Our Range of Luxury Handbaked Gluten and Wheat Free Food Keto Macadamia & Coconut No Added Sugar Fig & Almond Cashew, Almond & Cinnamon Date & Banana Ancient Grains Cranberry Coconut & Chia Seed Apricot & Walnut Our Story... We started our food business in Dublin, Ireland in 2013, baking in my home kitchen and selling at our local farmers markets and local shops. Such was the demand that we outgrew our kitchen in a few weeks. Today our award winning granola is produced in a gluten free bakery (BRC Grade AA) in Ireland which has allowed us to scale up to meet demand from supermarkets, convenience stores and food service customers in Ireland, UK, France, Spain, Norway, Finland, and Singapore. We have created the ultimate, most scrumptious granola by blending the finest pure jumbo oats, toasted nuts and seeds, plump fruits, infused with treacle, honey and natural vanilla all hand-baked in small batches Perfect at all times of the day, our Granola is a healthy luxurious breakfast with milk or natural yoghurt or sprinkled on porridge, a moreish topping on fruit crumble or icecream, or a healthy snack to keep you going during your busy day Maria featured on the Today Show on RTE. CASHEWMy Granola arrived after only 2 days and I must say it is the nicest granola I’ve ever tasted and great value for money! Highly recommended ! – Amazon Customer NASI really enjoy the range of ingredients in this granola and it gives me the energy I need without all the usual additives. – Christine B LovelyThese are lovely. I use whole oats in my flapjack recipe with chopped blueberries and add a small amount from this granola pack. They are lovely! I would use all of this instead of oats but it is too expensive so I can only afford to use a small amount in each batch. I would thoroughly recommend these packs because they are extremely healthy and made with good quality ingredients – J R Ancient grainsWhy or why did I think that trying this granola/muesli after work is a great idea….juts a tiny bowl, I said, just a couple of spoonfuls, just to see what it tastes and feels like….half a pack of muesli and half a bottle of milk later…WHYYYYYYYYY? AAAAA! Why is this soooo good? Ok, this particular one..YES, they have more flavours! Awful! Has a hint of apple and cinnamon pie and is bursting with flavour, popping with crunch, while clusters of raisins are gooey and juicy! My, oh my! This is most certainly my new all times favourite cereal and with 171 kcal per 100 grams – why did I not hear of this before? – ShopaholicsForever81x CranberryI bought a 4 pack of Cranberry, Coconut and Chia Seed Granola about a month ago. This is a really delicious breakfast; a lovely combination of coconut, seeds, oats and cranberries. A great combination of natural ingredients. I love the crunchiness of the oats and the addition of the coconut and cranberries add just enough sweetness. I went on holiday for a week and when I came back, my family had eaten almost all of the cereal I had bought. As this has been so popular in our house, I am going to order the other flavours. Really glad I tried this granola; it is a very filling, tasty breakfast!! – Katherine Foxall Gorgeous!Cannot believe how nice and healthy this product is! Incredibly good value & the great quality of the ingredients is noticeable! Really happy that there’s no added palm oil & love that all packaging is recyclable as this is so important to me. Overall very satisfied & will be repurchasing. – Shannon Do you miss granola?This is perfect for those who are on a ketogenic diet and miss the granola. Absolutely hits the spot. It is really low carb. The price may look high but regarding what went into it (eg nuts and coconut flakes) the cost is about right. It is a small price to pay if you want a low carb granola! If I was the producer I would go a bit easy on the cinnamon or offer it both with and without cinnamon. Overall, it is impressive! – Uykusuz Lovely Keto/low carb cereal optionI am not a breakfast person so usually i do IF mon-friday. On weekend I usually have a brunch, but I am just tired of eggs for brunch so needed a change. I really really enjoyed it with almond milk. I will check blood sugars b4 and after and will update the review later. I will repurchase. This is coming from a lady who has tried so many keto cereal options without success. – Lolly Something different for breakfast!If you are on a Keto diet, no doubt you will get fed up with bacon & eggs or salmon & avocado everdsy for breakfast. So, at last there’s an alternative, Maria Lucia’s Keto Granola. A tasty blend of luxurious ingredients, macademia nuts, coconut, seeds and cinnamon. It’s delicious, smells divine and texture is perfect, great Keto friendly product. – Susan Byron No more eggs for breakfast yayBags were smaller than I expected. But with the portion at 30 g it’s enough for a month. Upon opening the bag I loved the smell it looked good I added it to alpro plain with coconut and I must say I loved it great texture and flavour. I look forward to breakfast now will definitely buy again just wish it wasn’t as expensive as it is. – Patricia Keto without the crapActually amazing!! So hard to find keto Food stuff without the added crap. This is like something I could have created at home from fresh ingredients, but without the hassle of doing it at home! My last attempt ended up cremating my granola attempt as I took my eye off it. Much easier to buy this, and not having to negotiate on taste or quality! – Mrs. S. R. Hines Need some inspiration?

