Going Bananas with Oh! Naturals

Are you a snacker?  Do you love bananas?  Do you ever get a yen  for something a little crunchy and a little sweet?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then I have something to share with you that you are going to really love.

Oh! Naturals Flavoured Banana Chips...  now available in three great flavours, Strawberry, Natural, and Chocolate. You can find Oh! Naturals at Safeway stores across Canada,  as well as at Co-op and Sobey stores in Western Canada.  Starting next year, Oh Naturals! will also be available Bulk Barn stores nationwide.

They are made from whole fruit and make a perfect anytime snack because these banana chips:
  • are peanut free
  • are gluten free
  • have no added sugar
  • are salt free
  • are dairy free
Oh! Natural Flavoured Banana Chips are safe in school lunch boxes and can be easily toted along in sports bags or stored in your desk drawer.... they come in a resealable bag so they stay fresh and crispy.




We recently received a generous boxful of the three flavours to sample, and have been really enjoying them in a variety of ways...
  • right out of the bag
  • mixed with nuts and other dried fruits in trail mix
  • as cereal toppings
  • with yogurt
  • dipped in yogurt and peanut butter mixture
  • in my Healthy Breakfast Bowls
  • in my after-workout protein 'sludges'
Oh! Naturals Natural Flavoured Banana Chips, hazelnuts, cashews, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, slivered almonds

Oh! Naturals Chocolate Flavoured Banana Chips topping a mixture of protein powder, milled flax seed, almond milk
 

The three flavours all have very similar Nutritional Information.  This is the back of the Natural bag.



For a generous serving of 28g (approximately 19 - 21 pieces):

 
Weight Watchers P+ = 3.
Calories 127; Protein 1g; Carbohydrate 21 or 22g; Fat 4g; Fibre 1g.


They are made from whole bananas, vegetable oil, natural and artificial flavorings, and the chocolate variety has a chocolate powder which may contain soy.  Very simple ingredient list. Nothing you cannot pronounce here!

We are so excited about this new product that we are making sure to share our samples with friends and neighbors, too, in order to get the word out.  We haven't found anyone yet who has had a negative thing to say... everyone who likes bananas, and crispy, crunchy chips will be sure to enjoy Oh! Naturals Flavoured Banana Chips as much as we do!

Check out the Oh! Naturals web site and look for them on Facebook, too.

I was given this product for review but the opinions are my own.

Do you eat dried fruit?

Do you think you would like dried bananas?

  7. OMG! I love banana chips, but stopped buying the bulk variety because of the added sugar! You've saved my waistline with this post Elle!

    Wonder if they carry them at my local Thrifty Foods? We do have a Safeway nearby, but I rarely go in. Guess I'll be making a trip!
