When supermarket granola just didn't have that savory, well-seasoned crunch, she decided to make her own..
Meet Nekisia Davis, artisan granola maker & founder of Early Bird Granola in Brooklyn, New York. According to Nekisia, once she gets a food idea in her head she becomes obsessed, testing recipes for months until they are mastered, which is exactly what happened over a year ago when her friend urged her to make homemade granola. The task turned into an obsession - an obsession which led to a new, more wholesome recipe for granola, a recipe so good she decided to turn it into a business. And in Spring 2009, Nekisia began selling her granola at small artisan markets across NYC, promoting her philosophy about eating good, whole foods.
Every bag of Early Bird Granola is handmade, hand-mixed and hand-packed with "salt, olive oil and love...it's all about the love." So come take a peek into Nekisia's kitchen and see how small batch granola gets made. Enjoy!
