Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Lentils
The Perfect Snaque makes a product called Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Lentils that is deliciously crunchy, high in protein, and low in fat and sugar, despite the use of the word “sugar” in the product name. Whenever I see the word “sugar,” my first response is to move on but as the company truly states, these snacks are “insanely delicious and ridiculously nutritious.”
The primary ingredient – lentils – are a superfood and a great plant-based source of protein, fiber, and iron. Naturally, low in fat with a nutty flavor, the lentils are sprouted, baked, and finished with a very light cinnamon sugar topping.
Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Lentils are sold in two sizes: 5 ounce and 1 ounce packets. Easy to pack in a lunch box, backpack or purse, this tasty snack has 100 calories per 1 ounce packet. With 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of dietary fiber, and only 3 grams of sugar per serving, the Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Lentils are gluten-free, vegan, and very low in sodium (6 mg). But, equally as important is the taste which is deliciously satisfying.
80% less fat than chips and 90% less fat than nuts, the Cinnamon Sugar Sprouted Lentils are perfect to eat right out of the bag or sprinkle on top of yogurt, homemade cookies, or a plain cereal. The packets can be purchased at natural, gourmet, and specialty food retailers including Whole Foods in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Washington, DC, Maryland, and New Jersey , as well as Kings and Shop Rite. On-line purchases can be made directly through the company or Lucky Vitamin. On-line prices for the 1 ounce packets are $1.34-$1.89 and $5.00-$5.89 for the 5 ounce packets.
