Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Chex cereal

Author: Healthnuttxo

I admit…I’ve been in a Special K rut for years. Now I hardly have cereal for breakfast, but every now and then (especially high cardio mornings) I like to have a bowl with some milk for some carbs and protein to keep me going. Well…since I’m trying to refrain from wheat, I skipped the Special K and went for the Gluten Free Apple Cinnamon Chex cereal (I still love you, wheat!)

So I poured a bowl (err…1 cup). I noticed some chex were very sugary/cinnamony and others quite plain as the picture depicts above. Dry…I LOVE the cereal! The plain ones added some crunch, but were, well, relatively plain and bland. The sugary and cinnamony ones were so good :] They tasted like Cinnamon Toast Crunch Squares and were sweet and delicious. I noticed a light apple flavor but nothing too overpowering. When I poured milk onto the cereal…the cereal’s flavor went quite downhill. The flavor dissipated and the cereal was basically crunchy squares (at first at least) that tasted like Corn Flakes.

Overall, a good cereal. I wish it was a bit more “apple-y” in flavor, and I wish the flavor didn’t vanish so much in milk, but I suppose that can’t really be prevented (who knows? I know nothing about the cereal making business haha). The serving size is also a bit small (3/4 cup) and the cereal is low in fiber, with 8 grams of sugar per serving. That being said, this cereal gets 3 1/2 stars overall.

Popcorn, Indiana Apple Crisp Popcorn

Author: Healthnuttxo

Oh yea you know I FLIPPED out when I saw this. Well…I flipped out on the inside because I was in public and all, but on the inside I was screaming YES!!!!! THIS SOUNDS AWESOME!!!!!

Not pumpkin popcorn (ooh, how good does that sound?) but this sounds like just the right thing to bring on the fall spirit. APPLE CRISP! Fall is always about apple picking and pumpkin picking for me (sadly, I have yet to do both this year….) but at least I can enjoy the delicious apple flavors in treats like this! So, I bought it for 3 dollars (at Whole Foods!) which I thought was reasonably priced.

Here’s what some of it looked like

BUT, then I actually weighed it. Here’s what a serving is (insert sad face here)

woooomp. wooooomp.

And yes…that IS a sandwich sized bag.

But whatever. I always eat more than a serving anyway, even though a serving for this is really quite pathetic.

ANYWAY- I looked through the bag. HUGE pieces of popcorn, round and fluffy, along with some pieces being help together by a sticky, sugary syrup. I didn’t mind a bit as it was quite tasty, but there were about 3 HUGE “globs” of this popcorn/syrup mess. I also spotted some oats on the pieces of popcorn, which I guess contributes to the “apple crisp” part.

This popcorn was just really not what I expected. But I can’t say I hated it.

Upon first bite? I was puzzled. What does this taste like? I’ve had this before. I DEFINITELY ate this before!! And then.. This tastes EXACTLY like Quaker Apple Cinnamon Rice Cakes! And let me just say, as a kid, I was obsessed with that very flavor of rice cakes. Although, dont get me wrong, the popcorn was way sweeter. But the flavor was exactly the same.

Overall, I liked this snack. And that’s exactly what I would call it. It wasn’t popcorn to me- no annoying hulls or tiny pieces with popcorn kernels. Just round, fluffy and crunchy pieces with a sugary, apple cinnamon flavored syrup. It was an apple snack to me. 4 stars for this one, only because it’s super high in sugar (TWENTY grams!!), and since the portion size is small, I’d be eating at least double.

*What’s your favorite FALL dessert? I am obsessed with Candy apples. mmmm!


Ahh, nothing like a good granola. Crispy, crunchy, sweet but not too sweet, and still savory. What’s better than granola? =)

Well, what about a granola with probiotics in it??

I was sent the Maple Nut Granola Munch from Attune ,and loved it. I was excited to try other flavors they had to offer, and well, I was sent the Apple Cinnamon flavor to try, too!

Which is actually kind of funny, in my opinion. I actually went to the grocery store in the afternoon, and saw the Maple Nut and Apple Cinnamon flavor in the store. I was going to try the Apple Cinnamon variety, but realized I only had enough money to buy what I went to the store for. So, I figured I would buy it another time.

