Battenkill Brittle

by Anne Paddock

Battenkill Brittle is a high energy snack with five major attributes: great taste, wholesome ingredients, high in protein, low in sugar, and low in sodium. Made with three types of organic seeds (sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin), organic brown rice syrup, Vermont maple syrup, and pecan meal, Battenkill Brittle is the perfect snack food – wholesome, crunchy, and full of flavor. Slightly sweet with the subtle taste of maple, the brittle stands out for making seeds and pecans the star of the show.

Battenkill BrittleMade in Arlington, Vermont – a small town in southern Vermont that borders the Battenkill River, Battenkill Brittle comes in two forms: bar and crumble. While the bars are ideal to carry with you, the crumble is almost like a granola in appearance which makes it easy to eat as a cereal or sprinkle over oatmeal and yogurt, or add to cookie dough, pancakes, or waffles. But beware, Battenkill Brittle is extremely addicting and shares exactly one attribute with potato chips:  one is never enough. Even my husband who shuns anything that looks healthy, devours these bars.Battenkill Brittle
