MixMyGranola Giveaway!

Well you have seen MixMyGranola floating all over blogs I am sure! About a week ago I was offered the chance to create my own granola, and was all over it!

13

My mix, Bobbi’s Granola Greatness contained

  • Low-Fat Granola
  • Dried Bing Cherries
  • Goji Berries
  • Dried Blackberries
  • Roasted Cashews
  • Organic Flax Seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Hemp Seeds

I really loved being able the see the nutritional and cost information for my mix as I put it all together! There are so many options it was hard at times, I think I could have spent like $40, but I had a $20 Gift card so I needed to refrain(it was hard).

I loved that I got to come up with my own name for my Granola Mix, and the label was personalized just for me. This would make the best GIFT, and it shows you put some thought into it;) You can also buy pre-mixes as well, and their is even one for runners!

I tried my mix in my yogurt….mmmmm…I LOVED IT! Can’t wait to put it in my Oats!
