Honey Almond Granola (certified Gluten Free) made by Living Alive Granola (St. Thomas ON)
In order to ensure her kids ate a healthy diet, creator Stephanie Brown made a special treat called Honey Almond Granola. Based on a long time family recipe, this chewy granola is prepared with local Clovermead’s Summer Blossom Honey from Aylmer ON and local certified gluten free oats out of Thorndale ON from Hilray Farms.
Premium Waffle Mix made by Torill’s Table (Calgary AB)
Torill Myre grew up in Norway and was known for her waffles even as a teenager. After moving to Canada, local moms started asking what made her waffles so darn good. So, in 2007, Torill’s Table Waffle Mix emerged! Made with top quality ingredients, including almond flour, flaxseed meal, whole wheat oatmeal and spices, these waffles are softer, more wholesome and way more flavourful than the Belgian variety. Tip: If you don’t have a shallow, Norwegian style waffle iron, we suggest making (thin) pancakes to enjoy the best results.
Vanilla Latte Almond Butter made by Munch YYC (Calgary AB)
What happens when you combine the nutty flavour of almonds with the rich, full flavour of espresso? You get MunchYYC’s Vanilla Latte Almond Butter of course! A hint of Vanilla Bean and the crunch of Chia Seeds perfectly balance this heart-healthy nut butter. Try it on oatmeal, toast, fruit, or on frozen yogurt as dessert. If you don’t recognize an ingredient, your body won’t either! And you will never find any fillers, emulsifiers or additives in any of their tantalizing flavour combinations.
Chocolate Truffle Cookie made by Koko Pâtisserie (Regina)

Artfully brought together from scratch in the European tradition by Koko Pâtisserie to create an unforgettable treat.
