Serve breakfast in bed for your lover this Valentine's Day with this decadent Salted Caramel Granola. Made from our Salted Caramel Bliss Ball Mix, this granola is sure to delight as a gesture of love this Valentine's Day. After all, who doesn't love breakfast in bed?
Did you know that our Salted Caramel Bliss Ball Mix is made with roast cashews as the main ingredient? The cashews give the mix a creamy texture and taste. The recipe also includes diced dates for sweetness, and two organic superfoods - lucuma and maca.
Lucuma is known as “gold of the Incas" because it has been used as a traditional remedy in South America for centuries. It's the dried powder from the fruit of the Pouteria lucuma tree native to South America.
We use lucuma in Salted Caramel Bliss Ball Mix for it's sweet, delicate flavour. We also love that it's a healthier alternative to table sugar.
Lucuma contains less sugar but more nutrients than table sugar. More specifically, it has about half the carbs and 75% less sugar than the same amount of table sugar.
Lucuma powder also offers a relatively good amount of both soluble and insoluble fibre, unlike most other common sweeteners, such as table sugar.
The Maca plant, known scientifically as Lepidium meyenii, is sometimes referred to as Peruvian ginseng.
Maca root is highly nutritious and contains essential vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin C, copper and iron. Furthermore, it contains various plant compounds, including glucosinolates and polyphenols.
Another interesting fact about maca is that it is used traditionally to support increased libido! And the science supports that use - at least two published clinical studies have shown that regular consumption of maca leads to increased arousal.
So this Valentine's Day, serve your lover this delicious & nutritious Salted Caramel Granola and know that your breakfast comes with benefits!!
