U-RAAW! is a Canadian company based in Guelph, Ontario who is making a great new brand of energy bars, smoothie and cereal mixes that not only uses organic, raw, high quality ingredients, but describe each ingredient fully on their website. I’m not sure if they ship outside of Canada, or if they are available in any stores, but you have to go to their website and try something, it’s fun and the final product is really delicious. You can read a lot about U-RAAW! here. They are doing what they do for a very good reason!
I think the coolest thing about U-RAAW is that their website allows anybody to create their own raw, organic products including energy bars, cereal, smoothie mix, and trail mix – and they custom label them for you with whatever name you want, and complete ingredients and nutritional information! You might think, “oh sure, another energy bar”, but you don’t always find the ones in store that have what you want in them. You just choose a product and size, select your ingredients, name it, and they ship it to your door!
I made my own energy bars that have sunflower butter as a base, and are sweetened with raw clover honey and coconut nectar! It’s also packed with sprouted chia, hemp protein, pumpkin seeds, apple, coconut, brown rice crisps, chocolate chips, coconut oil, cacao, cinnamon, maca and buckwheat hearts. I named my bar the “Ry’s Ratings Signature Bar”, as you can see in the picture below. It’s very rich, and tastes like a great chocolate bar because of the chewy texture, raw cacao and my addition of crispy brown rice! I’ll be needing to reorder soon, their website makes it so easy to get it shipped right to our house!
My brother and mom each made their own energy bars too, with totally different recipes! My mom’s “Lisa Is Nutty” bar had lots of nuts, obviously! As you add and take away ingredients, the nutritional panel changes, so that you can control the health of your bar according to your own desires or needs.
My mom also created a custom smoothie mix with açai, cacao, chia, camu camu, and tons of other superfoods that combine together to take you on an awesmazing flavour ride!
I think this would be a great gift for people too! Just be careful, if you have allergies, these products are “may contain”. Also be careful, because they are super addictive and the perfect thing to have stashed away for when you need a quick snack! Fun food that’s good food, and really good for you.
If any of you would like to try the Ry’s Ratings Signature Bar, please let me know!
