Latest from New Zealand! Everyone loves peanut butter! From the most southerly-southern reaches of Stewart Island to the far northern tip of Cape Reinga, Kiwi’s can’t get enough of the roasted, golden goodness. These little islands are besotted with the stuff. To be honest, the granola makers at Hubbards aren’t immune from the nutty obsession. So…we took a road trip to get help from some friends to help us crack the nut (for pun spotters…yip, that’s one!) of capturing this goodness in our granola. 633km later, we ended up at the window of Fix and Fogg, the Welly-based lawyers and PB afficionados, who helped us create this crunchy explosion of peanuts with a scoop of peanut butter. That’s our journey, but your journey today is just beginning. So fuel up with a peanut butter fix and get going!

Sometimes life is as hectic as a bustling city: busy brain, calendar grid-locked, to-do lists honking for attention… On days like this you need a breakfast that’ll allow you to fly high above the noise with steely determination.

Raspberry, Cranberry & Coconut Granola
Our masked heroine soars high in the sky like the elegant Kea she is, eyes darting, spying out the ripest raspberries and cranberries she swoops to pilfer armloads of the jewel like fruit from the fields below. Our granola master (the brains of the operation) then combines them with crunchy nuts and seeds, to create this exquisite granola that Keas would approve. So open this pouch up and try our famous loot. What a birdy beautiful way to start your day.
Pistachio, Almond & Chia Seed Granola
Here at Hubbards we’re not quite as old as Le Cordon Bleu, but for 30 years our culinary breakfast artists have been perfecting the ultimate morning dish. The poshest of noshes, we’ve summoned the finest of the nut gamily to join a textural extravaganza in bringing the fruit-free, restaurant-worthy joy to your tastebuds. If this were a restaurant, our description might read: “Vibrant line caught pistachios toasted over a slow fire together with seasonally harvested almonds, a smattering of chia and finished with fragrant vanilla notes.” Personally, we’d probably explain things a bit more casually than that, but either way, we urge you to book a breaky reservation and tuck into what might just be the world’s finest granola.
Black Doris Plum & Almond Granola
How do we create granola here at Hubbards? A good amount of breakfast know-how, green-thumbed ingredient knowledge and a pinch of plum luck to ensure everything comes together! Take this wish list of ingredients for example: almonds, raspberries, amaranth, buckwheat and sunflower seeds required some nifty recipe engineering (and a pinch of good luck of course!) to make a deliciously crunchy experience. So it is only fitting that honoured it in the best way we know how, by adding freeze-dried black doris plum, to make this granola all come together. So what are you waiting for? Create your own wish list…with a spoonful of plum luck, it might all come true.
Cacao, Blueberries, Cranberries, Blackberries & Black Doris Plum Granola
When it comes to soulmates, they say opposites attract. Nothing could be truer of cacao and berries. One might call them the original celebrity couple, with a romance that spans centuries. But what makes their love story so captivating and so deliciously addictive? Our breakfast inventors (the great romantics that they are) simply say it’s the old adage “opposites attract.” Cacao warms the soul, while berries and plum cut through the richness, delivering the vibrancy that cacao needs to sing. Like any great pair, they bring out the best in each other. Have a taste and you might find they bring out the best in you too.
Fix & Fogg Everything Butter Keto Granola
We reckon how you start your morning impacts the rest of the day (and in a sense, what you do with your life), so you probably want to kick it off the best way possible. If you’re pondering “how can I start my morning right?” your brain might eventually land on “healthy and delicious.” And if your brain is thinking healthy and delicious, it’ll probably start thinking “Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a keto granola inspired by Fix & Fogg’s Everything Butter?” If so, you’ll be thrilled to know this is just that. A superb combo of healthy nuts and seeds, low in both carbs and sugar. We’ve packed this full of protein, fibre and wondrous Everything Butter crunch. Eat it by the spoonful, or snack by the handful (or tip the pouch into your mouth – go on we’re not looking), then stride on into your morning, day and life.
Gluten Free Raspberry & Maple Granola
The secret to making an incredibly delicious gluten free granola is to get in quick and grab some of the best ingredients. We hunted out buckwheat amaranth and cashews, but they spotted us first and dashed off giggling, leaving us in the dust. Sprinting to keep up, we snagged them together in one happy, wholesome cluster, with a hint of maple to sweeten the deal. To be honest, we’re all still puffing hard – those taste ingredients sure do run fast! But we have rounded them all up now in this pouch to let your taste buds run free. So hurry and put them in your tum.
