Happy Sunday! I hope you are having a great weekend! Today I have a delicious treat to share with you, but first, did you know that April is Soy Foods month?

The Soyfoods Association of North America (SANA) provides information about the health benefits and nutritional advantages of soy. SANA offers fun recipes and convenient ways to incorporate soy into meals for everyone – from athletes to families. SANA is dedicated to spreading the word about soy, especially during National Soyfoods Month in April!

Soy products have quite a few health benefits including:

  • Heart health. A good source of plant protein, soy is one of only a few food components that reduces blood cholesterol.
  • Weight management. Soy can help people achieve lower body weight and may help to redistribute unhealthy fat deposits away from the body core.
  • Wholesome nutrition. Eating more soyfoods in place of animal-based protein sources lowers saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories in the diet, while increasing important nutrients like dietary fiber, folate, iron, and other minerals.

On top of those amazing health benefits, they can also be made into delicious foods including SoyJoy Bars

and Honey Nuts

I was fortunate enough to receive both of these delicious products in the mail to sample! I have had the SoyJoy bars in the past and absolutely loved the flavor and texture of them! They are sweet, but not over kill and have a soft chewy texture. The Honey Nutz were new to me, but right away they sounded delicious! Honey and Nuts? YES PLEASE! I first tried them out on top of some cinnamon pumpkin, sliced banana and soy nutz. I loved them! They added a nice crunch to my snack plus a slight hint of sweetness AND 8g of protein!

After trying them, I knew they would work perfectly in a bar recipe I had been planning! They added a nice sweetness and crunch! Plus, honey works so perfectly with oats, peanut butter and chocolate, wouldn’t you agree? ?
