Food Review: Oskri Organics Quinoa Bar

Quinoa is one of my favorite whole grains because it has a wonderfully fluffy texture, it's easy to cook, and it's high in fiber and protein. So when I saw this organic Quinoa Bar ($3), I had to give it a try. Theses bars are both gluten and lactose free, making them a bonus for people with food sensitivities.

When I read the list of ingredients, something surprised me. To learn the surprise as well as how the Quinoa Bar tastes,


I was surprised that this bar contains only four ingredients: rice syrup, quinoa, sesame seeds, and date syrup. The crunchy texture and flavor are similar to toffee covered popcorn — really, it was that sweet — but in a peanut buttery way. I love that whole sesame seeds and quinoa are plainly visible in this bar. Plus there are three slices in each package, so I could savor each sweet and nutty bite. I actually couldn't eat the whole package though because it was so sweet, like candy, but as you can see from the nutritional info, it's pretty healthy for you. It may seem like it contains a lot of fat, but it's healthy fat that comes mostly from the sesame seeds. It also has a decent amount of fiber and protein too. If you're in the mood for something extremely sweet and crunchy, this would definitely satisfy your craving.

I LOVE THIS BAR. Seriously, I lived on them during my dissertation last year. I was buying 10-12 of them at a time!! It was quite an addiction. I can't eat them now though because it reminds me of all the dissertation stress I went through. I bought one a few weeks ago and it's still sat in the cupboard. ;)

I bet you could make these yourself for super-cheap: Make a peanut-brittle base and stir in toasted sesame seeds and cooked quinoa, then spread it out and let it cool and cut it into bars. I bet it would taste very similar.

Oooh I've seen this in the shop but never bought one because I've been unsure of whether it would taste nice. I might try now.
