Slipstream Organic Granola
When a cyclist (who owns Slipstream Cycling) from Fort Madison, Iowa teamed up with a pastry chef from Boulder, Colorado, the collaboration resulted in the creation of Slipstream Organic Granola: four delicious varieties of granola that primarily rely on organic wildflower honey as a sweetener.
Mixed by hand and made in small batches, Slipstream Granola is chock full of oats, nuts (hazelnuts and almonds), and seeds (sunflower and sesame) – which makes for a scrumptious, crunchy granola low in sugar (3 – 6 grams of sugar per serving) and high in wholesomeness.
The four varieties include:
Greta’s Blend: The newest blend that is gluten-free and made with coconut oil. The emphasis here is on coconut and cacao blended with nutty, crunchy nuts, seeds, and honeyed clusters.
The granolas can be purchased on-line directly from the company (www.slipstreamorganics.com). Each 12 ounce bag is $6.99. Bulk purchases (5 pounds or more for $7.99 per pound) are also available. Retail outlets – primarily in Iowa – including the Whole Foods Market in West Des Moines (and the Chicago area Whole Foods Markets this summer) also stock the granola in the bulk section and in the packaged pouches. Slipstream Organics can also be found at the infamous Downtown Des Moines Farmers’ Market on select Saturdays from May thru October. See the company website for a complete list of retailers that stock Slipstream Organic Granola.
