Sweet and Salty Blueberry Almond Granola

A healthy breakfast granola that combines the sweet flavor of blueberries with the salty flavor of almonds! You will love this Blueberry Almond Granola!

I’ve always been obsessed with  sweet and salty combinations.  I always got kettle corn at theme parks, had a handful of sweet and salty trail mix when I needed a snack and my mom always packed me sweet and salty granola bars for lunch in school.

It’s actually funny because I hate foods that are too sweet and I usually never like adding salt to my food, but when paired together, the sweet and salty flavors are perfect.

When Blue Diamonds sent me samples of their almonds, I quickly remembered the sweet and salty combo that I love so dearly.  I usually use unsalted nuts when making a recipe but I decided to change it up by using these almonds.  The sweetness of the dried blueberries is the perfect match for the saltiness of the almonds.  Needless to say, this Sweet and Salty Blueberry Almond Granola is a winner, and its the perfect way I flavor my adventure!

You know those certain foods that you just can’t live without?  Somedays you tell yourself, “enough is enough” but you always seem to come back for more. Yep, thats the relationship I have with peanut butter.  I LOVE all kinds and flavors and theres not a day that goes by where its not in my daily diet!  I usually go for the natural stuff, but when PB Crave was kind enough to send me their 4 awesome flavors of peanut butter, I shifted my tastebuds to a sweeter, dessert-like spread. photo Let me tell ya something, there is a reason why its called PB crave, because you literally want to slather it on anything!  They have four delicious flavors:

  • Razzle Dazzle: A twisted blend of red raspberry flavor, wild honey, white cocoa powder and dark chocolate! (AKA dessert in a jar!)
  •  Coco Bananas: A tropical blend of yummy banana flavor, cocoa and wild honey! (pb +banana+chocolate=heaven!)
  • Cookie Nookie: a mouth-watering mix of chocolate chips, cookie dough and wild honey! (better than cookie butter!)
  •  Choco-choco: a delicious double dose of semi-sweet, rich dark chocolate and wild honey! (you can’t go wrong with this combo!)

Love Grown Foods Product Review

I am obsessed with granola, like I eat it every day with yogurt for a snack.  I’ve always love it, but recently started to back off on certain brands because of the added sugar that they contained.  Thankfully, Love Grown Foods sent me some samples of their amazing granola and more!  All their products are free of GMO, high fructose corn syrup, and hydrogenated oils (aka. trans fats).  I am beyond excited to share this product with you guys!
