Product Review: Lizi’s On The Go Treacle Pecan Granola

Wednesday, October 1, 2014

Lizi's Granola reached out to me and gave me the opportunity to review their newest product, Treacle Pecan on the go.  Unfortunately I was on my Whole30 journey, so I asked my friend Laura (who reviewed some muesli for me last year) to try it out.  Thanks Laura!

Product ingredients:  Jumbo Rolled Oats, Lactose-Free Dried Milk (15%), Rapeseed Oil,Desiccated Coconut, Fructose, Pecan pieces (4%), Black Treacle (3%), Oligofructose, Pumpkin Seeds, Sunflower Seeds, Golden Linseeds,Natural Flavouring.

Even though this product contains milk, the levels of lactose is low (< 150 ppm), making it suitable for people with lactose intolerance.  Pretty neat for a filling meal on the go!





As a lover of Granola was really keen to try this new product. However, I must admit I was slightly apprehensive about the dried milk as I usually have yogurt with my cereal. The Granola was tasty but maybe a little bit too sweet for my liking however the milk was actually ok and not as alien as I was expecting! I think if you like tasty hearty breakfast cereal this is definitely one to go for, I really was full up until my lunch which would co-inside with the low glycaemic index of this cereal.  I loved that the packaging comes with a little spoon which is super handy if you are in a rush or having to eat breakfast at work. I am someone who likes to take my time over breakfast so would probably not buy this product normally however I would be keen to try other Lizi products as the cereal was fab. Overall I would give it 7/10.

Lizi's Granola was kind enough to give me this sample.  I was not paid for this review.  All opinions are honest (and of my friend, Laura).
