Granola-maker Tracey Solomon was never a granola person growing up. But when she started Flatbush Granola, her sister reminded her that they grew up around 'healthy' cereals as kids. Their parents used to try and get them to eat Red River Cereal, Muesli, or Cream of Wheat when they'd much rather have eaten Fruit Loops or Frosted Flakes...sigh...childhood. It was a long and winding road, but in recent years Solomon got tired of eating the over-processed stuff and started experimenting with her own breakfast recipes.
Granola-making was kickstarted in the early 2000's when Solomon sampled an amazing granola at a gourmet food store on the West Coast. It was a harmonious blend of all these nuts and fruits and she broke the bank buying many, many bags to bring back home to New York. But that supply eventually came to an end and she got tired of asking her BFF to ship it to her across oceans and seas. Her granola love affair was on pause for the moment.
Some time later, while visiting another good friend in Hawaii, Solomon was treated to her slamming homemade granola. This was it! She demanded a lesson and after some excellent tutoring and a LOT of eating, she was anxious to get back to Brooklyn and try her hand.
Friends, family, colleagues and clients have long been the recipients of Solomon's granola making and now she's delighted to share her personal granola blends with you, each one made from the heart. It's another way to spread love, the Brooklyn way and she hopes you enjoy!
