Simply Eight has created a line of granola bars and cookies which are aptly named Junkless. It’s a name that reflects the attitudes of many people who have become disgruntled with all the overly processed and modified ingredients lining our shelves. Junkless granola bars and cookies are free of all that “junk!”
In fact, the company name, Simply Eight, refers to their commitment for their products to contain no more than eight ingredients that are common, natural, minimally processed, non-GMO Project Verified, and easy to pronounce. Of course, taste is also a priority, and they aim for that homemade flavor and texture they remember from Grandma’s kitchen.
Junkless granola bars currently come in four flavors: Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Strawberry and Cinnamon Roll. Each bar is 31g in size and contains 130 calories. The Strawberry and Cinnamon Roll flavors each have 21g of carbohydrates, six of which are from sugar. The Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavor has 20g of carbohydrates and the Chocolate Chip flavor has 22g of carbohydrates. Both list only 5g of sugar.
The Junkless cookies have similar attributes. They come in Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip flavors. Each has a serving size of three cookies or 28g, contains 120 calories and 9g of sugar. The total carbohydrates varies by one gram. Chocolate Chip has 17g of carbohydrates while Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip only has 16g.
According to their website, Simply Eight products can be found on Amazon and in select grocery stores, such as Safeway-Albertsons and Kroger. However, I was only able to find the granola bars on Amazon. Perhaps the cookies will soon be added to their inventory. The good news, besides the “no junk” part, is that Junkless granola bars are comparably priced with other health food snacks (only $7.99 a box). They’re definitely worth a try.
