Chocolate Chip Baked Biscotti Bites

Pizza Thins Raw Crackers

Almond Butter Chunk Baked Granola

Reviews:

Super crunchy biscotti pieces with Chocolate Chips? Yup! They exist and I’m loving them! Healing Home Foods’ Chocolate Chip Biscotti Bites are not too sweet and have a wonderful oven-baked flavor, which paired perfectly with my almond milk latte. They’re made with almond flour and other plant-based ingredients, so vegans and people that avoid gluten will be able to enjoy them! A handful of these and my regular cup of coffee kept me full and running ’till lunch time!

Next up, are the amazingly delicious Pizza Thins! These crispy little crackers are bursting with Italian flavors thanks to Sun-dried Tomatoes, Garlic, Basil, and Oregano! These little guys pop with tangy tomato and they’re completely addicting! I may or may not have polished off the entire bag in one sitting (I absolutely did). You will think you’re diving into a freshly baked slice of your favorite vegan pizza! I’m in love!

Last but not least, is the Almond Butter Chunk Granola! What’s not to like about big, hearty pieces of baked oats and almond butter? This raw, gluten-free granola is subtly sweet and makes a  satisfying snack or meal. It’s made with Gluten-Free rolled oats, *sprouted almonds, *maple syrup, *almond butter, gluten-free quick oats, *maple sugar, *ground flaxseed, *coconut oil, vanilla flavor, and Himalayan crystal salt. It’s so tasty, you’d never think it was raw, vegan, OR good for you!

The Bottom Line

Healing Home Foods makes unique snacks that are vegan, organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, and truly delicious! If I had to choose one item from the list above to recommend, I would say definitely try out the Pizza Thins… or maybe the Biscotti Bites… or the granola. Haha, I don’t know, just try them all and let me know which one you like the best!

Thank you, Home Healing Foods, for sending me these awesome snacks to try!

These decadent-yet-healthful treats are handcrafted in small batches with simple ingredients and are rich in both flavor and nutrient density.

Reviews:

Chocolate Lovers REJOICE! There’s now a way to satisfy your chocolate cravings with snacks that are delicious AND healthy!

Rawmio Organic Gourmet Chocolates are raw, vegan, fair trade, and certified organic! They offer a wide range of products that will make any Chocoholic happy… especially this girl! I was thrilled to try out some of their products and can’t wait to share them with you! Let’s go!

First up, is the Mint Rawmio Essentials Bar with 70% Cacao. This bar starts with single-origin cacao sourced directly from Peru, coconut sugar, and raw cacao butter, then mix with the perfect amount of peppermint essence. Some mint chocolates leave you wishing for more minty flavor and others make you feel like you just brushed your teeth. The chocolate to mint ratio of this bar is spot-on! You get a nice, refreshing burst of mint that pairs perfectly with the deep, rich dark chocolate flavor. This bar reminds me of a healthy, high quality version of Andes Mints that I used to eat back in the day!

The  Rawmio Organic Stone Ground Gourmet Puffed Cereal Crunch Bark also takes me back to my childhood! This decadent chocolate bark features Peruvian chocolate with 70% cacao and puffed quinoa. I absolute LOVE the crunch and texture of the puffed quinoa… and when paired with the smooth, rich dark chocolate, it really can’t be beat! This little bar is the healthy, grown-up cousin of the Crunch bar!

Rawmio Organic Stone Ground Gourmet Active Superfood Bark contains 4 ancient medicinal mushrooms, sprouted red clover, Peruvian maca root, and stone ground raw chocolate, topped with chia seeds and mulberry pieces. Yes, it most certainly sounds healthy… but how did it taste? I REALLY don’t like mushrooms, so I was skeptical.  I am happy to report that this bar was absolutely delicious! You’d never guess it contained mushrooms or was even a healthy snack! The chia seeds added a little crunch and the mulberry added a chewy element to the smooth texture of the dark chocolate. I really like this!

Last, but not at all the least, I tried the Rawmio Chocolate Covered Sweet Cherries. Sweet, chewy cherries covered in a layer of thick dark chocolate… seriously, what’s not to love? Honestly, I could (and would) eat these all day!

The Bottom Line

Rawmio Organic Gourmet Chocolate offers mouthwatering, high quality chocolates that junk food junkies and health enthusiasts alike will love! No detail is forgotten in these little snacks… the packaging is fantastic and the designs on the chocolate bars are so fun and adorable! I love that the chocolate is fair trade, certified organic, and of course, VEGAN! This says a lot of about the company… they care about your health, animals, people, and the planet. Now that’s a company that I want to support and stand behind! !

