We think it's our ingredients and how we make it that makes our Yockenthwaite Granola so special
So, what's in it?
OUR OATS are rolled fresh from the groat just prior to cooking and we do this ourselves. It's an extra process we know, but we believe it makes a huge difference both nutritionally and to flavour, just think about freshly ground coffee or spices, there's no comparison, fresh is best!
OUR FLOUR, either wheat or *spelt is wholegrain, we use wholegrain because it's got all the goodness still in there, nothing taken out, but more importantly, nothing added back in!
(*Spelt grain is an ancient grain and forerunner of modern wheat. A cross between Emmer wheat & Goat grass and favoured by many people for it's flavour and digestibility. Spelt was known by the Roman Legionnaires as 'the marching grain' which probably says quite a lot about it's properties!)
RAW HONEY and olive oil are then mixed together, these are the binding ingredients, and apart from a sprinkling of sesame seeds, a smidgen of Madagascan vanilla and a pinch of sea salt, that's it, the base.
WE’VE 4 DIFFERENT VARIETIES, two with nuts, one plain and one ginger. The Not so Sweet varieties are sweetened with just the raw honey and we add some un-refined light muscovado sugar to the Original Nutty, it's only a little, but we love the richness and fudgy flavour it adds.
