Recently when we were at Costco and I was perusing the granola bar and snack section I came across these certified paleo, grain free, gulten free granola bars and decided to pick up a box to try!
The bars have almonds, pecans, maple syrup, honey, coconut, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, cinnamon, sea salt and vanilla extract. I initially thought that the bars would have a soft texture but they're definitely a crunchy bar. They're not very sweet, have a definite cinnamon flavor and taste basically like compressed hard granola. Despite them being a hard, crunchy bar they actually don't leave crumbs everywhere!
These were not cheap! 16 bars for $18.99 Canadian. You're definitely paying for the "grain free" and "paleo" in the marketing. You're also also paying for the cost of the nuts that are the main ingredients in the bar! Nuts are not cheap.
Open and eat! That's all there is to it. The best before date is almost 6 months from the date I purchased the bars.
One bar is 200 calories, 16 grams of fat, 55mg of sodium, 11 grams of carbohydrates, three grams of fibre, six grams of sugar and four grams of protein. The fat is coming from the nuts (healthy fat). The ingredients list is short and sweet and full of "clean" ingredients which is definitely appreciated!
These are delicious but I probably would only buy them if I were watching my carbohydrates, following paleo or was trying to eat more healthy fats! They're a little expensive and I have no problems eating grains but I actually don't eat a ton of granola bars!
What do you think about these? Would you try them? Would you pay the $18.99?
