One of my all time favorite healthy snacks!!
@barnana makes snacks from upcycled bananas 🍌 Their goal is to put an end to food waste by using the bananas that dont quite meet the standards to leave the farm🍌They make more than these brittles (although theyre seriously to die for)-- from plantain chips to banana bites 🍌 gluten free, vegan, usda organic, non gmo 🍌 Whats one of your favorite go-to health snacks
GFREE HAUL..... some new little gluten free snacks I picked up tonight. @lilys_sweets_chocolate gluten free and is soooo delicious and made with dark chocolate and stevia and NO ADDED SUGAR. @lilys_sweets_chocolate is also vegan and non GMO. Next up is the @bobsredmill NEW gluten free oat bars in peanut butter and banana, jelly and oats and peanut butter and chocolate. I found these bars a few weeks ago and was able to try them and they were love ❤️ at first BITE. But, unfortunately I went back to get them again and they were sold out not at just one store but all of them. Well... tonight I found them @thefreshmarket and I am super pumped. Also @thefreshmarket I picked up a box of the @nairnsoatcakes gluten free oat Graham’s. These are light and crispy and have 35% less sugar compared to similar cookies. I also grabbed a bag of the @barnana organic chewy peanut butter banana bites. These are made from upcycled bananas and are vegan, gluten free and earth friendly. Last but not least @marshalls I picked up a bag of cashew coconut crunch with key lime drizzle. These are also gluten free of course and are NOT made with high fructose corn syrup. I love trying new gluten free snacks I find it’s kind of exciting to be honest. And this is another reason why I would looove to open a gluten free only store with all the latest and greatest and everyone’s favorite gluten free snacks and products. Like I said before I usually have a few gluten free items I like from multiple stores so I dream of being able to really do some one stop shopping. Highly suggest the @bobsredmill bars out of all my treats tonight they are AMAZING! #glutenfree #bobsredmillglutenfree #nairnsoatcakes #glutenfreesnacks #barnana #lilyschocolate #celiacdisease

Hey!! Today I tried out Brazilian BBQ Barnana brand plantain chips. They’re a lil salty for my liking, but they’re not bad overall! Solid crunch & pretty filling. #barnana #vegan #vegansnacks #whatveganseat
-chewy banana bites 🍌
-💵$14 for 3 pack (each pack has 100 banana bites) + free shipping -other products by Barnana: plaintain chips, banana brittle
- In 2012, 3 founders launched Barnana with a mission to “end food waste on organic banana farms.” Basically, they take the bananas that are scuffed, a little too ripe, or aren’t the perfect size, and dehydrate them to make yummy snacks. Each bag has 3-5 bananas. The product is a winner in a few key areas:
1. Marketing - banana farmers lose up to 20% of their yield due to imperfect bananas. This product has a strong no-waste, eco-friendly marketing message.
2. Finance - Imperfect bananas are 90% cheaper than regular bananas bananas.
3. Demand: More and more consumers want better-for-you snacks and Americans love bananas. Americans consumer more bananas 🍌than apples 🍏and oranges 🍊combined!
For 2 years, the co-founders grinded without paying themselves, doing product formulation and getting feedback from farmers markets. 👨 🌾 In 2014, they featured the product at an Expo, and they raised a small $300K seed round, and won spots in Whole Foods and Wegman’s. In terms of their current business, they’re making more than $10M a year, they have 90% ACV (distribution metric) in Whole Foods, and Barnana Bites is approximately 90% of their sales.
I LOVE the taste of these and will definitely be repurchasing. Imagine you had a banana-flavored gummy, made it slightly softer, then reduced the sugar - that’s what this tastes like. I don’t know why dry banana snacks always come in those hard chips, but the chew on this is so much more palatable. Though the visual of the banana bite on the packaging doesn’t resemble the dark glob product inside, it reinforces the idea that this food is straight up, 100%, natural banana, which reminds me I’m not eating gummies.
✨Fun Fact: Originally they were going to launch a bar, but an investor advised against it, warning them of the competition. They then pivoted to bites (...remind anyone of @sirensnacks)

🍌HEALTHY SNACK ALERT🍌
FIRST...Don’t be fooled by packaging! Even if it says all the right things on the front, turn over the package and READ THE INGREDIENTS! 🤦🏼♀️ Most “healthy snacks” contain canola oil. That’s a NO. It’s not even a real oil. It’s man made. GAH! Remember, we are creating a healthier lifestyle and that begins with knowing your ingredients! KNOWLEDGE IS POTENTIAL POWER! 😁
Ok, I’m done yelling. 🤪 Check this out! I have found an amazing brand of snack foods that checks all of my ‘must not contain’ boxes.
First of all, @barnana has the absolute BEST plantain chips on the market. I can only find them at WholeFoods here in the great state of DE but you may be able to find them in your bigger grocery/health food stores. However, I did find these at my local Giant (not to be confused with Ohio’s Giant Eagle, completely different).
@barnana Banana Brittle! YES, please! It’s crunchy, it’s grain free, it’s non-gmo, it’s paleo friendly, it’s a company that cares about the environment by upcycling!! And they use coconut oil in their ingredients! Can I get a hallelujah! 🙌🏼
So when you’re looking for a cookie, maybe even some candy, I want you to stop and remember this....there are healthier options to satisfy your cravings! You don’t have to eat junk! It’s a choice!
This is how we win the war over sabotage and shame! How cool is that!
😁 Now go getcha some and continue on that healthy path!
**not a paid sponsor just genuinely love this brand! ❤️
