Adventure Snacks Review

I recently came across Adventure Snacks on Instagram and was instantly drawn to their Chocolate Beetroot muffin! Perth mum Tracey created her make-at-home mixes to give parents convenient and healthy options that don't contain refined sugar and preservatives.

I am always looking for healthy options for little Miss' afternoon snack or lunch box so I thought we'd review Adventure Snacks and support Tracey on her journey! 

Tracey currently has three make-at-home mixes: Choc-Beet Muffin Mix (93% organic), Cranberry Fig & Seed Balls Mix (100% organic) and Oat & Carrot Cookie Mix (95% organic). We trialled the Mini Mix 3 Pack which makes 6 of each products.

Little Miss wanted to start with the Cranberry, Fig & Seed Balls Mix so we started rolling! The packet contained a sachet of various seeds (organic sunflower seeds, organic pepitas, organic black chia seeds and dried fruits (organic dried cranberries, organic dried figs and organic natural sultanas). A trick with the food processor with some melted coconut oil and water, a stir and we were ready to roll the mix into balls and cover them with chia seeds and coconut for refrigeration and later tasting!

We then tackled the Oat & Carrot Cookies. I use the word 'tackled' very lightly as the ingredients are all mixed in the pouch ready to use. The pouch contained mixed Organic Oat Flour, Organic Whole Rolled Oats, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Coconut Flour, Carrot Juice Powder and Organic Flaxseeds. We just needed to add melted coconut oil and some water, stirred them through and voilĂ ! Rolled and flattened and in the oven!

Last but not least, we made the Choc-Beet Muffins! We stirred in the mix of Organic Whole Wheat Flour, Organic Sugar Cane, Organic Cacao Powder, Organic Coconut Flour, Baking Powder and Beetroot Juice Powder along with some softened unsalted butter, one egg and some full cream milk and ended up with a silky pinkish mixture. 18 to 20 minutes in the oven and we ended up with bouncy beetroot muffins that I didn't burn!

The result of our baking morning was delicious Cranberry Fig & Seed Balls, crunchy Oat & Carrot Cookies and bouncy Choc-Beet Muffins which a great chocolate and subtle beetroot flavour. The verdict, we love Tracey's make-at-home mixes! It takes next to no time to make some healthy snacks for the kids and parents (great with a cuppa!) and are great for an energy boost for 3:30-itis meltdowns!

The beauty about these packs, you only have to measure a few wet ingredients - the rest is done for you and you don't have to buy and store a heap of ingredients for one recipe. They are especially good for foodies like me who are time poor with their children but still want to give their healthy options. I am pretty happy how we went considering I am prone to stuffing up recipes or burning stuff ha!

Thanks Tracey for letting us try these awesome products and congrats on winning Bronze at the recent 2016 AusMumpreneur Awards in the AusMumpreneur Network Excellence category!
