Peachy Eats Earnest Eats! The Peachy's Pantry Panel Recommends Earnest Eats!

If you are looking for a granola-type breakfast on the go, you need to try the Earnest Eats Baked Whole Food Bars in Cran-Lemon Zest or Apple Ginger. Normally, I eat a banana and a muffin top for breakfast and am hungry about 90 minutes later. After eating one of these bars, I wasn't hungry until lunch. The Apple Ginger bar tasted like I had just eaten a fresh cut apple with a sprinkle of ginger. The Cran-Lemon Zest was my favorite. I love cranberries and lemon, but never thought they would be tasty when paired together. What I loved about these bars was how soft these were. I cannot wait to try more products from Earnest Eats! 

One bite of the Cran-Lemon Zest Baked Whole Food Bar by Earnest Eats and I was in love. I couldn't stop saying, "Mmm! This is SO good!" The following day I tried the Apple-Ginger Bar and fell head over heels for that one too! The best part about this? There is no need to feel guilty when eating these! The philosophy of Earnest Eats is "delicious, nutritious, convenient, sustainable, fresh." Their snacks are minimally processed, preservative-free, have no artificial ingredients and are baked in small batches. They are also wheat-free and are vegan. Additionally, they taste incredible! I have been keeping one with me at all times so that when hunger strikes, I have a healthy (delicious) snack ready to go! I can't wait to try more of their on my list is the Dark Chocolate Mint Baked Whole Food Bar! 

Earnest Eats Apple Ginger Baked Whole Food Bar is really delicious. It is made of whole food ingredients that provide exceptional nutrition and extraordinary flavor. The taste is amazing, as is the smell because they're naturally that way. They don’t macerate, extrude or mush anything to a pulp. Baked in small batches in real kitchens, their foods have the simplicity of whole grains, hearty nuts and seeds, and the natural sweetness of fruit. Most bars use conventional cooking oils to add moisture. They use almond butter. Almond butter provides a really nourishing heart healthy baseand is a great binder. It keeps the bars nice and moist and naturally brings out the sweetness of the dried fruit. The Cran Lemon Zest Bar is equally delicious. They don't use spray on vitamins, or soy protein powders They let the ingredients be themselves. Earnest Eats are made in small batches. They are baked in real baking trays. They're minimally processed. The ingredients are sourced from around the world to create deliciously unexpected combinations that taste amazing and are good for you too. The ingredients are responsibly farmed. The bars also are a good source of omega 3s – a benefit found in very few other bars on the market.

I eat a lot of bars. I must have tried every bar on the market, so when I had the opportunity to try this bar I was excited! Another rule I have when choosing a bar, is that it has to be as natural as possible. The Earnest Eats bar certainly fit the bill and they are DELICIOUS! Just by taste alone, you can tell they are made with high quality ingredients. My favorite flavor is the cran zest, but I enjoyed the apple ginger as well. The fact these bars and wheat free and vegan is simply an added bonus. I highly recommend these bars. They really do make a very delicious snack!

Earnest Eats is one of the best snacks I have ever had. I was lucky enough to be able to try the Cran Lemon Zest and Apple Ginger. Both tasted AMAZING! My energy level lasted all day unlike other bars like these that are just packed with sugar. These bars are made of the best and most pure products out there. I love that they are made as healthy as possible with the best taste! It really is a healthy alternative as the perfect snack. It helps keep you going all day long.
