Granola Bites by the Organic Pantry Co.

by Anne Paddock

For plant-based eaters who prefer a farmer’s market over an outdoor vegan fest, please know I get it. It’s not that vegan foods are bad, although there are certainly a lot of unhealthy ones out there, its that far too often these products contain oil, refined sugar, syrups, or other undesirable sweeteners, too much sodium, or ingredients that I can’t pronounce.

If most of your diet is whole food plant-based then very few commercially prepared foods are on your pantry’s shelf or in the refrigerator or freezer because finding really stellar products – foods made with top notch ingredients without all the additives, and that taste great – is tough (there is just no getting around being vigilant and reading labels).

Every once in a while, a truly great product is introduced (and it feels like a reward when you find it), which is the case with Granola Bites by the Organic Pantry Co. Granola Bites are tasty pieces of granola (almost like thin crunchy cookies) with mulberries (Cashew, Date & Mulberry) or coconut and raisins (Coconut, Cacao, and Raisin) :

The Cashew, Date & Mulberry Granola Bites are made with 10 ingredients:

  • organic golden flax
  • organic quinoa flakes
  • organic date paste
  • organic dates
  • organic mulberries
  • organic cashews
  • organic pumpkin seeds
  • organic pecans, organic vanilla extract
  • organic ground cinnamon
  • organic ground nutmeg

The Coconut, Cacao, and Raisin Granola Bites are made with 12 ingredients:

  • Organic golden flax seeds
  • organic quinoa flakes
  • organic date paste
  • organic raisins
  • organic baked coconut
  • organi coconut
  • organic pumpkin seeds
  • organic sunflower seeds
  • organic cacao nibs
  • organic vanilla extract
  • organic ground cinnamon
  • organic ground nutmeg

No sugar, no oil, no dairy, no eggs, and no additives. All of the ingredients of these Granola Bites are recognizable (and probably in your pantry or cabinets).

Granola Bites can be purchased directly from The Organic Pantry Co’s website: www.theorganicpantryco.com.   A 4-ounce packet is $6; an 8-ounce packet is $12; 6 8-ounce packets are $60.
