Is it burning up where you live? It is officially summer here in Austin, and while I am thankful that we haven’t hit 100 degrees yet I’m staying indoors more than I’d like. When temperatures rise my oven is banished from the kitchen. Well, not exactly. I don’t set it outside the house or anything, but it doesn’t get turned on all summer. That means no baking delicious treats like cookies or making homemade granola. Enter Tastymakes.
I had the pleasure of receiving samples to try of Tastymakes snacks and treats. Rarely do I accept products, but when I saw the website, their story, and the incredible flavors of wholesome, raw, vegan products I had to try them! And I’m so glad I did. They really nailed it with their offerings. In the video below I give you a rundown on why I love Tastymakes and I show you my food tossing and catching skills. I’ve got mad skills.

Let me tell you about a few of my favorite Tastymakes! Honestly, I loved all the flavors I tried but these are a few highlights for ya!
Frequently throughout the week I watch my roommate down a bag of potato chips (she is such a bad influence on me!!). If she would only eat these salt & vinegar crackers instead she would fulfill her craving without the oil and salt. With flavors like Garden Herb and Fig & Onion, these savory treats are sure to please every palate. They use apple cider vinegar instead of white, which is known to have a host of healing properties. Pull up a bowl of hummus and start dipping!
The granola is a perfect start to your morning or even as a snack later in the day. I shared the Apple Pie Granola with my friend and her 6 year old and they gave it two thumbs up! I like to have it before I go workout because it gives me carbs, protein, and fat that helps me have all the energy I need to hit the weights hard.
You can also do very cool stuff with the granola like Lacy did by using it for a pie crust! That girl is genius. I threw some in a banana smoothie and it tasted sort of like a banana muffin in a cup! Do it.
But who am I kidding?! My favorite product of all are the BarBites. All the flavors. I’ll take all of them. I’ve got a mad sweet tooth and these knock it out in 2 seconds flat. I’m all for guilt-free, sugar-free treats and you will love this as much as I. I would go for the Chocolate. Just sayin’. Sweetened with dates this treat is not going to send your blood sugar on a rollercoaster ride. That makes them perfect for the kiddos too!
Now, like I explained in the video you can buy these individually packed or you can go with a monthly TastyKit depending on your family size and have them delivered to your door each month (free shipping in the US!!). What? Yes free shipping. And you get a discount for what you would spend on them individually.
Tastymakes was generous enough to give my readers a nice discount! Use the coupon code BLISSFULCHEF to get 15% off your first month of TastyKits or off your first order of individually packed snacks and treats. I promise you won’t regret it!
