There is much controversy about what our gluten free granola is? Is it truly a granola snack? Or is it a cereal? Some eat it one way, others eat it another. That is one of the things we think, makes it great! It can be enjoyed in so many different ways. Since many of you eat it as a breakfast, we have decided to celebrate National Cereal Day by highlighting some of the amazing photos you, our loyal customers have shared with us on Instagram! We love to see all the different ways each of you enjoy our products, and we thank you for sharing! Happy National Cereal Day!
It is March Maple Madness time!! What better way to bring on the maple-ness than to recreate one of my previous recipes Apple Crisp with some Maple Oats!
5-7 small apples This time I only had 4 apples but this just means more topping per apple! (No complaints here!)
2 packets of Bakery On Main Maple Instant Oatmeal
1/2 cup of Organic Brown Sugar (If you want you can use 1/3 cup and also add a tbsp of maple syrup!)
1 tsp of Cinnamon
1 tsp of Nutmeg
1/2 cup of melted butter ( I used Earth Balance non-dairy spread)
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degree C).
2) Place the sliced apples in a large baking pan. Pour small amount of water in pan.
3) Combine the oatmeal, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and melted butter together. Crumble evenly over the apple mixture.
4) Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for about 45 minutes
This recipe is simple and so delicious. Enjoy by itself or a scoop of your favorite ice cream! A great fit would be this Vanilla Maple ice cream by Arctic Zero, or for a dairy free option, any of these desserts by So Delicious.

We have another decadent guest recipe from one of our granola lovers. We noticed Samantha’s recipe right away as it is not everyday we see our product featured as part of a cheesecake recipe. She was happy to share some gluten free happiness by sharing this recipe with us! Oh, and not to worry this recipe is completely gluten free!
Here’s what Samantha had to say.
“Hello! I’m so happy you guys loved my little creation and would love to share it with you. I fell in love with your product, I’ve eaten it everyday since I’ve bought it. ☺ Ingredients and instructions as follows:
4 large/medium strawberries
1/4 cup non-far cottage cheese
1 stevia packet
Optional: 1 Tbs. Chocolate PB2
Cut the tops and centers out of the strawberries. In a small bowl mix stevia packet into cottage cheese and mash a little. Stuff mixture into the strawberries. With the back of a spoon… Smash granola into crumbs and sprinkle on top of the stuffed strawberries. Drizzle Chocolate PB2 over them.
So so simple but seriously curbs my craving for cheesecake and cheesecake crust! :-)”
Sounds delicious right? Be sure to follow Samantha on Instagram as well as she has plenty more great recipes to discover!
Thanks again for sharing Samantha, keep an eye out in the mail for something from us!

Happy Presidents Day everyone! Hopefully, you have the day off so you can relax and read our blog post of course!
This Everyday Health article inspired me to put together a list of Presidential worthy gluten free treats that align with each of their favorite snacks.
History has George Washington pegged as a fan of cherry pie, so obviously this gluten free cherry pie recipe would be perfect for him. However, the Everyday Health article lists Hazelnuts as George Washington’s snack of choice. If you ask me, it seems our very own Hazelnut Chocolate Cherry Truebar would be a win win for our nations first leader!
Apparently Thomas Jefferson had a fascination with vanilla ice cream and would even make his own recipe for his guests. Although homemade is great, we are certain, TJ would fall head over heels for the vanilla maple ice cream from our friends at Arctic Zero. We did!
William Howard Taft
President Taft was our 27th President as well as our 10th Chief Justice of the United States. He was the only person in our history to serve in both those offices. President Taft was also quite fond of almonds, that’s right good ‘ole almonds. Nothing wrong with eating them just the way they are, unless you are carrying them around in your pocket; the way President Taft was said to. Try our Hazelnut Chocolate Almond or Apricot Almond Chai Truebar, less moving parts and you’re sure not to miss them in your pocket while doing the wash!
Franklin D. Roosevelt
FDR with much surprise favored the fruit cake! I know, it would never be my snack of choice but as Everyday Health put it, FDR was very modest man with classic taste. Good for him, and I respect it! So here you are Franklin, a gluten free fruit cake recipe in your honor! However, if you are every craving a cake with a little more, shall we say chocolate? Check out my colleague Whitneys recipe for a Truebar inspired Raspberry Chocolate Almond Cake!
Jelly Beans were the sugary snack Ronald Reagan would eat whenever he had the chance. In fact for his 1981 inauguration, there were three and a half tons of jelly beans shipped to the White House! Additionally, during President Reagans tenure, Jelly Belly Beans were served in the Oval Office and Airforce One, in fact a special holder was designed for the planes so the jelly beans would not spill during turbulence. If you visit the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California you can see a portrait of President Reagan made up of 10,000 Jelly Belly Beans! The best part about these colorful and sweet snacks? They are gluten free, peanut free, dairy free, fat free and vegetarian friendly as well as certified Kosher! Jelly Beans were good enough for Ronald Reagan and they are good enough for me!
Enjoy the rest of your President’s Day!
For better living,
