So we were ecstatic when they offered to send us some products to sample and bake with. As always, we only agreed to write about the products if we actually liked them but in this case, it was no problem! We fell in love with the products they sent, in particular, the new line of Strong & Kind, savory snack line. These bars feature 10 grams of soy and whey free protein and are absolutely delicious. My favorites are the Roasted Jalapeño and Thai Sweet Chili flavors. KIND uses whole almonds, seeds and pea protein which provide all nine essential amino acids. For more information about their yummy snacks visit www.kindsnacks.com.
We were also sent two bags of KIND Healthy Grains Clusters: Cinnamon Oat Clusters and Raspberry Clusters with Chia Seeds. Both absolutely delicious. So good that B and I had a hard time not eating them all before making a recipe with them! They are made with 100% whole grains including gluten free oats, millet, quinoa, amaranth and buckwheat. Each 50g serving provides more than 1 full serving of whole grains. We thought about what we wanted to make with them and decided on a peach crumble using gorgeous fresh, organic Turkish peaches as we are spending the summer in Istanbul. The crumble was a huge hit and we served it with homemade coconut cream. Our friends had seconds and thirds. We will definitely be making it again soon we just wish we could find their products here in Istanbul! Guess we'll have to stock up next time we're in the States.
The exact recipe will be coming soon.
Thank you so much to Kristi and the KIND team for sending us their delicious samples!
Meanwhile, if you are in Istanbul, be sure to stop by Bi Nevi Karakoy as my sister recently became partner and has started cooking her plant-based dishes there. Let us know what you think!