Little did I know I would be getting a package only a few hours later of the Apple Cinnamon Probiotic Granola Munch! I opened it up almost immediately after I got it. There were crunchy and crispy pieces of granola, with tiny white pieces, that sort of resembled white chocolate chips. The taste was awesome, just as the Maple Nut flavor was. It was a great balance of well, apple and cinnamon flavors! A fresh, almost granny smith apple taste, with sweet cinnamon undertones. Although there weren’t a lot of yogurt chips, they were delicious. They had a buttery sweet vanilla taste, and were nice and smooth.

I don’t know how Attune does it, but this granola is fantastic. The only downside to me is a serving is only 1 ounce, which is a bit small for a granola lover like myself. But I LOVE that this is all natural, has probiotics, and is TASTY! Oh, yea. You know what this means? It’s a 5 star rating!

1 serving (1 oz) is 120 calories, 4 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbohydrates, 3 grams of fiber, 6 grams of sugar and 2 grams of protein.

Betty Lou’s Jumbo Fruit Bars

Author: Healthnuttxo

Betty Lou’s is a company that offers a little something for everyone, while still only using all natural, premium ingredients. The company’s snacks range from being gluten free, wheat free, vegan, dairy free, corn free, and more! No matter what you have to avoid, you will be able to find some snacking comfort with Betty Lou’s products.

Betty Lou’s sent me some of their snacks to try, and today’s review is on the Jumbo Fruit Bars. They come in Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry, Cherry, Apricot, and Strawberry, and are gluten free.

Before I start, don’t be fooled by the word “jumbo“- they are not huge. They do have more filling than a usual fruit bar that I would buy in the store (with a crust-like outside), but not a LOT more. They are also square in shape, rather than rectangular like the other bars.

John, from Betty Lou’s wrote to me about the bars- “Taste like a little piece of pie & are only sweetened with fruit”. Did someone say pie?  and only sweetened with fruit?

Cool- no refined sugars, and still tastes like pie. I dig it 8)

I decided to try the Apple Cinnamon, Blueberry,  and Apricot flavors. All of them had a decently thick crust (about the size if you stacked 2-3 quarters), filled with gooey and sweet fruit filling.

Blueberry-  this one was good. It had actual chunks of baby blueberries in it, which made the fruit filling thick and sweet, but not too sweet. It also had a bit of tartness to it. The crust was graham-cracker like (delish!!), and crumbly.

Apricot- well, I would be lying if I said I didn’t like this one. I expected to “sort of” like this flavor- as apricots aren’t my choice of fruit. However, this one was my favorite of the three! Really sweet and delicious. It was light and fruit, worthy of dessert. Ahh, delicious. (did I say delicious already?)

Apple Cinnamon- Irony again- I expected to like this one the best, and it was my least favorite of the three. It seemed to have less filling than the others, but it was still pretty good. A nice blend of cinnamon and apple flavor for the filling, providing a sweet and chewy center. The crust was a bit more crumbly on this bar than the others, But- nothing a little action in the microwave couldn’t handle. Warm it up and voila!  warm apple pie! 8)

Overall, I give these 4 stars. They really are delicious- and I love that they are gluten free and sweetened with fruit instead of sugar. They really hit the spot warmed up, and went good with an ice cold glass of moo juice. However, they are 180-210 calories each, and are a bit too small for my likings. I would say they are about the size of a make-up compact. I could easily eat 3 of these in a sitting, they are so tast

Each bar is 180-210 calories, 3 grams of fat, 39-44 carbohydrates, 5 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

Nature's Path Instant Hot Oatmeal

Author: healthnuttxo

Ohhh how I lovee oatmeal. It really is the perfect breakfast food- you can play it up any way you want. Add fruit, peanut butter, yogurt, milk, maple syrup, chocolate chips… Or, even plain jane style with a pat of all natural butter and a sprinkle of sugar on top. It really warms and fills you up and gives you plenty of energy.

