Skip the traditional granola bar idea of using oats, and try a quinoa version. That’s exactly what I Heart Keewah Cranberry Cashew does, by combining quinoa, cashews, and dried cranberries in a delicious bite-size piece. And without any added fillers and using all-natural ingredients, this turned out to be a sweet and flavorful, delicious snack that can easily satisfy your sweet tooth.
There’s great balance in the use of the mild nutty flavor of quinoa, with the tart, yet sweet cranberries together into one delicious bite. They are crunchy yet chewy pieces that aren’t dry at all. And if you’re a fan of dried cranberries or dried cherries, you’re sure to enjoy that sweet burst of flavor. The pieces are great size for when you want a snack here and there, such as at your desk, during those long car rides, when you’re running errands, or when you simply just want a tasty snack. The last scenario happens to be my excuse.
