Product Review: Grain Free JK Gourmet

Back in December, Grain Free JK Gourmet sent me some complimentary products to sample.  They sent me 2 different kinds of granola, biscotti & some almond flour.  JK Gourmet is located in Canada and was started by Jodi Bager.  After Jodi was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis, she started to look for a drug free way to treat her condition.  It was this journey that inspired her to co-author 2 cookbooks with Jenny Lass and develop Grain Free JK Gourmet’s products.

Nutritional Information:

I shared the granola with Lindsey – she works with Aaron & has helped me out with sampling other items too.  Lindsey preferred the Cranberry Cashew over the Nuts & Raisins and ended up mixing them together for a nice treat!  I have to say that cashews & cranberries are favorites with me, so that is what I am going with as well.  The Nuts & Raisins granola is good, but when comparing, the Cranberry Cashew wins.

The biscotti were awesome!  I have only had biscotti one other time since going gluten-free 4 years ago and these were much better.  I liked the crunch & the almond flavor throughout the biscotti.  While these do seem high in fat, that fat is from almonds – good fat.  Check out the protein content on those puppies!  If I am going to eat “cookies”, I want to get as much bang for my nutritional buck as I can.

Grain Free JK Gourmet products can be purchased via the website or in come Canadian stores.
