Are you an avid granola lover looking for the perfect crunch to add to your yogurt? Are you tired of trying to find the perfect, crunchy, flavorful granola? Then Maureen Maloney has made the granola of your dreams.
Sacred Cow Granola is the latest food craze that is taking Providence by storm. People love it so much they’re calling it “crack-ola.” Having only been sold for about a month, Sacred Cow has taken off and isn’t looking back.
“But what’s so special?” you might be asking yourself. Trust me, it is. I don’t keep a jar of it by my bed for nothing. I sat down with Maloney to get the scoop.
“It’s a cereal, a snack, and a topping. It isn’t just traditional. The flavor is unbelievable- it’s complex because of the Indian flavors in the Spice Mix,” Maloney says. After studying yoga in India for a month with her Guru, Maloney began to love Indian flavors and decided to incorporate them into her Holy Granola Experience.
The granola consists of oats covered in the Secret Spice Mix combined with coconut shavings and dried cranberries. Sacred Cow is the answer to every granola lovers call.
There is only one flavor of granola, but it has been developed to perfection. Maloney, along with Chef Deb Amaral, fine-tuned and scaled the recipe to ensure the granola has the crunch and spice factor everyone has come to know and love.
Sacred Cow has been working to create jobs within the Providence community. So far, about 7 jobs have been created. Employees are hired through Occupational Rehabilitation Services which helps people get back into the workforce. “Everything is baked, packaged and labeled by hand. I always wanted it to be a group effort,” says Maloney.
Sacred Cow is sold in a variety of sizes. There’s a Squat Pint (8-oz.) for $6, a Mason Jar (12-oz.) for $9 and up, and a Grab&Go bag (3-4-oz.) for $5. You can also buy a whole pound of “crack-ola” for $14.99.
Because it’s too good to share, you can buy your own Sacred Cow Granola at Munroe Dairy in East Providence or at Hope & Main in Warren, Rhode Island. You can also find it at select farmer’s markets in the area as well as East Side Market.
