Nairns Oat Crackers and Cookies #Giveaway

Nairns Oat Crackers and Cookies

Since having Ava I have been looking more carefully into the foods that we eat and have successfully cut down on simple carbs, over-processed grains like white rice and for the most part I’ve completely cut out wheat.  I love finding alternatives that fit my new lifestyle that are also delicious.

Nairn’s Oat Crackers and Cookies are available in Canada in seven delicious flavours, all made from wheat free recipes with whole grain oats. They are high in fibre and naturally energizing to keep you going throughout the day.  They also contain zero trans or hydrogenated fats, and absolutely no GM ingredients, artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives.

I was sent a package of each of Nairn’s products to try out myself and I was definitely impressed!

 

Nairns Oat Crackers and Cookies

The cookies were all a real treat and all three flavours are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.  My favourite though were the Dark Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies, you wouldn’t think from their indulgent flavour that they could be even remotely healthy.  Yet they are made with whole grain oats, no hydrogenated fat, wheat free and a good source of fiber. 

Nairn’s Stem Ginger Oat Cookies really surprised me with their flavour.  Literally.  It was one of those situations where I reached for them and expected the Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies without looking and had a moment of “Oh Gee!  That is GINGER!”  They are baked with stem and ground ginger so they have a real intense ginger flavour.

Nairn’s Mixed Berries Oat Cookies are full of dried cranberries and flavoured with raspberry I love the crunch paired with the slight chew of the cranberries and the flavour is amazing.  These were my favourite paired with my afternoon tea.

Nairns Oat Crackers and Cookies

When it came to the crackers my favourite were the Scottish Cheese Oat Crackers.  I actually hid them away from my family after my first bite and refused to share.   These cheese oat crackers are made with mature cheddar cheese and whole grain oats.  They have an amazing texture – crunchy but not in a brittle or traditional “cracker-y” way and the flavour is beyond that of any cheese flavoured cracker I’ve tasted before.  It just pairs so well with the oats its truly amazing.

Nairn’s makes Organic Oat Crackers with organic oats grown to the Soil Association’s strict guidelines and vegan.    The Nairn’s Rough Oat Crackers have a lovely toasted oat flavour.  Both are amazing alone or paired with toppings.  They are actually a perfect canvas for other flavours but I kind of like them on their own too.  Their unique crunch and the oat flavour make these so satisfying.

If you prefer something lighter, try Nairn’s Oat Crackers with Sunflower Seeds, they are still full of oats, fiber and complex carbs that give you a natural boost but they are much lighter while remaining crisp.
