Healthy Vegan Energy Bars.
Life can be topsy turvy at times. I was in Ojai, Southern California recently and saw a display of Nak’d Bars in the local organic grocery store. I was excited to spot them there. I had first came across the raw, natural vegan bars at their launch in 2012 in the UK. I had been invited along for a fun evening and I met with Jamie Combs, the co-founder of Nak’d. See the video and blog post Video interview & post from the 2012 UK launch. So, why topsy turvy you wonder? Well, Jamie is American, living in the UK. I am British and my travels have just taken me to Ojai, just north of Los Angeles. And this is where Nak’d have their US head quarters. Weird? Well, ok maybe not. What can I say? I am a coincidence junky. I see that stuff out.
Anyway, Nak’d are now pushing out their reach in America. I just wanted to let you know that. They sent me a box to sample and I’ve slowly been munching my way through them. After a run, after dinner, after another bar… If you want a healthy vegan, raw, gluten free bar to pop in your bag…these are your babies. My favs are the Mocha, the Banana Crunch, Rhubarb & Custard and the elusive (some wonder if it is just a myth) Bakewell Tart. This one is bliss for me. Nak’d have captured the flavour beautifully of the English tart my mother used to make us as children for Sunday tea. A layer of crumbly shortcake pastry, a layer of tart and sweet jam, then a sponge made with almond flour. It is heaven. Vegan versions abound. I found this one..looks great. Sub out the plain flour for a gluten free flour and Bob’s your Uncle! If you find a Nak’d Bakewell Tart Bar..snatch it up, go someplace quiet and savour-every-little-bite.
