Friday Favorite:Bob’s Red Mill Whole Grain Apple Blueberry Granola

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola is a quick and easy breakfast that is loved by all.

Packed with whole grain gluten-free oats, it is a perfect way to start your day and fill your belly. I love to sprinkle some on top of my favorite yogurt or cultured coconut milk, or even enjoyed traditionally by being poured in a bowl and enjoyed topped with milk and fresh cut fruit.

Another bonus is that this crunchy cereal is easy to find, since it is carried by most major grocery stores.

All of these reasons are why this week’s Friday Favorite is awarded to Bob’s Red Mill’s Whole Grain Apple Blueberry Granola – Congratulations!

Win-It-Wednesday: Kimberley’s Own All Natural Granola

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

If you’re looking for an all-natural gluten-free cereal that your whole family will fall in love with, you’re going to really like this week’s Win-It-Wednesday sponsor on

Kimberley’s Own All Natural Granola has pure (gluten-free!) goodness in every bite! So many gluten-free granola’s are mostly made up of gluten-free grains, sprinkled here and there with a couple of nuts, pieces of dried fruit or seeds. How Borrring!

But Kimberly’s Own All Natural Granola is different. Each bag is packed with OVER 40% of the good stuff. You know… things like dried apricots, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, Goji berries, almonds and even raw cacao nibs.  This is a true artisanal line of gourmet cereal that are great by the handful, as cereal, a topping for yogurt and ice cream, and also in recipes.

Made in Canada under the strictest of guidelines, Kimberley’s Own Granola guarantees the use of PURE oats (Pure oats means that they are sourced from a manufacturer that only produces oats thus avoiding cross contamination from gluten – wheat, spelt, kamut, rye, barley or triticale.)

Kimberley’s Own come in three (3) varieties: Just Seeds, which contains over a 40% blend of a variety of seeds – including chia seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds; Original Blend, which contains over 40% nuts, seeds and fruit – including dried apricots & cranberries, Goji berries, almonds, and sunflower seeds; and my favorite, Nibs & Nuts, which contains over 40% raw cacao nibs and walnut (who said a girl can’t enjoy a little chocolate in the morning for breakfast?)

More bonuses? Kimberley’s Own Granolas are also free of corn and dairy, and are vegan. They also don’t contain any oil or water (yes… no oil!) or refined sugars. They’re nutrient dense, high in fiber & protein, cholesterol free and do not have any added sodium. All this… yet they so delicious. =) Pure goodness.

All these reasons are why I am so very excited that Kimberly’s Own All Natural Granolas are this week’s WIN-It-Wednesday sponsor on

A total of four (4) BeFreeForMe members will be selected to win a prize pack of the three (3) varieties of Kimberly’s Own All Natural Granolas, plus a bonus pack of recipe cards. Two winners will be randomly selected from the entries received before Tuesday, February 26, 2013 at 11:59 PM EST, and two more winners will be randomly selected to win from the entries received between Wednesday, February 27 and Tuesday, March 5, 2013 at 11:59 PM. SO – make sure you enter two times to win!

How can you win?

Reply to this blog post and tell us what variety of Kimberley’s Own All Natural Granolas you think you’d like the best (Me? I’m still sticking with the Nibs & Nuts… the cacao nibs and walnuts remind me of the chocolaty taste of a hot fudge sundae sprinkled with walnuts!)

Good Luck, remember to believe in pure goodness, and as always…
