Celebrating Latinx Heritage Month With Savory Granola
Latinx Heritage Month
Latinx Heritage Month takes place September 15 to October 15 each year as a time to celebrate the histories and cultures of Latinx individuals and the contributions they’ve made to their respective countries over the years.
We are proud of our Latin heritage, and to celebrate, we are collaborating with Holistic Health Coach Karla Salinari and Loisa, both are bringing so much education and flavor to the world!
Karla's recipe is truly a snack game changer. She has serious skills in the kitchen and we're so appreciative of her for creating this masterpiece!

Recipe For Healthy Granola
Made with Loisa’s Adobo seasoning (we're big fans!) and The Pinole Project’s Pinole Chia Oatmeal, this is the perfect topper for salads & grain bowls!
Granola is often thought of as a sweet breakfast food but it can be much more than that! Because of its crunchy profile, it’s increasingly being used as a healthy replacement for croutons and bread crumbs.
The reason it works is because granola is easily customizable. You really only need a few core ingredients to build your own granola. From there, you can add whatever you like to achieve the flavor profile you prefer!
Karla added Loisa’s Adobo seasoning to make it irresistibly flavorful, With garlic, oregano, turmeric, sea salt and black pepper, Loisa’s Adobo takes this granola to a whole new level!
Many people ask, is granola good for you? It depends. You want a low sugar, clean ingredient granola. This is exactly that.

There are so many great ways to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. In addition to reflecting on the history and contributions of Latinos in the U.S. and the traditions and histories of Latin American and Caribbean countries, the month is also a great time to celebrate culture through food!
