Natalie & IJLB

Once upon a time... I had a fabulous granola in my favorite coffeebar in NY. I instantly felt this was the way to set me off on a happy day. Since I couldn’t find a granola that tasted as light and crunchy, I started experimenting until I found my own favourite recipe. For some years my family and good friend Lien enjoyed homemade granola. But I kept dreaming. ‘What if I shared my instant granola crush with other people? What if I launched my own healthy granola brand? Since three years now, that dream has become reality. My little moments of (morning) happiness have spread out and make my day.

Handmade

Our granola is made by hand in small batches with lots of care. We select our wholesome organic ingredients carefully to guarantee the great bite and taste. You won’t be looking for that symbolic one pecan in the bag, since this granola contains more nuts and seeds than oats. IJLB was founded from the heart and made by people for people.

The team of Les Tartes de Françoise was an immediate fan of our products! They gave us the chance to kickoff in a professional way by renting us a spot and letting us use the oven in their atelier in Antwerp.

IJLB is founded from the heart and made by people for people.

Three years ago the team of Les Tartes de Françoise was an immediate fan of our products! They gave us the chance to kickoff in a professional way by renting us a spot and letting us use the oven in their atelier in Antwerp. In the meantime we moved to a new location and started a cooperation together with Flexpack, a social company specialized in foodpacking. They have the perfect space for us to create an atelier. It is an experienced environment where we are supported on many levels. We hope to continue baking lots of granola and support in a some time this companies goal which is creating real jobs combined with the necessary care for people who have some difficulties in finding one on the regular market.

We like it cracking fresh

Freshly toasted oat flakes, seeds and/or nuts, a granola lavish in both ingredients and taste... just the way we like it.

The bag you buy from your favourite shop comes straight out of our workshop - or almost - and the contents are baked to order, especially for you!

Team IJLB

Team IJLB, that’s us: Natalie, Sare and Els. Every day we are hard at work in our workshop to bake and package your granola. But our team is actually much bigger than just the three of us.

We believe in a network of people and businesses that are exceptional at one specific aspect and we are convinced that working together can only make you better and stronger. For instance, our IJLB workshop would not exist without the fantastic, heartfelt support of the people at Flexpack.

Every single store that sells our products is run by passionate entrepreneurs that help us share our concept with you. Customers can also order online thanks to Elke of Bon Appetit Les Amis and the team at Belgunique.

Didess, an innovative Belgian company, makes our granola easily accessible to the food service industry. Interbio is a cooperative grouping Belgian biofarmers who supplement their fresh produce with authentic artisan bioproduce and they make sure our Brussels and Walloon customers have no trouble finding us.

After all, no IJLB without our die-hard granola fans.
Thank you all!

Ingredients

The wholesome organic ingredients are carefully selected. Every batch is made with lots of attention. If for any reason your IJLB didn’t taste as good as always, don’t hesitate to contact us. When you are allergic be cautious of the nuts. Although oats are glutenfree by nature the used oats can be contaminated by different kinds of wheat. Our granola is made in a bakery where wheat is being used.

What is granola?

Granola was created about a 100 years ago in NY. In order to make oatmeal more attractive, they started baking oats and combining them with several other ingredients. Granola tastes great with yoghurt and fresh fruit, you can combine it with different kinds of milk or just grab a handful to snack away.

Collection

pecan/almond
Natalie’s favourite

This granola finds a nice balance between subtle spices and a touch of natural sweets. The soft taste of sliced almonds and lovely chunks of pecans come as a delicious extra.

Ingredients
Oatflakes*37%, pumpkin seeds*, sunflower seeds*, grated coconut*, pecans*8%, almond flakes*8%, maple syrup*, agave syrup*, spices*, seasalt

*organic BE-BIO-01

cashew/banana
Lien’s favourite

The bananachips and whole cashews give this granola a bit more bite. Natural thickened applejuice gives it a fresh and fruity flavour.

Ingredients
Oatflakes*33%, pumpkin seeds*, sunflower seeds*, grated coconut*, cashew nuts*8%, banana chips*5%, maple syrup*, thickened applejuice*, spices*, seasalt

*organic BE-BIO-01

cacao 100%
Bart’s & Sare's favourite

For making this granola we didn’t just add chocolate. We went back to basics and used the essential ingredients to create chocolate. Thats how this granola gets his own specific cacao flavour. When combined with some yoghurt or milk the deep, dark taste will slowly wake your senses. Or when snacking away this great one...no rush, just cacao crush.

Ingredients
Oatflakes*48%, sunflower seeds*12%, grated coconut*, cacaobutter, cacao%5, agave syrup*, maple syrup*, spices*, seasalt

* organic BE-BIO-01

For our IJLB fans

Especially for you we have introduced the ‘I Just Love Bigger’ bag. If you used to buy several bags with every visit to the shop then this bigger bag could be just the thing. The bigger bag is much cheaper than a bunch of small ones.

And yes, we know, the big bag is perhaps a bit less practical, but it does allow us to limit the amount of packaging material to a minimum. That’s why it was conceived as a refill pack, so you can pour the content into a storage box at home.

Our ultimate dream is to one day be able to switch to a packaging material that can simply be composted in the backyard.
