I love snacks! Who doesn’t? There are tons of different snack foods all over the store; some taste great (but may not be the best for us), and others may be healthier (but may not taste so good). I’m excited to tell you that this week’s pick bridges the snacking gap – it tastes great and is good for us! With a fabulous NuVal® score of 91, Bare Fruit® Organic Crunchy Apple Chips are just what they say they are: bare fruit. The apples are baked (not fried) in a way that the natural sugars carmelize on the outside, eliciting a sweet and tart flavor combination without added sugars, fats or sodium. This crunchy snack is low in calories, full of fiber and super convenient to grab on the go. They are also gluten-free, cholesterol free and preservative free, making them a great gluten-free and heart healthy treat. With three different flavors, Fuiji Red, Granny Smith and Cinnamon, there is a pefect apple chip for everyone! I like to eat these crispy chips as a mid-afternoon snack, or add to my yogurt, oatmeal, muffins, salads and even hot tea. For more inspiration, be sure to check out the Bare Fruit® website for delicious recipes and quick fix ideas. Which apple chip flavor would you like to try? How are you going to enjoy them? I would love to hear! Nutritional Information for 1 oz.