But- what about those days you just don’t have time to cook good ol’ Quaker over the stove top? That’s usually where Instant oatmeal comes in. Boil some water, pour, stir, enjoy. Or, for those of you who don’t have ANY time to spare (or you lazy-bones out there 😛 ), the microwave helps. However, usually instant oatmeal leaves me unsatisfied. The portion is tiny, the sugar content is high, and it’s just not as good.

So that’s why I was excited to try the Instant Hot Oatmeal from Nature’s Path. I love Nature’s Path and have done several reviews of their products- all of them with positive results. They are a brand I know I can trust to bring me delicious and nutritious foods that will sustain me and my grumbling tummy 🙂

Nature’s Path oatmeal comes in several varieties, but I tried the Maple Nut, Apple Cinnamon and Multigrain Raisin Spice that comes in the variety pack. It also comes in Flax Plus, but I have yet to try that flavor. What I was first happy about was that each packet has more than traditional oatmeal packets have. The Nature’s Path brand provides 50g of oatmeal as compared to 30g that I normally see. You can tell it gives you more too when you pour it in the bowl- a nice change.

Maple Nut– first off, this oen smelled awesome. You could literally smell the maple syrup through the packet, and I looooove Maple Syrup! When I poured the water the sweet maple smell also came through even stronger. I couldn’t wait to dig in 🙂 There was also actual pieces of hazel nuts in the oatmeal. Not too many, but it added an unexpected bit of flavor. It was the right amount of sweetness-not too sugary and was actually pretty satisfying given it was instant oatmeal. 4 stars

Apple Cinnamon- Growing up, Quaker Apple Cinnamon was always my favorite flavor. I just loooved the little bits of apples (and would often eat them all before my mom even poured the hot water in the bowl!). Which is why I was slightly disappointed with this one. There were only a few apple pieces, and it wasn’t really that sweet. It was very smooth texture wise though, not as “blobby” as instant can sometimes be. To jazz this one up a bit, I added some raisins and some stevia and it was perfect. All it needed was a little boost 🙂  3 stars

Multigrain-Raisin Spice- I wasn’t sure I was going to like this one. It wasn’t just oats after all- it was wheat flakes, raisins, corn meal and oat flakes all together. But I gave it a shot, and I am glad I did! It was my favorite of the 3, and the sweetest 🙂 I looved the raisins, they were nice, plump and juicy. The oatmeal actually thickens up quite nicely if you let it sit a little bit, and was more hearty than regular oatmeal.  The “crunchy” wheat flakes added some texture as well. It reminded me of an oatmeal cookie in a bowl. Definietly goign to buy this one again and again. 5 stars

Overall, a pleasant experience with Nature’s Path Instant Hot Oatmeal. I’ll give it 4 stars all together. They provide you with a little more sustenance than traditional instant oatmeal, and are really good paired with some toast & peanut butter or jam, some fruit, or both for a nutritious breakfast (or pre-workout meal like I did!!). I want to try more of their flavors, like the Optimum Brand in Cranberry Ginger. Yum!

Maple Nut & Apple Cinnamon- 1 packet is 210 calories, 2.5-4 grams of fat, 38-40 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein.

Multigrain-Raisin Spice- 1 packet is 180 calories, 1 gram of fat, 39 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, 4 grams of protein.

Maple Nut-Organic rolled oats, organic evaporated cane juice, organic hazelnuts, natural flavor, sea salt.

Apple Cinnamon-Organic rolled oats, organic evaporated cane juice, organic dried apple, organic cinnamon, sea salt, natural flavor.

Multi-grain Raisin Spice-Organic rolled oats, organic wheat flakes, organic evaporated cane juice, organic raisins (coated with organic sunflower oil), organic brown rice flour, organic corn meal, organic cinnamon, sea salt.

Protein Cereal? What on EARTH is that? Read on, bloggies! 🙂

Kay’s Naturals is a brand that makes better alternatives to snacks, packed with nutritious protein and fiber for satiety.  They make a whole assortment of snacks and cereals to please all, and they are mostly Gluten Free.

I was sent some products to try from Kay’s Naturals, including the Protein Cereal in Apple Cinnamon and French Vanilla flavors to try.  The cereals have no trans fats, are gluten free, and have 9 grams of protein per 100 calorie serving (1 oz of cereal). Each of the cereals are ring shapes and have a light and crunchy texture.

