New Items: Kodiak Cakes Chewy Crunchy Granola

Afternoon snack cravings are a feeling we all know too well and don’t always know what to do with. You’ve already eaten lunch, but it seems like forever until dinner —so you know you need something to eat in-between. The only problem is, nothing sounds satisfying. Finding smart snacks to satisfy your cravings can be difficult sometimes, but luckily you don’t have to sacrifice great taste for healthier options

Kodiak is here to make it easier, with their NEW Chewy and Crunchy Granola Bars. Made with 100% whole grain ingredients, protein and fiber to help satisfy your hunger and keep you full until dinnertime. Kodiak Chewy bars offer 7 grams of protein per serving, and if crunchy is your preference you can get 10 grams of protein per serving.

Two nutritional components to look for when it comes to smart snacking are protein and whole grains. Protein helps our bodies build and repair muscle tissue and helps you feel fuller, longer. This is partly because protein reduces your body’s level of the hunger hormone, ghrelin, and boosts levels ofpeptide YY, a hormone that makes you feel full.

Whole grains are important because they contain all three parts of a grain: the bran, endosperm, and the germ. Among the many nutritional benefits of eating a whole grain snack is increased amounts of fiber. Fiber is not only important for keeping your digestive system clean but can also help increase that full, satisfying feeling you want from eating a snack. These Kodiak bars offer up a chewy, or crunchy, delicious and balanced option when it comes to snacks for hungry folks of all ages.


Kodiak Cakes - Energize a Protein and Whole Grain Habit!

Ellie Wilson

MS RDN Manager, Health and Wellness

New Year’s resolutions to embrace healthier habits inspire shoppers to look for new products and ideas. So many are working and managing school from home these days, I love finding solutions that connect the dots including easy-to-make, kid-friendly, travel-friendly, versatile and nutritious. The Kodiak Cakes products are delicious solutions with unique benefits to explore.

Power Cakes

The signature flapjack and waffle mixes, in Buttermilk and Honey or Dark Chocolate flavors, are a great starting place. Just add water, and these mixes will kick the day off with over 5 grams of protein per serving, (up to 14 gms in the Dark Chocolate mix!), 100% whole grains, and a good source of fiber to stay full and focused on the morning to-do list. Make extra and freeze them – they make a great lunch, snack or “breakfast-for-dinner” treat. These mixes can also be used for muffins, even batter for chicken nuggets or veggies (did someone say air fryer?). Bonus – both mixes earn the Know Your Colors nutrition guide tags for Protein Smart and Whole Grain!

Frozen Waffles and Flapjacks

The same whole grain goodness and even more convenience when you add these to the basket! Flavors adults and children love, and something older children/teens can make themselves, so super for beyond breakfast snack attacks! All three flavors – Buttermilk Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, and Blueberry Chia make the grade for Know Your Colors Whole Grain and Protein Smart.

Baking Mixes

You know you have a hit when your 17-year-old decides to make the protein-packed cornbread into muffins he can take to school! With 10 gms of protein per prepared serving, as well as 3 gms fiber and less than 10 grams of sugar, this item hits the mark and aligns with several of the healthier eating recommendations reinforced last week with the release of the new Dietary Guidelines for Americans – increase whole grain intake, increase fiber intake, and limit added sugars. Check out the whole line – the brownie and blueberry mixes are also made with whole grains, check the labels for more nutrition information and some great recipe variations on the side of the box.

Oatmeal Cups

Another hit with all age groups – these power 100% whole grain breakfast cups are easy and delicious, with flavors like Maple Brown Sugar – just add water (or milk, for a little extra nutrient boost) and cook in the microwave while coffee is brewing, they are also great for tweens and teens starting to cook, (placed strategically at the front of the pantry to inspire better after-school snacking on a cold day), and are a smart item to keep handy in a desk drawer at work for a power lunch. Bonus – they earn the Know Your Colors Protein Smart guide!

Kodiak Cakes Crunchy Granola Bars

High up in the mountains of Park City, Utah, the folks over at Kodiak Cakes have spent their spring perfecting a new snack for adventurers, explorers, and hungry people across the country. We are proud to introduce our brand-new Kodiak Cakes Crunchy Granola Bars. That’s right, be
still my beating heart, because the whole-grain, non-GMO oats that people know and love from our Kodiak Cakes Power Oats have taken on a whole new form.

Our bars are light, crispy, and packed with the protein that folks who are on-the-go need to get through whatever task lay ahead. So, whether you’re scaling a mountain, taking a break on the sidelines, packing a lunch, or digging through the pantry, we think we may have created your new favorite snack. With flavors like Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Oat & Honey, and Maple Brown Sugar, there’s a frontier inspired granola bar for everybody.

The pioneers of yesteryear may not have had the luxury of getting the nutrients they needed for rugged expeditions from a single perfectly-packaged snack — but we do. These bars may feature hearty, rustic ingredients, but they’re made to fit today’s frontier. They’re convenient, delicious, balanced, and… did we mention crunchy?

So, what else sets our bars apart? Well, like everything that comes out of the Kodiak Kitchen —the ingredients are what matter most. So, when we created this recipe, we made sure to only use whole grain, non-GMO rolled oats, and no artificial preservatives. Besides making our bars more filling and protein-packed, it also means they’re lighter with an unmatched crunch.

But, don’t even start to worry about pockets, cupholders, or countertops because our bars have significantly fewer crumbs than the competition. That’s right, less mess and more yum — making them a great choice for little cubs or messy grown Grizzlies.
