Thunderflower Kitchen : handmade granola

Since adapting to a vegan diet I am certainly trying so many more foods I would never have tried before. I have become a great fan of Granola and right now my favourite is the handmade one from Thunderflower Kitchen.

It is important that we ensure we feed our bodies with the nutrients and vitamins we need. Nuts, seeds and fruit are all great foods and a great way to start your day. I like to mix my granola with a dairy free yogurt, but you could have it with milk or even have it dry if you prefer to snack on it throughout the day.

The granola contains toasted oats, nuts, seeds, dried fruit and maple syrup. I love maple syrup! It is 100% natural and vegan friendly and only 180 calories per serving.

I find having a bowl of this in the morning helps to fill me up until my mid morning snack. It tastes so good and really makes you happy knowing all the goodness you are fueling your body with.

I have tried other granola before but not really been sold on it, but this one tastes really great compared. I like to alternate between this and porridge for my breakfasts at the moment. Thinking of warming up some almond milk and trying that with my granola in the morning.

What is your go to breakfast right now?

    I usually decide once I’ve checked my blood sugars. If low, which is rare, I will have wholemeal toast or porridge oats. If high then some form of protein as it helps bring it down. Like boiled eggs, or scrambled eggs. I love the sound of the Granola though, shame it doesn’t say on their website how much carbs/of which sugars are in it. 🙂

    I haven’t really ever got to grips with Granola, it’s always been a bit boring and tasteless to me. But I’d like to try it with yoghurt and fruit and see x

    I love granola! My favourite breakfast is for sure pancakes but as a more practical choice it’s usually scrambled eggs most of the time!

    Almost everyday without fail, for me it’s avocado and tomato on toast. The only time I miss this is if the avocados aren’t ripe, then it’s good old peanut butter instead.
