If you ask anyone who knows me, I am one of those girls who could eat sweets ALL the time. I mean, what’s better for breakfast than some Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream? Okay, maybe I could go for the donuts instead, but the catch is being healthy with your sweets. As a girl with a sweet tooth, who is also trying to be healthy, finding a snack that satisfies both needs can be frustrating. But, I think Kashi may have found a match for me.
Kashi is such a great brand, as I’ve tried several of their cereals and other products, but I am extremely impressed with their new Kashi Soft Baked Squares. These little delights come in two different flavors, Almond and Chocolate. Now, I’m not a huge fan of Almonds, but this snack is so delicious it may have turned me INTO and almond fan. I think it may have something to do with the sweet potatoes or agave syrup they use to give it its flavor, but it is incredible at only 160 calories! Kashi Chocolate Soft-Baked Squares are definitely my favorite, probably because they taste like a homemade brownie. Honestly, I find it hard to choose between the two of them when I reach for my sweet snack in the middle of the day. But what’s the catch? Artificial ingredients? Tons of fat grams? Nope. There is absolutely no catch.
Both of these snacks are made with whole grains and contain 4 grams of fiber, which really helps when you’re looking for a snack that both fills you up and tastes good. Their portion size and individual wrapping makes them great for people on the go, or to pack for a sweet, nutritious snack for your kid! To top it all off, Kashi Soft-Baked Squares are made with no synthetic colors and artificial flavors, preservatives and sweeteners and no high fructose corn syrup.
Kashi’s mission is to “change healthy eating from effort to enjoyment,” and I do believe they have accomplished that with the Kashi Soft-Baked Squares. I highly recommend picking one of these up at your local grocer the next chance you get to satisfy that craving in a nutritious way. J
