Bubba’s Fine Foods – The perfect snack for my family

About a week ago Bubba’s Fine Foods sent us a package of 5 snacks to try

I had never heard of them before so naturally, I had to do a little bit of research. And…You can’t really say you’ve researched a food without trying it right? So there I was “researching” on the sofa and within just a few minutes I was left with an empty bag of Garlic Parm Banana Chips. Lol oops! (so yeah… I filled my empty bag.. ok, bags… with paper for this photo)

I never tried flavored banana chips before so I’m not sure if these are the best out there, but they’re really freaking good! Savory, crunchy, and addictive – did I mention they’re 100% real food and no refined sweeteners? There are very few snacks out there with these elements and taste – I’m definitely customer for life.

What I love about Bubba’s Fine Foods is that they’re made with REAL ingredients which means REAL flavors and they pack a great source of energy for my kids. We snacked on the granola, ‘nana chips, and snack mixes all day at the pool this weekend.

Out of my entire package, the Bourbon Vanilla Ungranola was absolutely my fav.

Perfect for topping yogurt bowls with fruit (for the kids) and then topping a bowl of Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey ice cream for me…after the babies went to sleep (it’s called self love, mama)

 

Can’t wait to make a batch of energy bites with these!

Does anyone else have kids that constantly ask for snacks?

I feel like I’m walking into the kitchen every hour or more…. In the morning to early afternoon I can get away with fruits and some veggies but after 3 servings of cherries or baby carrots with ranch — my kids want the real goods. I’m not talking about the organic stuff I keep out in their view: They start asking for all the goodies I’m hiding in the top cabinet or on top of the fridge lol They want the potato chips packed with nasty oils, the artificial cheese, chocolate and candies (and yes, we have these type of snacks in our house because.. we’re human?)

Here’s where I whip out my bags of Bubba’s Fine Foods Snack Mixes.

Again, real foods with real ingredients.

They taste SO good and I feel good giving these to my kids.

Note: These didn’t last long, buy 2.

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bar Snack Recipe

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Squares

Hi all! Recently I had a few friends over and I had some of my Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares out on my counter. Everyone plus the kids liked them and I thought I’d take a quick moment to share.

My kids love this because it’s sweet and chewy with little bits of crunch. It’s the perfect snack to keep in a zip lock in my purse and has been especially proven useful to me when my 2 year old is getting fussy. I will admit her hands can get a little sticky afterwards but her little toddler hands get sticky anyway so it’s never been a big deal for me. (Baby wipes!)

Kid friendly snack recipe! These Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bars were a hit with my 2 year old.

Chewy And Sweet Nut Seed Fruit Squares Raw Bar Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of whatever nuts, seeds or dry fruit you want
  • 2 spoonfuls of sugar
  • 2 spoons of brown rice syrup
  • 1 spoon of water
  • parchment paper/baking pan

For my version (pictured) I used:

Pumpkin seeds
Peanuts
Pine nuts
Chopped almonds
Sunflower seeds
Teeny bit of leftover quick oats (not cooked)

  • Feel free to chop up any kind of nuts, seeds and dry fruit and fill your 2 cups.
  • Brown rice syrup is a healthier alternative to corn syrup.

Directions

  1. On medium heat roast your nuts/seeds mix in a pan until slightly fragrant.  (Optional because you can decide to keep your nuts/seeds mix raw)
  2. Turn off heat and mix in your dry fruit
  3. In another pan have your sugar, rice syrup and water and start heating on medium/low. Once your mixture is melted and starts to bubble turn off the heat and mix in your nut mix. (Another great version of this is when you add 1-2 thin slices of ginger to the syrup mix and remove them before mixing in your nuts/seeds). Note: Careful not to burn your syrup!
  4. Mix everything together well, once everything starts to cool down you’ll feel all the sugar mix getting thicker and stickier.
  5. Have a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Pour your mix into the baking pan and use another paper to press down and flatten your mix.
  6. Leave everything out at room temperature for about an hour. This keeps the bars more chewy and easier to eat for the kids.
  7. Remove your nut/seed block from the pan and cut it into little squares or bars.
  8. Keep in ziplock or airtight container for up to 7 days.

Enjoy! Let me know in the comments if you’ve ever tried this or have any questions!