Thank you, Rawmio, for sending me these wonderful chocolates to review!

The All Around Vegan Box – A must have for all vegan foodies and activists!

Before we get started, yes that is Bubbles in the feature image!!!

Company: All Around Vegan

Product: March 2018 All Around Vegan Box  (order now to get this month’s box!)

Review:

I love this subscription box.

End of review.

Just joking… but seriously, I love this subscription box for so many reasons! If you missed my previous review of the All Around Vegan Box, you don’t know what you’re missing!

Unlike other vegan subscription boxes that make you choose between bath and body, beauty or food products, the All Around Vegan Box comes with Lifestyle products, Nutritional products, Bath & Body products, and Activism Products. It is perfect for vegans that love trying new foods and new ways to learn and grow as activists. This box is also perfect for those that are transitioning into a vegan lifestyle… I mean, what’s better than getting a box full of vegan stuff at your door every month?!

So, what’s in the March box?

First, we have some delicious Carrot Oat Mini Cookies from Partake Foods.

They’re vegan, gluten-free, nut free, and soy free… I know what you’re thinking… “Yeah, they’re probably “flavor-free”, too.” Well, buddy, you’re wrong! These crunchy little cookies are packed with flavor! Cinnamon, carrot and oat make this cookie taste like a crispy little carrot cake, and I’m here for it!

Next, we have every vegan’s soulmate. NOOCH! That’s right, this month’s box includes Frontier Co-op’s Nutritional Yeast Flakes!

If you’ve never had nutritional yeast, drop what you’re doing, leave work early, drop the kids off at the babysitter, do what you gotta do and go get some. Better yet, just order this box! Anyway, I put nooch on veggies, pizza, popcorn, potatoes, salad, pasta, rice, you name it! It has a wonderful cheezy flavor and makes everything taste oh-so-good! I love that this little jar is perfect for taking with me. Hey, you never know when you’re gonna need a little nooch. You think I’m joking. I’m not. This stuff is awesome.

Next up, are the gimMe Organic Toasted Sesame and Sea Salt Premium Roasted Seaweed snacks. I’ve had these before and they’re definitely a unique and healthy snack! The sea weed is thin and crispy and packs a punch of salty flavor. They’re gluten-free, non-GMO, and certified organic. If you’re looking to spice up your snack game, you’ll like these!

Up next, is the Mint Valley Seed Co. Mustard Microgreens Growing Kit! How freakin’ cute! I was planning on growing some herbs in my kitchen for quite some time, but you know… life. This kit comes with all you need to grow little mustard greens in your home, and they’re ready to eat within a week!

Next up, is Happy Pits Sweet Orange All Natural Deodorant!

If you’re familiar with natural deodorants, you know that they either don’t work or they work pretty well but can really irritate your skin. This deo is aluminum and chemical free, and contains coconut oil, shea butter, arrowroot powder, baking soda, and organic tea tree oil. Arrowroot and baking soda keep you dry, while coconut oil and shea butter moisturize and give you “happy pits.” Now, if they could only make “Happy Hair” because my curls are looking pretty rough lately!

Last, this box included:The Modern Savage written by James McWilliams. The author “pushes back against the questionable moral standards of a largely omnivorous” while revealing “the scope of the cruelty that takes place even on the smallest and – supposedly – most humane animal farms.” “McWilliams advocates for the only truly moral, sustainable choice – a diet without meat, dairy, or other animal products.” Well, this sounds like the perfect book for activists and those that are interested in learning! *I’ll add an update once I’ve read it all!

The Bottom Line

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, the All Around Vegan Box is my favorite subscription box! You get delicious foods, lifestyle products, bath and body products, and activism products… What more could you want?!

I don’t know of any other box that will help your pits smell great, give you reading material to add some more wrinkles on that big old vegan brain of yours, let you grow your own mustard greens, and gives you delicious snacks and nooch!

As you can probably tell, I highly recommend this box! Head on over to their website to check out their different subscription options!

My Favorite Indulgence – World Class Granola That Tastes Like Dessert!

