Welcome to Day #7 of Chocolate and Oats Theme Week.
Today's Almond Cacao Crunch was distributed by Straw Propeller Gourmet Foods, Inc. (Redmond, OR).
Made with Organic, gluten free oats, organic coconut sugar, organic almonds, organic cacao nibs and a smidge of sea salt, this oatmeal provided a satisfying warm breakfast.
I really liked that this was not too sweet (thank you!). Cacao nibs added natural essential chocolate flavor—without the added sugar (usually present when dark chocolate is added). And almonds added a bit of nutty flavor and protein.
Straw Propeller offers a variety of oatmeal flavors, including Chocolate Strawberry (look for that to be featured soon); Banana Pancakes; Hemp and Honey; and Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, as well as seasonal flavors like Oh My, Pumpkin Pie. (They company also offers grain-free options.)
