Hi Granola Lovers!
Thanks so much for discovering Bearclaw! I started baking with my sisters as a kid in Pennsylvania, and I've been hooked ever since. I opened my first baking business over the summers as a teen and still get requests to this day. PA is where I developed my lifelong love of homespun recipes and classic American flavors.
When I moved to Los Angeles, I started baking in professional kitchens and attended pastry school at Le Cordon Bleu. In 2012, I became a pastry chef! Between the early mornings and the physical demands of a baker's life, I realized I needed a baked good with sustenance. Enter GRANOLA!
If you look at the granolas in the grocery store, they are mainly composed of simple carbs--all oats and sugar. It's been my mission to fill every Bearclaw product with lots of nuts and seeds for good energy and tons of flavor. The year-round farmers' markets in LA have taught me so much about using the best ingredients. And now that I am a mother of two young kids, I want to feed them snacks with whole ingredients and less refined sugar.
I never planned on dedicating my life to granola, but in hindsight, it makes so much sense. I love pastries, but granola is a habit that you can feel good about every morning. I am very happy to share it with you.
Please devour and claw on!
