The Granola We All Fell In Love With… [Giveaway!]

Just when you thought it was safe… here comes another post referencing the Blend retreat!

Okay, this post isn’t really about Blend, but it IS about an amazingly awesome product that I found while at the retreat.

If you ask any of the attendees from the Blend retreat about the lemon blueberry granola, they’ll probably have to wipe a little bit of drool off their chins. This is one item that I’ve seen all over Instagram, blogs, Facebook- you name it. After all, it was the inspiration for these babies, which I’m a little obsessed with.

Meet Nature’s Indulgence Granola:

I can’t remember exactly when I dug into the little sample pack I received- but I know that it was instant love when I took that first bite. It was unlike any other granola I’d ever had! And if you look at the ingredients, you’ll see why:

INGREDIENTS: Oats, Millet, Sugar, Agave Nectar, canola oil, lemon juice, blueberries,citric acid, and salt

That’s it! I’ve never been a huge millet fan, but I love it in this granola! I really think that having that grain in the recipe makes this product truly unique. After hoarding my little sample pack of the lemon blueberry granola for a few days (how did I make it last that long??) I did a little investigating on Nature’s Indulgence’s website to figure out how I could quickly get more!

Here is their story:

Good, Small, Simple
Taste the difference a hand-crafted granola can make in your day. Our granolas are made in small batches, using fresh and natural ingredients. The result is a granola like no other. One bite and you’ll understand the difference as each ingredient combines to deliver the perfect bite of crunch and flavor.Our mission is to bring the best to your table! From the farms of our neighbors, to the hands of our chefs, we ensure nothing but the best through every step of the process. Every ingredient is specially selected for its flavor, quality, and harmony with the other ingredients.

Nature’s Indulgence is a family-owned business based in Ogden, Utah.

I like that. :)

I was pleased to find out that they carry five different flavors, and each of them sounds even more enticing that the next! I then contacted the company stating how awesome the granola was and that it was a huge hit at Blend. I may have also mentioned a little bit about how much I loved the Lemon Blueberry flavor. They got back to me immediately and sent me a nice little package in the mail, including the full-size box of the Lemon Blueberry granola, shown in the photo above. Score!

As an added bonus, I also got a few sample packs of each of the different flavors:

The five flavors: Mango Tango, Cranberry Almond, Nut Berry Maple, Lemon Blueberry and Vanilla Nut

I wasted no time and made Greg join me in taste-testing each of the flavors. And we both agreed- as amazing as Lemon Blueberry is, Nut Berry Maple is the best. Just look at it!

That’s all kinds of goodness right there.

I’m practicing incredible self-control right now by not devouring all of the granola at once.

Because I love this granola so much, I want to share it with all of you! If you order it from their online store, use the code OAS10 to get 10% off of your order! This code is good for three different uses per person- so you can re-stock as needed! They also have gluten-free varieties of several of the flavors.

And, because I’m feeling so generous, ONE lucky reader will receive a shipment of all 5 sample packs from yours truly! Just leave me a comment below telling me which flavor you’re most excited to try. A winner will be chosen randomly on Sunday, May 27th at 8pm EST.

I’m telling you- this is a contest you want to win. :)

GOOD LUCK!

*Contest open to U.S. residents only

    I would love to try the nut berry maple or the mango flavor!

  3. Um the Lemon Blueberry just so I know what everyone is talking about :)

  4. Lemon Blueberry! Sounds like a great flavor combo. And what a neat idea to add millet. I started adding the grain to muffins and it’s a nice addition.

  5. Mango Tango sounds good right now. Mango always makes me think of summer and I’m excited for the long weekend which I hope to spend on the trails and by the pool.

  6. OMG!! That Lemon Blueberry still haunts my dreams!!

  7. Vanilla nut sounds the best to me. But they all sound delicious!

  8. YUMMM lemon blueberry!!!! I would love to try them all

  9. I hadn’t heard of this granola before, but their flavor combinations and simple ingredients are awesome! Lemon blueberry would probably be my first pick. I am such a sucker for anything lemon. :)

  10. Oh granola how I love thee!!!!! :) I’d love to try Vanilla!! I’ve switched to drinking Silk Light Vanilla instead of milk and I think the pair together would be heaven in my mouth – or maybe the nut berry maple and vanilla would be heaven in my mouth!! Oh boy, now I’m hungry!! ;)

  11. mary allen says:

    They all sound delicious!! I would love to try the cranberry almond!

