is the sister company of Alara Wholefoods, who have been around for over 40 years. They decided to create something that was missing for all those people on a paleo diet: A cereal alternative.
I was sent two flavours to try, which I talk about below and also have a couple of boxes to giveaway to one lucky winner… So scroll down to the bottom to enter the giveaway now!
The first granola I tried was the ‘Glowing Granola‘ which is made with beetroot powder, coconut pieces, mulberries, apple, buckwheat and a mixture of nuts & seeds. It’s gently sweetened with coconut blossom, dates and banana powder.
(I was a little concerned about the banana powder as I have a banana allergy and can only tolerate small amounts that have been cooked or processed. Thankfully – no reaction!)
Isn’t it beautiful? That bright pink makes it look like dried rose petals and makes for a really uplifting breakfast!
Taste: When I first opened the package, I thought the beetroot smell was quite strong and I wasn’t sure I was going to like it but it was actually SO delicious!
It has a lovely subtle sweet and earthy flavour that pairs really well with fresh fruit. I served mine with strawberries, almond milk and coconut yoghurt for a hearty breakfast bowl. Lovely.
The ‘Golden Granola‘ is made with apricot, golden berries, mulberries, mixed nuts & seeds, buckwheat and coconut chips.
Again, it’s gently sweetened with coconut blossom, dates and banana powder.
Taste: This was my favourite of the two. I could definitely eat this straight from the box as a snack!
It has that classic comforting granola taste and was delicious served with fresh coconut yoghurt and fruit. I layered it into glasses to create a breakfast parfait, ‘cos I was feeling fancy…
