Delicious Improvements

We've also made some improvements to our Bake-at-Home Oatmeal Energy bars. For starters, they are now called "Power Snacks". Our Bake-at-Home Power Snacks continue to provide a wholesome balance of proteins, good fats, and whole grains and we have made some basic changes described below. Let us know what you think!

  1. First, for the Cranberry, we decided to remove the walnuts. This way, people with allergies can also enjoy the bars. We also would rather give our customers the option of adding 1/3 cup of fresh walnuts (or any nuts for that matter) if they like. Making this change slightly reduces omega-3s and protein (about 1g less), but as we mentioned you can customize with nuts and add that back in. To compensate, we have added even more anti-oxidant rich cranberries.
  2. In both Cranberry and Chocolate Chip, we have improved the glycemic response by replacing some of the evaporated cane juice (sugar) with natural fructose (same sugars occurring in fruit), and rice syrup solids. So even though the actual grams are comparable, fructose and rice syrup solids are known to have a lower glycemic response than sugar.
  3. We also replaced some of the Soy Protein Isolate with whole ground soy nuts. This is more of a "whole food" than the isolate (which is more processed). This caused a 1g reduction in protein – but at Matisse & Jack's we believe in whole food nutrition and felt this was a good choice. However, we do include a recipe variation on the side of the box that will show you how to easily add extra protein if that is what you are looking for in the bars. That's the great thing about a bake-at-home snack!
  4. Finally, we have simplified the recipe on the back of the box to include just applesauce and a few tbsp oil. However, for those of you who like making your bars with the original 1/2c vanilla [soy]yogurt + 2/3c applesauce, you can still do this with excellent results!
