Purely Elizabeth - Tasty Granola to Start Your Day [And Giveaway]

I am always a huge fan of granola! It goes great with yogurt and a little goes a long way. So I couldn't wait to try out the granola by Purely Elizabeth. It's a company that is obviously striving to do everything they can to do good for the environment. They are part of 1 Percent for the Planet (a new organization I haven't heard of until now!) and Purely Elizabeth donates 1% of their profits to preserve the health of our planet. Plus they strive to make sure that even their packaging has less of an impact on the environment and uses eco-friendly packaging. Also they purchase from organic farmers, and their products are either natural non-GMO or organic. I love supporting companies that try to make our world a better place, so read more about Purely Elizabeth here.

purely elizabeth, granola, gluten-freeI had the chance to try out granola and even something new to me called Apple Currant. Best of all, their products are GLUTEN-FREE! Woo!

I tried a few different kinds of granola, including Original Ancient Grain Granola (2 ounce bag), Blueberry Hemp Ancient Grain Granola (2 ounce bag), and Cranberry Pecan Ancient Grain Granola (12 ounce bag). I also had the chance to try out Apple Currant Ancient Grain Muesli.

Honestly, I loved all three of the granolas I tried! They are great tasting and not too sweet I didn't think. My bag of cranberry  pecan granola was a full sized bag which lasted a good while for me. I usually mix in a little bit of granola into yogurt and so it lasts a lot longer. I found out there was dried fruit mixed in and dried fruit always gets stuck to my teeth. I would probably choose their original kind if I decide to buy this in stores. For me, the two ounce bag lasted a couple of mornings for me and then the 12 ounce bag lasted a week. But then again I don't give myself a TON of granola in the morning, but just enough so I can comfortably mix some into my morning yogurt.

Then I gave the Apple Currant a try! I did mix this into yogurt as well. At first I didn't enjoy it too much, because I just wasn't sure if I was making it right. But finally I found if I mixed a little bit in with vanilla Greek yogurt, and then added a handful sized portion of the muesli on top and then some honey, I really enjoyed it. It's an acquired experience, though, so I would honestly look up some recipes first for this one.

Overall, I love the Purely Elizabeth Granola - it's gluten-free and the ingredients are great! (Just check out the ingredient's list for the Cranberry Pecan granola - "organic certified gluten-free oats, organic coconut sugar, organic raw virgin coconut oil, organic puffed amaranth, organic quinoa flakes, organic millet flakes, organic pecans, dried cranberries, organic sunflower seeds, organic Salba chia seeds, organic cinnamon, sea salt."
