I've said before that the hardest part of my trying to get fit and healthy is the snacking. Fortunately today I have the opportunity to introduce you to another of my new found edible friends: Beanitos Chips. Beanitos are Corn Free, Gluten Free, High Fiber, and have complete 6g Protein per single serve bag! “PurposeFULL Snacking for Human Beans” [Love that. :)] I was sent a sample assortment of 4 Beanitos varieties including Beanitos Pinto Bean & Flax Chips, Beanitos Cheddar Cheese Pinto Bean & Flax Chips, Beanitos Black Bean Chips, and Beanitos Chipotle BBQ Black Bean Chips. The first bag I tried was Chipotle BBQ Black Bean Chips. Those come with a bit of a kick! I'm not someone who likes spicy, and I did like the chips, but I mixed my bag with a bag of regular Black Bean Chips to even out the kick. It was fantastically tasty! A combo I would recommend to any other heartburn prone snack lovers out there. Alone the regular Black Bean Chips are slightly salty. A couple days later I tried the Cheddar Cheese Pinto Bean & Flax Chips. I didn't taste a strong Cheddar Cheese flavor, and felt like these chips were a little bland. This morning I had the regular Pinto Bean & Flax Chips as an early afternoon snack. I didn't have high hopes for this bag after the Cheddar Cheese chips, but I was pleasantly surprised. The regular Pinto Bean & Flax Chips are salty and satisfying!
I tried four flavours:
Beanitos Black Bean Chips in Chipotle BBQ: Hot and spicy and taste very similar to barbecue chips. These ones were John’s favourite.
Beanitos Black Bean Chips: Delicious, crispy with just the right amount of salt. More of the black bean flavour comes through with this variety.
Beanitos Pinto Bean & Flax Chips: Crispy and have more of cracker taste to me. Lightly salted and yummy dipped in salsa.
Beanitos Pinto Bean & Flax Chips in Cheddar Cheese: Spicy and cheesy and oh so addicting.
These chips are corn free, gluten free, full of fiber, have 4 grams of protein per serving, and have omega 3 in them. Also, they have a low glycemic index. One ounce of these chips have 140 calories and 7 grams of fat which is similar to other chips. I am impressed by the fiber and protein content though. These chips are great and I would recommend them to anyone!
