Original recipe in Women's Health Mag!

What does Granola Lab have in common with Christina Aguilera? We're both in the March 2016 edition of Women's Health Magazine! The brilliant team behind the book Made in Brooklyn hooked us up with the magazine for this cleverly constructed one-page spread. Dare I say, the Brooklyn Bridge never looked so good!

We contributed an original recipe especially for the piece. It's easy to make and loaded with our favorite (super)seeds: chia, hemp, and flax.

The beauty of making your own granola is that you can customize to your taste. Throw in some chocolate chips for a treat, or dial back on the honey to keep the sugar level down. But if you're too busy, not into baking, or just prefer your favorite Granola Lab flavor, we're here for you, always.

Greenpointers Holiday Market hits 12/6!

Holiday markets are always fun, but we're particularly enthused for Sunday's Greenpointers Holiday Market. Why? Hungarian mulled wine! The NYC-based Hungarian wine importer, Palinkerie, will be on hand to serve up this wintry treat and I, Lab founder Alex, am half Hungarian and ready to devour the food and drink of my mother's homeland at the drop of a hat. 

Come get festive with us on Sunday, December 6 from 1-7 pm. We'll have granola gifts galore, including these cute mason jars. 

It's all happening at 67 West St on the 5th floor. Over 60 vendors!

Help build our kitchen laboratory

When I started Granola Lab back in 2010, I always envisioned I'd have my own little granola factory. After five plus years of working in other companies' kitchens, the dream of a real granola laboratory is finally here! Granola Lab's new home is an airy, light-filled industrial space in Sunset Park, Brooklyn, a blank slate ready to be filled with equipment and stocked with supplies. 

There are many ways for a business to finance a project like the one the Lab is embarking on, including loans and crowdfunding. One solution that combines the best of both these worlds is Kiva Zip, a non-profit, "character based lending" platform that facilitates 0% interest loans to entrepreneurs like myself. Basically, you can support Granola Lab in a very direct and simple way: make a microloan! This week (June 1-5), Kiva will match all loans given by new lenders invited by current borrowers. Since we already get matching funds from the MetLife Foundation, your loan will be three times as helpful! You can lend Granola Lab as little as $5...which you will get back. I would be ever-so-grateful for your support.

Get Gingersnapping: now with candied ginger!

A new day has dawned for one of Granola Lab's original flavors. We've re-formulated Get Gingersnapping, eliminating the raisins and adding in candied ginger for a spicy-sweet punch. It's wicked gingery! 

GGsplitimage_formailchimp

We love raisins, but recognize that they're not universally adored. We've found delicious crystallized ginger bits that should more than make up for any sense of loss felt by the pro-raisin camp. Plus, the new recipe is closer than ever to a gingersnap cookie (without all the sugar). Are you ready to give the new Get Gingersnapping a try? It's 20% off through the end of May (click on the store tab). Our retail partners will begin receiving the new formula soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
