Redd Bar REVIEW – Superfood Energy Bars – A Gluten-Free, Vegan Snack Bar With Clean Ingredients

When that afternoon fatigue and hunger pang hits me, I need something to recharge myself with. If you are looking for a good, clean source of energy, look no further than to Redd Bar Superfood Energy Bars. Today I am sharing my Redd Bar review with you on the blog for Tried It Out Tuesday. These snack bars are gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, and contain 35mg of caffeine per bar. These bars will give you the jolt that you need without any jitters. What I love about these snack bars is that they only use pure and natural ingredients in their bar. You will not find anything strange lurking inside these. They also taste fantastic!

They come in five different flavors: Chocolate, Salted Caramel (my favorite!), Peanut Butter, Mint Chocolate, and Oatmeal.

Redd Bar is actually 3 items in one handy snack: protein bar + energy shot + multivitamin.

It is a convenient snack that is a nutritional powerhouse. I am confident that you will be adding them on the regular for your snack rotation.

Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix REVIEW – Gluten-Free Baking Mix – From Ordinary To Extraordinary

Last night I made a wonderful healthy dinner. We had chicken marinated in Primal Kitchen Honey Mustard and some roasted broccoli. I really wanted a dessert though and then I remembered that I had a bag of Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie & Bar Mix stored away in the pantry. I am a big fan of Pamela’s line of gluten-free products and I have tried several and have been quite satisfied. It was a first for me, though, making her oatmeal cookies. I doctored up the cookie mix to take it from ordinary to extraordinary. No shame in using a mix to create your baked goodies! This mix was outstanding and the cookies are disappearing quick! Read my Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie review to find out more about this gluten-free baking mix.

 

My Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix review

I gathered up my ingredients for the cookies I was making with Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie & Bar Mix . The recipe called for butter but instead of butter, I ended up using Barlean’s Butter Flavored Coconut Oil. This coconut oil is a healthy alternative for butter and can be used in place of butter in most, if not all, recipes.

 

 

I knew raisins belonged in my oatmeal cookies and I had some Simple Truth raisins in the pantry, a nice fresh bag!

Gotta have my Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips!!

To make my husband happy (because he is obsessed with chocolate chip cookies) I added in some Enjoy Life Dark Chocolate Chips. I just can not say enough nice things about those chocolate chips from Enjoy Life. They are vegan and free from all common food allergens. They taste fantastic. I have a confession to make too. Sometimes I eat those chocolate chips straight out of the bag as a little snack. They are so freaking yummy.

Chia seeds & spicing things up!

I started up the KitchenAid Stand Mixer (my BFF in the kitchen right now!) and got all of my ingredients mixed up and then I continued to add a few more things. I added some Simple Truth black chia seeds (about a tablespoon) and then I gave it a heavy shake of my McCormick Organic Cinnamon, Nutmeg, and Chia spice blend. I love that spice so much and it comes in handy for some of my baked breakfast creations.

What I recommend for bakeware

For my baking, I really love the Circulon Bakeware. I have the bakeware set in chocolate. I sprayed my sheet pan with some coconut oil and the surface is nonstick. I have never had a problem removing anything off of this bakeware. You can find the cookie sheet on Amazon. This is the bakeware I have ever owned. I have had it since early this year and I am thoroughly impressed with it.

Gluten-Free Oatmeal, Raisin, Chocolate Chip, and Chia Cookies

I did not take long for these cookies to bake. I believe it took 12 minutes. That 12 minute waiting period was agonizing for me. I could not wait to take a cookie off the tray and have a nice, warm one. Warm cookies are the best… a true comfort food for most I would say!

Pour yourself a glass of milk for your oatmeal cookie

I poured myself a glass of Unsweetened Califia Farms Almond Milk and I mixed in a scoop of Primal Kitchen Collagen Fuel. I dipped my cookie into the milk and a had a tremendous FOODGASM! I was really on the struggle bus trying not to consume every single cookie that was on the tray. They turned out just that good! I will admit it, I did end up eating three warm cookies. Not a healthy choice but I ended up going for a long walk with my dog to burn off some of the cookies.

Final thoughts on Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix

I usually avoided using mixes for the past year. I figured I was better off DIY’ing the whole recipe for it myself. But if you are doing any kind of gluten-free baking the cost of ingredients really inflates and seems astronomical. So to me, it just seems more cost effective to spring for a mix. Most of what you need is there in the mix and you can doctor them up yourself any way that you would like. We all enjoyed Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie Mix and would definitely buy it again in the future!

How do you make your cookies special if you are using a mix? I’m really happy with the outcome of these. Leave me a comment and let me in on your cookie secrets! Hope you enjoyed this Pamela’s Oatmeal Cookie review and I hope it inspires you to give it a whirl!
