Show Me Some Love!

Not that I need anymore!

You guys are so sweet! Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes yesterday!

No, what I’m really here to talk about is:

L.O.V.E

I’ve fallen…

in love with…

Granola!

What did you think I meant, silly?! 😉

A couple of months ago, a lovely lady by the name of Laura sent me some samples of a new-to-me-granola…ever heard of Love Grown Foods before? If you read many food blogs, I’m sure you have. I swear I felt like the only blogger on the planet who hadn’t tried these babies!

I got three full-sized varieties: 
Sweet Cranberry Pecan, Raisin Almond Crunch, and Apple Walnut Delight

And three minis:
Most importantly, the Cocoa Goodness 🙂

I knew from the moment I opened the package, which flavor I would be trying first!

Sweet Cranberry Pecan

Oh my gosh you guys, I cannot even begin to express how delicious this flavor is…hands down, my favorite one!

It has the perfect amount of sweetness to it and it totally jazzed up a bowl of Almond Dream Praline Crunch (which by the way is equally amazing) and was the perfect compliment to my Pumpkin Bread Pudding Pancakes!

Next up, my second favorite:

Raisin Almond Crunch

Since I was a kid, I’ve always been a big fan of raisin bran.

Ok, maybe I was a weird little kid at times…but don’t worry, I also had my fair share of Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, and Sugar {Coma} Smacks 😉

Anywho, what I’m getting at is this:

Raisin Almond Crunch + puffed kamut + Kashi Heart to Heart =
childhood nostalgia!

Definitely took me back! 🙂

And for more of a substantial breakfast, it added just the right amount of crunch to my pumpkin stuffed French toast!

Love pumpkin and raisins together…and look at those HUGE coconut flakes!

Moving along…

Apple Walnut Delight

I was a little disappointed that the apple flavor didn’t shine through a bit more in this one, so my idea was to pair it with some apple infused oats to amp up the flavor a bit.

It worked!

Tasted like a warm bowl of apple pie…and um, can we just take a moment to appreciate the size of that walnut?

Oh yeah!

And last but not least…

Cocoa Goodness

I was disappointed the most in this flavor. I’ve heard a lot of great things about it, but it just didn’t do it for me. I’m not a chocolate fanatic but I can appreciate a good dark chocolate flavor, but this was a lot more bitter than I anticipated.

Can’t win ’em all I guess…

But I’m totally over it…because you know what? There’s still plenty of LOVE to enjoy!

I only wish the bags were still that full! 🙁

Please note that while Love Grown Foods did send me these samples free of charge, I was not compensated in any way for the above review…

But I’m totally using it as a shameless excuse to plug myself! 😉

As you may or may not know, I’m in the running to be the next Love Blogger…basically a title that will give me the opportunity to spread the LOVE every day here on the blog. And you know what that means?

C’mon, it’s not that hard…

More LOVE filled recipes from your favorite broccoli kisser! 🙂

So do me a favor and pop on over to Love Grown’s facebook page and like my picture show me some LOVE!
