I always love when places I frequent for shopping have new gluten-free items available. Here in NYC (and some outlying areas) we have a grocery delivery service called Fresh Direct that I use quite often because they offer quality items inclusive of products from smaller companies – not to mention local produce – but I digress. On a recent shopping expedition in Fresh Direct’s Gluten-Free section, I came across these granola bars from a company out of Colorado that was definitely new to me – Two Moms in the Raw.
Those of you that follow me regularly know that I am a huge granola person and I eat it not only for breakfast but pretty much on top of anything I can sprinkle it on. Now I have to confess, I initially did not read the product description so assumed this was a loose granola – it is not. These are wonderfully delicious granola bars that are actually large in size and perfectly portable for snacking on the go. I picked-up their Organic Gojiberry variety and it was definitely love at first bite. The first thing you notice about these bars is their texture and consistency. They are incredibly robust with an organic gluten-free oat groat, buckwheat, and millet base that is peppered with a host of unique flavors and consistencies that truly make these a stand out. In the seed department there’s sunflower, pumpkin, sesame, and flax seeds. The fruit department features gojiberries and apples that are perfectly paired with pecans and almonds that add a deep nutty layer to the bars. Toss in the subtle sweetness from agave, the spiciness of cinnamon, and just the right amount of sea salt and you have what is quite possible the most unique granola bars I have come across to-date.
Be sure to check out Two Moms in the Raw’s Web site where you can learn more about their full product portfolio and even order online. their products can also be ordered on Amazon.com. I know I cannot wait to get my hands of their Truffles.
