Twenty Four Zen Granola around the clock: A Review from Gluten-Free Life

March 15, 2012

24 Zen is proud to have been reviewed on the Gluten-Free Is Life website. People are starting to realize what we have known all along: That granola is not just for breakfast anymore. We have reproduced the review in its entirety here for your convenience. Leave us a note on Twenty-4 Aen’s Facebook page and tell us what you think.

Looking for a different way to enjoy granola with your breakfast? I find myself getting into a breakfast cereal rut, but these gluten-free granolas from Twenty-4 Zen certainly add a tasty twist!

These are just 2 of the 3 varieties {image not available] – the third is “Haute Chocolate”. The “Haute Chocolate” is the newest variety & the packaging hasn’t been finished yet.

All 3 of the granolas have unique flavor combinations & textures that left me wanting more. If I had to choose a favorite, I think it is the Mild Chili Mango. I ate these straight out of the package, but they would be great with a touch of almond milk drizzled over the top or paired with Greek yogurt. More about the granola:

Twenty-4 Zen Granola is a balancing, harmonizing granola for those who seek nirvana. It fuses a burst unexpected flavors with gluten-free oats carefully roasted in small, hand made batches. Nature’s treasures of pepitas, sliced almonds, piquant ginger, slightly tart lemon, a sweet zing of mango and chili pleasantly surprise even the most sophisticated palate. Crunch with Intention.

The oats in the granola are from Bob’s Red Mill, though they are switching to a certified gluten-free producer. The granola is produced right here in Columbus, Ohio! How cool is that? The granola can be purchased right from the Twenty-4 Zen website. They take Paypal in addition to credit cards.
