I love finding new gluten-free products, especially ones that are food-allergy friendly. These Foodie Fuel Snacks a quick snack that are safe to send to school or devour all by yourself. Thank you to Foodie Fuel for sponsoring this post!
I love to snack. Working from home, I always find myself looking for something to nibble. Too many times, my hand grabs something loaded with processed carbohydrates. Not the best choice, I know. That’s why I am always on the lookout for new goodies that are good for me. I miraculously discovered Foodie Fuel Snacks while walking through Horrock’s. (Never heard of Horrock’s? Shut yo’ mouth! Next time you stop in Lansing, you must visit!) The colorful packaging truly caught my eye.
Know what else caught my eye?
* Certified gluten-free through GFCO (and made in a dedicated GF facility!)
* Nut-Free ###
* Vegan (i.e., dairy-free and egg-free)
* No artificial or alternative sugars
I mentioned what ingredients you won’t find. However, let me fill you in on the goodness you WILL find! Foodie Fuel snacks are loaded with heart-healthy, complex-carbohydrate seeds. Love sunflower and pumpkin seeds? They make up the base of these snacks. Are you a fan of chia seeds and flax seeds? These snacks have those too! These bite-sized snacks were created to sustain your energy all day while being full of real nutrients. A touch of coconut sugar or cocoa powder doesn’t hurt either!
For all those reasons and more, these are perfect to send as an after-school snack for the clubs my teacher-husband leads. As I shared previously, his district established a nut-free environment in all classrooms. When you get a mix of kids together, sometimes finding a snack that everyone can eat provides a challenge. However, Foodie Fuel Snacks cover all the food-allergy bases. While they taste great on their own, they also pair well with dips. I almost devoured this whole bowl of chocolate dessert hummus, using the Cinnamon Ginger snacks.
Foodie Fuel Apple Tarts
When I first saw these at Horrock’s, I only purchased the Butter Toffee and the Swiss Chocolate. Because, well, CHOCOLATE! I totally passed on the Cinnamon Ginger, thinking they might have too much of a bite. Oh how thankful I am that my friends at Foodie Fuel sent them to me. They are so delicious! Biting into them, I immediately thought they would pair perfectly with apples. Therefore, I made a quick crumb crust with them, formed it into an upside down mason jar lid, and filled it with homemade pie filling. Truly, there are no words for how delicious this tastes. My husband ate every single (remaining) bite when he returned home from work. Shout outs to Dessert For Two and MyRecipes for the inspiration behind this sweet treat!
