Review: Nature Valley Products #sponsored

Disclosure:  I was provided sample products as shown in the photo in exchange for my honest opinions.

I am at that point in life when things are really hectic at times.  Kids are in sports, clubs and other activities and I work two jobs.  So, there are those moment when we need a nutritious quick meal or a snack on the run.  I was really happy to learn of a variety of products that Nature Valley has now and want to share my thoughts about them.

  • Nature Valley Breakfast Biscuits--These are flat biscuits made with 100% natural whole grain oats.  They contain 28 g of whole grain oats in each serving, which is 4 biscuits.  I had them for breakfast today along with a bowl of fruit and it filled me up and kept me going.  They tasted a little too sweet to me (and I have a sweet tooth), and reading the label, there is 11 grams of sugar.  Compare that to a bowl of sweetened cereal, it is probably much less.  This is something I do like and will definitely keep on hand.  These are available in Blueberry and Honey and run about $3.89 a box (5 pouches).
  • Nature Valley Greek Yogurt Protein Bars--I LOVE THESE!  They have the right combo of sweetness of the yogurt and fruit combined with crunchy peanuts and almonds.  This is a great source of protein--10 grams per serving.  They are available in two flavors--Mixed Berry and Strawberry.  The price runs about $4.49 a box.
  • Nature Valley Protein Granola in Cranberry Almond--This is a bag of loose granola that is perfect to use for cereal, as a topping for yogurt or to just grab a handful to eat.  It is an excellent source of protein with 10 grams per serving (1/2 cup) and nearly half the recommended daily allowance of whole grains (at least 22 grams).  I wasn't able to try this as it may contain pecans and that is a no-no for me.  However, it does come in two other varieties: Oats 'n Honey and Oats 'n Dark Chocolate.  I plan to check those out (especially the chocolate one).  The price on this also runs around $4.49 a bag.

I do like these products, too, because they don't contain high fructose corn syrup and a lot of other junk.  I can feel good about eating these and giving them to my kids.  And watch your coupons, seems I see coupons for Nature Valley products quite often.  In fact, you can visit their site and print off coupon HERE.
