Product Review: Raw Revolution Re-Makes High Protein Gluten Free Bar

Looking for a gluten-free whole-food boost in a bar?  I've rather been looking for the most bang for my buck in bars recently -- protein, micronutrients, and whatever else one might be able to throw in.   Raw Revolution, an all-woman owned organic , dropped samples of their new vegan GLO Bar on my stoop this last week.  And these protein-packed bars have a lot of bang, nutritionally speaking.

The sample box they dropped me contained both Peanut Butter andDark Chocolate and Caramel and Mixed Nut.

Both hit 10g of protein or above, are sprouted, vegan, made in a dedicated gluten-free facility, and raw. Unlike most other bars on the market, they also boast a dead-low sugar count -- 4g top from brown rice syrup.

But GLO Bars are also a unique nutrition balance.  Unlike most bars, gluten-free or otherwise, they've re-balanced their macronutrient combination entirely.  Vegan, but low carbohydrate, with rather an astronomical fibre content, these little blokes fill you up.

I suppose …

Recipe: Coffee 'n' Cream, and Bananas - Gluten Free

Dash it all  -- and toss it all in: that's some days.

It even applies to baking.  Even gluten-free baking.  Whatever the maxim is about baking being a science, cooking more of a love affair, anyone who has a familiarity with simple gluten-free flours and food can make quick breads and cookies in a cracked-egg second.

Good ones.

I baked these off the end of a product review for Equal Exchange, because I had coffee on hand, and bananas burning a brown-spot on my counter.  Or at least, they were looking and smelling brown.