  12. Lemon Blueberry sounds VERY intriguing! I would love to try that one!

  13. Gotta be Nut Berry Maple–any granola with “Maple” in the name is bound to make me happy!

  14. You know I am a huge granola fan. I’ve never tasted one that comes close to homemade but this looks pretty darn good and I would love to try it. Cranberry Almond sounds great.

  15. They all sound YUMMY! I would love to try them all, but the one that sounds the best is the Lemon Blueberry!

  16. I’m thinking either the Maple, or the MANGO TANGO!! Yum!! I didn’t even know they had so many delicious varieties! So thanks for the edumacation!!! :)

  17. Beings that my wedding cake was lemon with a blueberry filling, I’m super stoked to try the lemon blueberry! And if they had a carrot cake, my husband’s groom’s cake would be taken care of! :)

  18. My husband and I run a blueberry farm with his parents and brother/sister-in-law, so I would love to try the Lemon Blueberry.

  19. Cranberry almond! I’m a sucker for cranberry anything {something to do with growing up surrounded by cranberry marshes…} and almonds are always delish!

    :)

  20. oh I reallllly want to try the lemon blueberry. sounds so amazing!

  21. I totally understand your love! This is probably heresy in the healthy living blog world, but I’m not the biggest fan of granola, and I fell in LOVE with the lemon blueberry. I’ve been rationing out my leftover packets, so winning some more would be awesome! Heaven forbid I fall in love with all of them.

  22. YUM. I definitely used these in my swag cookies. ;) If I win, give my haul to somebody else as this isn’t GF. But it was delicious. Totally worth a tummyache later.

  23. it gets better than the lemon blueberry!?! i MUST try that! haha

  35. Sign me up for the lemon blueberry!

    I’ve never commented before, but just wanted to let you know that I love your blog & I find you very inspiring!

  36. So many choices! You pretty much sold me on the Nut Berry Maple, so that’s the one I would love to try.

  37. Lemon blueberry sounds so summery and delicious! Yum! I’m a silent reader and don’t comment often on blogs. But all your recipes look delicious, you are a warrior in the gym, and your little family is adorable. I’m currently on a wait list for a Golden Retriever puppy. They are only 4 weeks old right now. I’m Golden obsessed! Keep up the good work. I’m a fan. xo

    • Thank you Tara! I have to say- I’m a little jealous that you have a Goldie puppy coming your way. I wish I could make mine small again- just for a day at least! I kept a blog about them when we got them at 8 weeks- http://lauren-beach.blogspot.com – if you start all the way at the beginning, you can read about our adventures in puppy-dom. :)

  38. The nut berry maple looks great to me!

    Thank you.

  39. Nut berry maple.

  40. Nut Berry Maple!!!

  41. Oh my, they all sound amazing! But I think I’d be most excited by the Mango Tango…I just love everything mango, and that’s a very original granola flavor.

  42. MMM lemon blueberry! I LOVE granola though so all of those sound delish

  43. Natasha says:

    I would love to try the Lemon Blueberry, please!

  44. After having the lemon deliciousness at Blend I cannot wait to try other flavors! Any of them will do just fine for me. :)

  45. All of the flavors sound like a wonderful way to start the morning, but the nut berry sounds best. Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. Elizabeth says:

    Hmm…I think the nut berry maple sounds amazing!

  47. OOOH lemon blueberry. they all sound amazing! I am still so sad I could not attend blend :( my life seriously needs to slow down now. :D

  48. Christine says:

    Mango Tango sounds scrumptious!

  49. Wow! They all sound amazing, and I love the backstory to the company you posted. I think Mano tango sounds intriguing.

  50. Ashley @ Freckles & Spice says:

    Im pretty sure I didnt leave blend with enough granola so clearly I need to win! Iove the lemon blueberry so much but the mango one sounds good too.

  51. Lindsey says:

    Definitely lemon blueberry! And a total coincidence-,before I read this, I just ate a plain greek yogurt w/blueberries & True Lemon because I was craving the flavor.

  52. Those sound fantastic! I would love to try them all, but the Nut Berry Maple sounds especially delicious.
