Clif Mojo Trail Mix Bars

June17

I am forever on the look out for a “granola” or snack bar that tastes like it was made in my own kitchen and the first ingredient is not sugar.  I was recently sent samples of a bar that is just the ticket.  No wonder it tastes homemade- the idea was born during a Clif Bar & Company employee campout in the Sierra Nevada.  The founder of Clif Bars-Cliff Erickson pulled out a cookie sheet with a snack that he had baked.  Much tinkering and testing later, a sweet and salty line of trail mix bars was invented.  My readers know that sweet and salty is my favourite combination, especially when it is made with primarily (70%) organic ingredients like nuts, delicious fruit and huge chunks of dark chocolate.

The three samples that I was sent were Coconut Almond Peanut, Dark Chocolate Cherry Almond (I am passing this one along to D who loves chocolate and cherry pairings) and Dark Chocolate Almond Sea Salt which I just now enjoyed.  I had time for only a nibble for lunch (a piece of unsalted ham rolled around a wedge of old cheddar cheese) as I am getting ready for a food styling gig later this week.  In my mind, I could more than justify the 200 calories and a little bit of sweetness (from organic tapioca syrup).

The little bar was rich and satisfying and it is bound to hold me as I run errands and get my groceries purchased for food styling.  I hate shopping with an empty tummy as I typically make unhealthy and impulsive purchases when I do.  The Real Canadian Superstore sells the product so I can fuel up in the future without being tempted by chocolate bars.

PS I tried the Coconut Almond Peanut Bar the next day and LOVED it.  Chock full of both almonds and peanuts, the coconut completed the nutty taste trio.  This will be my fav snack from here on in.
