Autumn is one of my favorite times of the year. There is something homely and comfortable about the warm breezy afternoons and the wafting scent of cinnamon and spice that begins to welcome you after every passing door. It almost seems that no matter where you go apples and pumpkins lay in wait for the beginning of the baking season. Sunbelt Bakery has already begun putting out their fall flavors for the back-to-school season. Their Apple Spice and Pumpkin Harvest finding little lunch bags for busy learners, including Tot. Here is a peek at some of the wonderful fruit and granola bars from Sunbelt Bakery.
Apple Spice is one of the new seasonal flavors this year. You can taste the hint of cinnamon and clove with bits of apple mixed in to the soft granola that Sunbelt Bakery is loved for. It honestly encompasses autumn in every bite and reminds me a lot of hot apple cider.
Pumpkin Harvest is very similar, however, tastes exactly like a pumpkin pie. If you love pumpkin pie, then this will be an especially sweet treat for you! Imagine mixing pumpkin pie with a crisp and baking it to perfection. You almost want to put whip cream on top!
Banana Harvest is a little different and is made with natural flavors. There’s a little bit of a crunch to these bars as they are mixed with tiny bits of banana chips. Very similar to a banana cream pie without all the fuss. These are one of my new all time favorites!
Another favorite that has come back this season (and quickly became Tot’s obsession) is Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip. One of the best of the best granola bars wrapped up in tiny little peanut and chocolate chips. These did not last very long in my house!
However, I must feature one more bar that is not a granola bar, it’s a Fruit & Grain Bar made with real strawberries and topped off with a little icing. I put these into Tot’s lunch when I want him to have something sweet. They’re delicious and beautiful at the same time, just as any good bakery item should be.
Of course Sunbelt Bakery has all their old favorites: Oat & Honey, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chip, Low Fat Oatmeal Raisin and Golden Almond. All of which are made with honest-to-goodness ingredients with bakery fresh taste. They have over 20 Granola’s and Bars, all of which are made with no preservatives.
So the next time you wander into the store and the first scent that hits you is cinnamon and spice, remember that the fall flavors from Sunbelt Bakery are waiting on the shelves. They’re great for back-to-school lunches, after school snacks and for parents to sneak off and eat in the bathroom. Ssshh!
