Barùkas Nuts: Supernuts of the Savanna: Great Source of Protein and Fiber
Barùkas Nuts, anyone!?
I’m always on the lookout for snack options, and I get especially excited about high protein ones because I’m always looking for an afternoon pick me up snack. I recently discovered Barùkas nuts and I’m thrilled to have partnered with this brand to share this exciting product with you!
Good for You.
The NEW Barùkas nuts from Brazil boast an incomparable nutrition profile with the highest protein, fiber and antioxidant power and lowest calories of any nut on the market, while also leaving the smallest environmental footprint!
As you can see, these nuts are about the same size as an almond. The taste is a bit hard to describe. I feel like it’s a mix between a pine nut and a peanut with an almost popcorn-ish flavor to them. I don’t really know how else to describe them, except for the fact that they are kind of addicting!
We’ve been placing them out in our afternoon fruit trays. Sometimes I’ll add in some cheese as well, but with these hot summer afternoons, a few berries along with Barùkas seem like a perfect snack.
Good for the Planet.
Along with the micronutrients and the antioxidants, I also LOVE the commitment that this brand has to the environment. With a mission to stop deforestation in Brazil, the brand is committed to planting a new Baruzeiro tree in Brazil for every five pounds of Barùkas nuts sold. In addition to reforesting vast areas of the Amazonian savanna, the brand supports indigenous communities with fair trade and sustainable methods.
Where to purchase Barùkas Nuts
I was excited to find out that you can purchase Barùkas nuts on Amazon, but they are also available at a variety of natural retailers nationwide, as well as at barukas.com. I love that they come in a resealable bag, that makes it really easy to grab a handful when you need that little snack and protein boost.
We take snack time pretty seriously around here, so we are always on the lookout for new snack ideas. Here’s a fun little snack tip that my family came up with. We are a bit obsessed. One my my kids decided to put the Barùkas nuts inside raspberries (see below) and I have to tell you, it’s the most amazing little flavor sensation. So, now it’s a snack time favorite around here. Our golden raspberries are almost ripe, so we can’t wait to try it with them.