Apple Cinnamon- These were very good. They tasted like a combination of apple cinnamon flavors with a hint of a vanilla flavor as well. They had a good amount of sweetness too to accompany the cinnamon flavor, and I liked the little pieces of dehydrated apples on each piece. They were addicting, and curbed my hunger until dinner time,

French Vanilla– Yum! I liked these better than the apple cinnamon variety, but I enjoyed both for the most part. They were a little bit sweeter than the apple cinnamon, and had a light vanilla and cinnamon flavor. I also tasted just a touch of honey to these crispy pieces. They paired nicely with my yogurt 🙂

Overall, these deserve 4 stars. You get a nice portion of cereal to munch on for only 100 calories, and you get 9 grams of  protein per serving!

Apple Cinnamon- Soy protein isolate, yellow corn flour, rice flour, tapioca starch, inulin, pea fiber, natural honey, evaporated cane juice, dehydrated apple pieces, canola oil, cinnamon powder, vanilla extract, natural flavoring, baking powder, double-acting leavening agents, salt.

Penny’s Low Fat Desserts- Muffin Tops

Author: healthnuttxo

penny

Penny’s Low Fat Desserts makes all natural, nutritious desserts, such as muffins, cookies and what I got to try, the muffin tops! The muffin tops come in Orange-Cranberry, Almond Poppy seed, Chocolate Chocolate Chip, Carrot Raisin and Apple Cinnamon flavor. All are about 100-120 calories, generously sized (2 oz) and have 10% calcium needs per serving. There also individually wrapped, so portion control is easy 🙂

So how did these muffin tops taste? Well…

Carrot Raisin Top- my first bite, my brain said “Oh. My. God. THIS IS DELICIOUS!” The raisins were plump and perfect. The muffin was chewy and soft. You could actually see the pieces of carrots! I tasted a nice hint of nutmeg, and overall it had a sweet carrot flavor, like carrot cake. It was excellent. 5 stars 🙂 🙂

Almond Poppy Seed Top- Also DELICIOUS! It had a nice, light, lemony flavor and i really liked the teensy poppy seeds that added a bit of a crunch. It was soft, and moist and tasted like angel food cake to me. Went perfect with my Brown Cow Strawberry greek yogurt. I actually let a little piece sit in the yogurt for a few minutes and it got really soft and yummy! 5 stars for this one too!!

Apple Cinnamon Top– this one was also amazing! It tasted like Quaker Apple Cinnamon oatmeal to me! It was very moist, and mildly sweet. The cinnamon added a nice touch. I loved the apple chunks/pieces in it. 4 stars!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Top- This one was the only one i wasn’t crazy about. And it’s chocolate too! Don’t get me wrong, it was good, but not as chocolatey as i expected. I think i would have liked it better if it wasn’t double chocolate, but perhaps just a chocolate chip muffin. But, it was soft, and mildly sweet. I did like the gooey chocolate chips,  especially after warming in the microwave 🙂 It had a mellow chocolate flavor, and it paired well with a glass of milk. I think it might taste good with a smearing of peanut butter on it. 3 stars

Overall, these are awesome ! I’m giving them 4 stars as a whole. The almond poppy seed and carrot raisin are 2 that I will be ordering a LOT!  I paired these with a yogurt for breakfast and was satisfied because it was not only delicious, but filling. I would love Penny to make a banana flavored top or something with peanut butter. Yum! I will hopefully be reviewing more of Penny’s treats in the near future. What are your favorites by Penny’s?

Pure Bar

Author: healthnuttxo

Pure Bars are a bit different than your average granola or snack bar. They are “Raw” organic food bars. Nothing is cooked or processed to make the bars, and they have very minimal ingredients. They are all organic, low in sodium, vegan, gluten free, and provide 1 1/2 servings of fruit per bar. They also don’t contain any refined sugar, preservatives, trans fats, dairy, soy or GMO’s. These bars are simply PURE. I see them being sold mostly at Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s.
CranberryOrange- This was was delicious! It has an orange-y “after taste” which was very yummy with the tartness of the cranberry. It almsot leaves an orange peel flavor on your tongue. This one is reallly good, especially if you like cranberries. It was also the perfect amount of sweetness.