Company: My Favorite Indulgence

Products:

Chocolate Mocha Granola

Pumpkin Spiced Granola

Maple Cinnamon Granola

Classic Almond Granola

Reviews:

Is your morning routine missing a little something? Toast and coffee not cutting it anymore? Try My Favorite Indulgence World Class Granola! (How’d you like my infomercial impression?) These granolas are vegan and made with natural, non-GMO ingredients. There’s nothing on the labels that you won’t be able to pronounce and the flavors are incredible! Alright, let’s jump right in!

First up, is the Chocolate Mocha Granola. I love chocolate. I love coffee. I love granola. So obviously I had high hopes for this one! I was not let down! The sweet, cocoa flavor along with the crunchiness of the oats and almonds really can’t be beat! There is even a hint of cinnamon which really amps up the flavor. I paired this with almond milk and it was like eating a dessert for breakfast. I’m in love!

Next, is the Pumpkin Spiced Granola. As far as I’m concerned, Pumpkin Spiced flavored foods should be eaten year round! Some “pumpkin” flavored foods taste artificial and not very appetizing. This granola, on the other hand, is done right! It contains actually pumpkin which is the primary flavor of this granola, along with pure maple syrup, dried cranberries, almonds, and pumpkin seeds. It is subtly sweet, crunchy and tastes like pumpkin pie. It’s pumpkin perfection!

The Maple Cinnamon Granola (listed on their website as “Nut-Free Granola) is phenomenal! The sweetness from the pure maple syrup with the pleasant bitterness of the cinnamon and the crunch of the oats; this granola does not disappoint! This flavor is nut-free and perfect for someone that isn’t into “dessert” flavors like the ones above or just prefers simpler flavor profiles.

Last but not least is the Classic Almond Granola (listed on their website as “Granola With Nuts”). If you’re a traditional granola lover, this is for you! This variety contains almonds, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sunflower seeds. I’ve never had granola with all three, so I was interested to try this! Just because it is “Classic” doesn’t mean it’s boring! The blend of maple syrup, brown sugar, and vanilla along with the oats, nuts, and seeds is truly delicious!

The Bottom Line

These granolas from My Favorite Indulgence are fantastic. They’re vegan, healthy and oh-so-delicious! All of the flavors are non-GMO and make a satisfying meal or snack.  I love each and every flavor and actually couldn’t pick a favorite! I love that they come in a large 10 oz. size for home and also come in 2 oz. snack sizes to take on the go! Head on over to the My Favorite Indulgence website to check out their world-class granola!

Thank you, My Favorite Indulgence, for sending me these products to review!

Eat Your Coffee Bars… Delicious Vegan Bars with a Caffeine Kick!

Company: Newgroundsfood.com

Products:

Mocha Latte Coffee Bar

Coconut Mocha Coffee Bar

Caramel Macchiato Coffee Bar

Review:

Calling all coffee addicts… there’s a new kid in town! Eat Your Coffee Bars contain a cup of coffee in each bar! They’re vegan, organic, gluten-free, non-GMO, and made with fair trade coffee!

When it comes to coffee, I’m slightly (and by “slightly” I mean VERY) picky. It needs to be smooth, not too bitter, and of course, it better wake me up!

I recently started a new job that requires me to wake up incredibly early and commute about 40 minutes to get there. So, even making coffee before I leave can throw off my schedule and make me late. That’s why I am so happy to have found these Eat Your Coffee Bars! I don’t need to make my coffee, I just eat a bar!

The Mocha Latte Coffee Bar is made with dates, gluten-free oats, almond butter, and dark chocolate. It is chewy, sweet, and full of chocolate-y coffee flavor. The dark chocolate chips really amp up the mocha flavor and cashews give it some crunch, making this a seriously delicious pick me up!

The Caramel Macchiato Coffee Bar actually tastes like a fancy drink that would cost you around $7.00 at Starbucks! The sweetness of the dates and the subtle bitterness of the coffee are in perfect balance. Yum!

The Coconut Mocha CoffeeBar is my favorite! It is chewy like the others and has a sweet coconut flavor that is absolutely mouthwatering. It also has brown rice and quinoa  to make it crunchy and satisfying. The combo of coconut, dark chocolate, and coffee really can’t be beat!

The Bottom Line

Eat Your Coffee Bars are delicious, good for you and will actually wake your a$$ up! Whether you’re a coffee addict (like myself) or just want a healthy, easy way to get energized, these bars are for you! To make things even better, this company is part of The Chain Collaborative, a non-profit that supports coffee producers in Nicaragua and Guatemala. Awesome!

Thank you, Eat Your Coffee, for sending me these fantastic bars to review! I highly recommend them!
