No secret here: We love granola. And, if you’re reading this blog, chances are you do too. That’s why we want to spill the crumbles and announce Little Red Wagon Granola’s new vegan granola bars! We’ve been working on this delicious new addition for a while because we wanted to perfect the details. Now that it’s available via our online store, here’s what you can expect!
You Asked for Vegan Granola Bars, And We Answered
We never ignore customer requests or suggestions because they improve our products. Over the years, we’ve been asked about the possibility of a Little Red Wagon Granola bar and stored your opinions and preferences in the vault—until now.
We knew our customers wanted an allergen-free bar, so it’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and nut-free (with the exception of coconut). We checked those boxes without sacrificing flavor. Oh, speaking of that…
Yum Without the Yuck
So many mass-produced granola bars are marketed as healthy and do contain healthy things like fiber and vitamins. Unfortunately, they may also contain large amounts of high fructose corn syrup, palm oil, or an excessive amount of unhealthy fat.
To offer a more balanced alternative, our new, chewy vegan granola bars contain the following ingredients in order of amount:
- Rolled Oats
- Crushed Oats
- Baking Powder
- Chia Seeds
- Pumpkin Seeds
- Coconut Oil
- Coconut Milk
- Maple Syrup
- Vanilla Extract
- Sweet Potato
The oats are packed with soluble fiber, resistant starch, protein, calcium, and several vitamins and minerals. Similarly, chia seeds contain all that, plus omega-rich fatty acids. In contrast, pumpkin seeds are rich in magnesium, lignans, and zinc.
As a nod to our southern roots, we also included sweet potato. Obviously, it tastes great and is like nature’s pudding when cooked, but it’s also a nutritional powerhouse. This humble root vegetable has cancer-fighting anthocyanins and supports skin and vision health with beta-carotene. Plus, sweet potato’s vitamin C content boosts immunity while the B6 content supports healthy brain function.
We’re so excited to offer a new product that tastes as good as it feels. Plus, it’s a chewy consistency that won’t disintegrate all over the place as you enjoy it.
