Today was Day #9 of Chocolate and Cranberry Theme Week. A secondary suffix to this theme has been "... and Oats/Oatmeal." In keeping with that fact, I paired two Certified Gluten-Free and Soy Free items from Zing Bars (Seattle, WA): an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Bar and a Cashew Cranberry Orange Bar.

These held together nicely, with the help of cashew nut butter -- the #1 ingredient listed for both bars. (Zing also makes bars with peanut butter.)

Each bar contained 10 grams of protein (from nuts, oats and seeds and whey protein/rice protein). Dark chocolate chips added tiny bursts of chocolate flavor in the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip bar. And, dried cranberries and Organic orange oil flavor gave the second bar a subtle, uplifting fruit zing.
