It’s been a long time since I’ve done a product review, but my policy is, I will only review products that my family and I use and love on a regular basis. Lately, we have been taking advantage of local produce and haven’t been shopping around for new products. However, I am always on the look out for something I can grab and go, that both the kids and I enjoy.
We have had our fill of gluten-free granola bars. None of the products on the market really stand out and they all basically do the same thing – oats, nuts, sugar. Overall, there isn’t much there nutritionally. Lately though, even the allure of chocolate chips doesn’t get the kids jazzed up to have a prepackaged granola bar. We needed to find something else to grab out of the cupboard when we are rushing out the door. It had to be tasty, but also have nutritional hit that will keep my kids full and energized and I can feel good unwrapping. I also wanted something I can enjoy too, with “adult flavors”, such as dark chocolate, coconut, flax, etc. Then I found Raw Revolution® bars.
Raw Revolution® bars are made by a company called Raw Indulgence, Ltd© based out of Hawthorne, NY. They currently produce 14 flavors of bars. All of the bars are certified organic, therefore, non-GMO. The bars are also vegan, kosher, and gluten-free (except for the Apple Cinnamon flavor which contains wheat grass and barley grass powder). Each bar also contains sprouted superfoods such as sprouted flax, and they are minimally processed. The ingredients list is small and typically contains nuts, seeds, dried fruit, chocolate, coconut, and agave nectar as a sweetener.
They distribute to many of the major supermarkets in my area (Stop&Shop, Shaws, Whole Foods) and their website will help identify stores in your area, though not all the flavors will be available. You can also order all the flavors straight from the website or off Amazon.
My favorite flavor by far is Almond Butter Cup. It has big chunks of chocolate and almonds, among a background of dates, sunflower seeds and sprouted flax. I recently threw one in my bag for an outing and brought along some gluten-free granola bars for the kids. I never got a bite of my Almond Butter Cup Raw Revolution® bar because both kids were begging for it as they handed me back their granola bars. I can completely confirm that these bars are kid-friendly.
So, if you are looking to change up your go-to snacks, check out Raw Revolution® bars. They are definitely a delicious and healthier alternative to your average gluten-free bar.
