Healthy Snacking Options with Willamette Valley Granola Chips – Review & #Giveaway

I am always on the look out for healthy snacks for my kids to eat. They tend to get tired of the same old apple, banana or string cheese to snack on so when I heard about Willamette Valley’s Granola Chips I wanted to try them out.

At Willamette they took a new spin on granola and created a light and crispy, bit-sized chip that is made from whole grains and are a great source of fiber.  They are all natural with whole grains filled with oats, barley, amaranth, and quinoa.  They also come in convenient (and portable!) resealable bags. Each serving has roughly 110 calories!  They have four different flavors to choose from

  • Butter Pecan
  • Wild Berry
  • Honey Nut
  • Vanilla Bean

 

We tried all 4 flavors, and I think my favorite was the wild berry.  My husband and daughter really liked the honey nut.  Now, when I first heard the name granola chips I kind of pictured in my head a chip like a Lays potato chip. But when I opened the bag I was a little surprised to see them. They were definitely chips but they were kind of thicker like a cracker and they tasted sweet not salty. Here’s a better look at them.  These are the wild berry ones.

I really liked these Granola Chips.  They were tasty, sweet, and filling.  I use my little yum yum bowl to help with portion size, and then I’m ready to go!  They are a good source of fiber, low fat, whole grain and they make a perfect healthy snacking option for the whole family.  At least my family loves them.  We just eat them around the house after school or work.  The resealable package makes it easy to throw in the car or in your bag and take when your out running around.  My daughter takes a handful on her way to dance since it’s during dinner on Wednesdays.  It gives her energy and holds her over tell she gets back home and can eat dinner.  We can’t have her dancing on an empty tummy!
