What is Granola Butter?
If you're on a super-specific diet, having food options that help you stay on track is always a blessing. If normal butter or nut butter doesn't cut it for you, then Oat Haus' Granola Butter might be what you've been looking for. As per their website -- "It's the first ever spreadable granola! Think the texture of a nut butter, with the warm cinnamon, vanilla, or chocolate granola taste you love. As for how you use it? The possibilities are endless: on toast, in a smoothie, on yogurt, on ice cream, in a sandwich, on a banana, on apples, by the spoonful... find inspiration on instagram or peep the blog for recipe ideas."
Who are the founders?
Ali Bonar, Eric Katz and Ari Schraer are the founders of Granola Butter. Bonar studied Nutritional Sciences at UC Berkeley, Katz worked in the startup scene in Israel and Schraer is a full-time chef. The trio came together to create Granola Butter.
Bonar opened up about why she always felt drawn towards nutrition, seeing that she developed an eating disorder earlier on. "In recovery, I re-introduced nuts into my diet (something I had heavily restricted for years), but my stomach couldn’t tolerate them." she explained on the brand's website. "While repairing my gut, I searched high and low for a healthy and delicious nut-free spread. Nothing really resonated with me, so I decided to create my own, and the world's first oat-based spread — Granola Butter — was born." she added.
What is the cost and how to buy Granola Butter?
Single jars of Granola Butter retails from $12.95 onwards, while you can also buy a 3 jar variety pack from $32.95 onwards on the brand's website. The jars also retail at Harmons, Pressed, Erewhon, Central Market, Whole Foods and Thrive Market. You can use the store locator to find the one closest to you.
Where is Granola Butter now?
Apart from the many giveaways and collaborations that take place on the brand's social media page, Granola Bar recently announced that they are now available at Thrive Market. Their growing in-store presence is sure to help them during their pitch.
Who will steal the deal?
Seeing that Daniel Lubetsky is in the food and beverage industry as well, there is a good chance he might take the bait and help scale the brand.
