The Earnest Truth
Hello everybody! Sorry I was non-existent over the weekend!
I am so excited because today is my first product review!
First off, I have made homemade granola quite a few times. However, it always makes a huge batch and I end up eating the whole batch in 2 days or less. Eeks. That’s a lot of granola. Seriously, I need portion control when it comes to tasty things like granola.
Luckily, Earnest Eats specializes in granola and granola bars!
Their products are made with pure, simple, un-messed-with whole foods that taste delicious! I love that!
They were super generous and sent me a sample of EACH of their products!
(This is my first product review and I will always review with 100% honesty!)
Their Granola Planks are like the best invention ever. You heat it in the microwave for 8 seconds and then crumble the warm, crunchy granola onto whatever you please!
I loved all the flavors. Each flavor was bursting with oats, almonds, dried fruit, peanuts and puffed crisps. I could tell that these had not been sitting around for months and months, they were so fresh! Also, I love how there’s no weird ingredients. All the ingredients were things I could find in my home!
The one teeny-tiny problem I had with these planks (if you can call it a problem) is that one plank has 2 servings, so you have to exercise some self control to not eat the whole thing, since they are not low in calories or sugar!
Overall, the granola planks are fantastic! They are a perfect addition to a filling breakfast or a healthy snack.
Next up: Earnest Eats bars!
Yes, they have bars, too!
The bars are made with my favorite ingredient: almond butter! How cool is that?! The almond butter in each of the bars holds it together and adds great texture and flavor!
They have bars in 4 flavors.
- Choco Peanut Butter
This was my second favorite bar. It was sweet and tasted just like a peanut butter cookie! It was so heavenly after being warmed up in the microwave for a few seconds, too! Like it was fresh from the oven! Perfect sweet snack! And the choco pb flavors are spot on!
- Apple Ginger
Ahh, this one tasted like a slice of apple pie! Heavenly. Loved it, the flavors come together so nicely in this bar. I’m sure it LOADS healthier than any other apple pie!
- Cran Lemon Zest
This was my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE! I actually thought it would be my least favorite but it was the best of all of them! The flavors of cranberry and lemon came together perfectly and it’s hard to describe but this bar was just amazing! Just enough sweetness without being overly sweet. I wish I had another one so I could taste it again! Ahh, nothing beat this one. It was perfect in every way. Cranberry and lemon is one of those combos that is neglected too often, thanks for bringing it back Earnest Eats!
- Almond Trail Mix
I really hate to give this bar a negative review after so many positives, but this bar was gross. It tasted WAAAY too much like almond extract and was not sweet at all. I couldn’t even finish it, yuck.
Overall, I loved the bars and they were the perfect snack for that time after lunch, but before dinner! I love the healthy ingredients and the flavors were all great and tasted amazing! (Except for the one exception!) They should make a pumpkin maple bar, ahhh, that would be heavenly!
The next time you see Earnest Eats products in the store, I really reccomend the Cran Lemon Zest Bar, it. is. the. BEST! Ahh, I love it so much. Be sure to pick one up!
Thanks again to Earnest Eats for allowing me to try and review your products!
Hope you all have a great night!
Oh, and I’d love to know:
Which of their bars or planks looks the most appetizing to you?