The names muesli and granola are often used interchangeably but are actually quite different, granola is made by mixing the dry ingredients; nuts, seeds, oats spices with oil and sweetener and baking in the oven whereas muesli is raw and without any liquids added. In the manufacture of granola sometimes rapeseed oil, olive oil or coconut oil are used whereas bigger manufacturers use vegetable oil which is cheaper. All Maria Lucia Bakes products are made with high quality rapeseed or coconut oil. The oils are mixed with sweeteners such as honey, maple syrup, agave syrup instead of sugar like some bigger brands use. We have toasted mueslis in our range where we toast very lightly some ingredients to add a little crunch and enhance the flavours. Is granola fattening? On average a portion of our granola is around 180 calories plus either milk or yoghurt and that is for 40g. On it’s own in a bowl it doesn’t look very much, but once fruit and yoghurt, containing protein, is added then it is quite filling. Most of us probably are used to pouring much larger portions than that into a bowl as if it was cornflakes. Granola is filling and will keep you full for longer down to the oats, nuts and seeds. Calorie wise it does add up, so we’d recommend adding yoghurt and fruit and measuring out those portions ! What’s the best way to eat granola? Sprinkled on greek yoghurt with summer berries is granola at it’s best or a heaped spoonful on a bowl of creamy porridge in wintertime for added crunch and flavour livens up your healthy breakfast routine. What’s best with granola - milk or yoghurt? Granola tastes wonderful with dairy or nut milk or yoghurt, especially Greek yoghurt. It tends to be more filling with yoghurt because of the protein. How about trying a combination of both? Can you make granola bars from granola cereal? You can add nut butter and coconut oil to granola, press very firmly into a tray and chill or freeze, slice up into bars. Using our No Added Sugar granola is an option so that you can add your own sweetener such as honey or for a vegan treat add maple syrup. Cookies What do gluten-free cookies taste like? Buttery crumbly taste and texture from Irish grass fed butter and the right level of sweetness from the finest Belgian chocolate chips that are evenly distributed through the cookies. They are soft but still have some crunch. Delicious with a nice cuppa. What kind of flour is used in gluten-free cookies? The gluten free flour mix used in our cookies is a special blend of soy, maize and rice. How many calories are in a gluten-free cookie? Each of our mini cookies contain only 40 calories. Keto Cereal How can you make a cereal keto friendly? Most cereals contain grains in some form or other that are high in carbohydrates. Maria’s keto granola is grain free, made with coconut flakes, seeds, nuts, spices, vanilla and coconut oil all of which are low carb and suitable for someone on a keto diet or for diabetics. None of the ingredients will spike your blood sugar. What can you eat with keto cereal to make it low-carb? To keep your bowl of cereal low carb or suitable for keto diets simply add a full fat Greek Yoghurt and add a drizzle of double cream to keep your healthy fats up. Also delicious with strawberries, blueberries and other low carb fruit. What sweeteners are used in Keto cereals? Many keto cereals on the market have artificial sweeteners. Maria Lucia Bakes keto cereals are unsweetened, instead the flavour comes from coconut oil, vanilla, cinnamon and lots of high fat nuts. What else can I make with Keto cereal? Add keto granola to low carb cakes or bread recipes. Crush keto cereal in a food processor, add melted butter and use for a keto cheesecake mix.