Cherry Cashew-yuuuuuum. I love cashews. And now i love cherries and cashews. This one had a nice tang to it provided by the cherries, which was mellowed out by the chunks of cashew. It almost had an apple-cherry flavor to it. So good.

(added)
Chocolate Brownie- while this one didn’t totally remind me of a brownie, as it wasn’t super sweet, it still was pretty good. A fruity/chocolatey taste, soft and chewy in consistency, and it had nuts in it, making it feel like a walnut brownie! yum!

Apple Cinnamon- This one tasted to me like apple pie. The apple chunks in the bar looked and tasted like the dried apples you get in Apple Cinnamon flavored instant oatmeal, like by Kashi or Quaker.( Which is okay with me, when i was little i would pick out those apple pieces and eat them raw!) The chunks of walnut also add a nice touch to the bar, and there was just a hint of cinnamon flavor.

Overall, these were excellent. They had a nice, soft texture, because it’s made mostly from fruit. I also really enjoyed the chewiness that the bar provided. The only bad part in my eyes is that each of these bars runs you about 200 calories, and they aren’t really that big. They are a decent size, but they are also very nutrient dense, so I don’t think they really need to be any bigger. They are very satisfying by themselves, as they pack a high nutritious punch with healthy fat, carbohydrates, fiber and protein. I definietly reccommend these bars! They are “way too good to  be this good” !

Cranberry Orange- 1 bar is 200 calories, 9 grams of fat, 23 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, and 7 grams of protein. It also contains400 mg of Omega 3s and antioxidants helpful for fighting diseases!

Organic Dates, Organic Cranberries (with Organic Apple Juice Concentrate and Organic Sunflower Oil), Organic Walnuts, Organic Cashews, Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Almonds, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Orange Peel, Organic Orange Oil.

Cherry Cashew– 1 bar is 200 calories, 9 grams of fat, 26 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, and 6 grams of protein (and antioxidants and omega 3’s!)

Organic Dates, Organic Cherries, Organic Walnuts, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Almonds, Organic Cashews, Organic Brown Rice Protein

Apple Cinnamon – 1 bar is 190 calories, 8 grams of fat, 26 carbohydrates, 4 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of protein.

Organic Dates, Organic Apples, Organic Walnuts, Organic Agave Nectar, Organic Cashews, Organic Almonds, Organic Brown Rice Protein, Organic Cinnamon.

Clif Kid Organic Z Bar Apple Cinnamon

Author: healthnuttxo

zbar

I’m very fond of the Original Clif Bars. Yes-they are a little high in calories (250 for a bar) but they are nutritious, filling, and fuel me up perfectly pre-workout.

So, I decided to try the “kid version” of the Clif Bar. The company claims that is a wholesome bar with wholesome ingredients. No “junk”, or hydrogenated oils, preservatives, and artificial flavors or colors. They come in several flavors, chocolate chip, chocolate brownie, honey graham, spooky s’mores (my favorite-but only availble during Halloween. 🙁 !!, peanut butter, blueberry, and apple cinnamon.

I opened up the bar, and there are swirls of vanilla “icing” on the top. I took a bite-yummy! You can taste bits of apple and cinnamon for sure. It’s soft and chewy-kind of like a slightly undercooked cookie. I liked it-a lot! Certainly not just for kids!

It’s super healthy too. Pretty much all organic, whole grain, and with added vitamins and minerals. 1 bar is 120 calories,  2 grams of fat, 23 carbs, 3 grams of fiber, and 3 grams of protein. I think this with some fruit is a very substantial snack or a very light lunch on the go.

Organic Dried Apples, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Tapioca Syrup, Organic Fig Paste, Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Oat Flour, Organic Apple Juice Concentrate, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice Syrup, Organic Soy Butter, Organic White Coating (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Cocoa Butter, Organic Rice Extract, Organic Vanilla Extract), Organic Oat Fiber, Organic Milled Flaxseed, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Apple Flavor, Baking Soda, Salt, Natural Flavors.
