Review, Giveaway, and a Discount: Ambrosial Harvest Muesli + Granolas

Cereal is one of America's favorite breakfast foods. It's one of my favorites, too! 

Starting the day with a bowl full of sugar and refined grains, however, is a questionable health decision. Sugary breakfast cereals aren't good for energy levels or blood sugar levels, they don't contribute much other than empty calories to your nutritional needs, and they're just not 'breakfast of champions' material. On the other hand, a bowl full of twiggy bran that both looks and tastes like shredded cardboard isn't satisfying anyone's cereal craving.

Luckily, there are healthy cereals that both taste great and are great for you!

Ambrosial Granola

I love Ambrosial Harvest cereals! Ambrosial Harvest makes whole grain granolas and muesli that are all USDA organic, gmo-free, gluten-free, vegan, certified kosher, free of refined sugars, and full of heart-healthy omega 3 fatty acids. 

As a bonus, they're also local! Ambrosial Harvest granolas are made right here in New York!

Ambrosial Muesli Review

I love the creative flavors - their muesli has goji berries, big flakes of shredded coconut, generous pumpkin and sunflower seeds sprinkled throughout, and filling whole grain oats.

I'm half-German, so I grew up on muesli for breakfast and it has long been a favorite. This one didn't disappoint! While I would have liked a bit more of the dried fruits (I loooove dried fruits) the balance was sweet enough and the combination of flavors was delicious! I love it soaked in milk for 15-20 minutes, so the oats start to soften, but don't turn to glop.

I liked the granolas even more than the muesli, though!

Ambrosial Granola Review

The most 'traditional' granola flavor is the apple walnut granola, but even that has quinoa and flax mixed in with the whole grain oats. I really like the combination of grains and it doesn't hurt that quinoa is a great source of protein when it comes to grains!

I loved the other two unconventional flavors.

Healthy Breakfast Ideas

I would have never thought to add basil to a sweet granola and pair it with honey and almonds, but it's brilliant! I love that this is a really crunchy, chunky granola - some of the chunks were bigger than my thumb! It's a perfect snacking granola.

Whole grain breakfast cereals

Rosemary has always been something that goes on potatoes to me, so this one surprised me, too. But it's so good! I love pecans and the rosemary pairs with really well with them. It's just the right amount of savory in my sweet. 

I also really liked that they used ancient grains and protein-rich legumes - peas, lentils, quinoa, amaranth, and millet are all in there, in addition to the whole grain oats. It's unusual, unique, healthy, and so delicious! I loved pairing this one with raisins and greek yogurt.

These granolas and muesli aren't just for breakfast - check out these fun recipes for everything from a creative lentil soup to a crunchy spin on banana bread! Overall, these are some of my new favorite cereals and are definitely going into the regular rotation.
