I <3 Bacon Granola. There, I said it.
Nobody makes maple bacon granola like my friend Claudette from Cavegirl Confections. Crunchy roasted nuts, a hint of sweetness from real maple syrup and of course, the savory awesomeness of crispy bacon pieces. I’m not Paleo perfect with my nutrition, and I do like the occasional small piece of dark chocolate or some nuts drizzled with raw honey. Sometimes, I want something a bit more special. The granolas, bars and nut butters from Cavegirl Confections are so delicious and just right for when I want a bit of a treat.
There are lots of Paleo snack companies out there, but Cavegirl stands out from amongst the crowd. I’ve had the opportunity to visit the prep kitchen and watch as Claudette prepares everything in small batches (so you know it’s fresh), artisanal-style, from the best ingredients. She’s a stickler for taste and quality, but don’t take my word for it: In her day job, Claudette’s a sous chef at one of San Diego’s best new restaurants, Sea180. Her flavor combos are spot on, and her eye for detail is evident.
She’s constantly developing new products, so check her site often to see what she’s cooking up! Rumor is that cashew butter and a new butter for making butter (aka “Bulletproof-style” coffee)! Cavegirl Confections ships product around the world, even APO for those serving in our Armed Forces.
