What’s the Deal With Trail Mix and the AIP?
Granola is traditionally a food used in trail mix, that you can’t eat while following an AIP diet. To be honest, it’s a convenient snack food. That’s why we asked our executive chef to come up with something AIP’ers could also take with them. It was important to make sure our customers didn’t feel like they were missing out. So, she made it extra delicious. We’ve taken POTG’s newest AIP cookie, the Carob Delight Slim Mint Cookie and created a new “granola” or trail mix. It’s great to grab and go as a snack.
What is Carob?
What’s Carob you ask? It’s autoimmune protocol approved and tastes like chocolate. We’d even say it tastes better in this cookie. Carob is actually in the Pea family, growing pods that contain the carob seed. Once the pods are dried the carob seeds are ground into powder which is then used as a chocolate replacement. But just because it isn’t real chocolate doesn’t mean that it isn’t rich and delicious.
