Challenging the Bar

 Move
over Lara, Luna, and Clif, there’s a new health and wellness snack in town and
it isn’t in the shape of a rectangle.

Blisscuits with Tea CupMariel’s
Kitchen
has created Blisscuits, an all-natural, gluten-free snack crossing the
lines between a biscuit and a cookie. This newfangled health snack is designed
to give balanced health and energy while satisfying hunger and cravings for
sweets. Like many nutrition bars on the market, they have a hint of that common
chalky, dense consistency, but are much more moist and fluffy than most bars.
They best compare to the texture of a tea cake.

 Beyond
“all-natural” and “gluten-free,” Blisscuits contain cage-free egg whites, omega-3
fatty acids and more than 40 percent organic ingredients with no refined sugar
or hydrogenated oils. The generously proportioned cookies have around 120
calories per cookie, 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber.  Although they have a subtle tinge of
additives, they are made with almond meal, coconut milk and blue agave nectar
which act as natural sweeteners instead of artificial flavoring. My favorite flavor
is Classic Cinnamon, but they also come in Orange, Chocolate, and Lemon.

 I’ll
be honest, they are not going to fill the shoes of homemade cookies or breakfast
biscuits, but they are a great alternative to the traditional protein or wellness
bar or to curb that mid-day craving for something sugary. I recommend giving them a try!

    These bars were a little bit dry – I’m sure they would go perfectly with my afternoon cup of tea – but I am always looking for a new guilt-free snack and these bars are great tasting, low in calories and they definitely filled me up!
