Food Find: Skout Organic Trailbars
What is gluten-free, vegan, organic, non-GMO verified and made in glorious Portland, Oregon?
Anyone raised in Tillamook (yes, the home of a certain famous cheese) has to love the outdoors, so no surprise the brothers and father seeked a healthy snack. My Mom grew up in Tillamook and I spent a lot of my youth running the beaches. Somehow, when nibbling on the bars I had a thought: my Mom would have loved these. Down on the beach, getting “God’s salt and pepper” in them (Yeah, my Nana claimed sand was that…sheesh).
Skout has 5 flavors: Blueberry Almond, Cherry Vanilla, Chocolate Peanut Butter, Apple Cinnamon and Chocolate Coconut. PS: The Sampler Pack is the way to try them.
What sets them apart from other bars? Oats! Gluten-free oats that is, setting them even farther apart. No fillers: no questionable gums, thickeners or soy isolates. No whey. Just good ingredients – dates, oats, nuts, sea salt, blue agave and a pinch of sunflower oil.
Soft, pleasantly chewy with plenty of flavor. Low in sodium, a good source of fiber. If you love oats (and we do), you may find yourself with a new fave bar in your backpack.
