Can a snack manage to be tasty while also being low in sugar, low in carbs, gluten free, dairy free, soy free, vegan and suitable for paleo and ketogenic diets? Well if it's an Adonis Nut Bar then it certainly can! My daughter, Julie, had initially planned to try these herself, but unfortunately for her she's developed problems with her throat and jaw so can only eat soft or liquid foods at the moment. Unlucky for her, but lucky for me as I got to try these yummy bars!
I find it quite difficult to find tasty, sweet snacks as I'm gluten intolerant and I'm also trying to cut down on sugar as I've recently been told that I'm pre-diabetic. It's shocking how much sugar is in some so called 'healthy' cereal or nut bars. A lot of 'free from' products also seem to be full of unhealthy ingredients.
Both the vanilla and the pecan bars are absolutely delicious. It's hard to choose a favourite but if I absolutely had to then I'd probably go for the vanilla one as it also contains coconut which I'm a big fan of. The bars are packed full of nuts and other healthy, 100% natural ingredients. The vanilla bars contain acai berries, and the pecan bars contain goji berries - I admit to being a worried about these ingredients as I've never tried them before. I shouldn't have worried though, I absolutely loved the exotic tang that the berries gave the bars.
The nut bars are ideal to keep in your bag for a mid morning snack as they gave me a nice energy boost when I felt myself flagging. I checked my sugar levels after eating the bars, and unlike more sugary snacks it didn't cause a spike in my sugar levels. This is important to me as if my sugar levels rise too quickly my body then works extra hard to reduce them and they then go too low which leaves me feeling awful. The Adonis bars gave me energy without a sugar crash, and they kept me full until lunchtime.
Cost wise, these bars are a bit more expensive than nut bars I've previously bought, but I feel that they are worth the extra pound or two. For the quality of ingredients, as well as the delicious taste, Adonis nut bars are good value for money.
Adonis Smart Foods also make brownies in various flavours, and they look very yummy! For more information please visit https://www.adonis-foods.com
