Just like Jess I love Kashi products so I decided to try a new snack bar from their TLC line. I picked up the Dark Chocolate Coconut Fruit & Grain Bar because it was pretty low cal with a decent amount of protein ... and seriously, chocolate & coconut - you can't go wrong. Well, it's great!
I used the layer-by-layer eating approach & started w/ the toppings, nibbled off the chocolate, & munched down on the granola base. Every layer tasted great & totally satisfied my craving! I'm definitely going to buy another box of these when this runs out.
I still rely on my homemade protein cakes for my on-the-go convenience foods but bars like these ease my chocolate cravings and give me a daily sweet. I don't have a huge sweet tooth and i don't add sweeteners to my recipes but it's nice to have one or two sweet things a day. I think this really helps me keep the rest of my diet super clean.
The nutrition stats are pretty great on this bar. Kashi hasn't done me wrong yet!
