After spending the last 6+ months on prednisone, I have become more serious about eating healthier.  The last year has been a whirlwind for me in the terms of my health. After dealing with lupus and a kidney cancer diagnosis in November of 2019, I have finally realized how extremely vital it is that I really get a hold on of the things that I am putting inside my body.  With that said, I struggle with this A LOT.

As a chronic illness warrior, it is really important that I find ways to ease my meal planning and meal prepping.  I don’t always have a ton of energy to spend planning a healthy meal for my family.  I knew that I needed to find ways to better manage my time and energy when it came to creating healthy meals and snacks for me and my family.

Meal prepping is one of the best things to do when you suffer from a chronic illness.  I try to find a slow day that I can dedicate to planning meals out for the week.  I usually choose to do this on Saturday since the kids do not have school going on and I do not have a lot of work going on.  If you can plan and prep the hardest parts of your meals on one day, the rest of the week can breeze on by.

Even if I am able to make healthy choices with my meals, I find myself slacking in the snack department LOL.  I constantly feel like I need to munch on something.  The only problem?  I usually reach for something crunchy like potato chips because they are quick and easy to consume.

Square Root Nutnola

So you can imagine how excited I was to be approached by Square Root about their Nutnola line of products.  The company was born when the founder, Ellie, was diagnosed with Celiac disease.  She wanted great tasting granola but found it was hard to find ones that fit her gluten-free / grain-free diet and Square Root was born.  To have someone create a snack that was not only delicious but good for you is like a dream come true to a chronic illness warrior.

Since its inception, Square Root has released a couple of tantalizing flavors in their Nutnola snack mixes and in their Nutnola butter.

Square Root’s Maple Cinnamon Nutnola Review

square root nutnola review

Square Root states the Maple Cinnamon flavored nutnola is what started it all.  This delicious mix contains delicate hints of maple and cinnamon.  I don’t know about you, but maple & cinnamon are one of my favorite flavor combinations.  There is just something that is so warm and inviting about maple and cinnamon.  This makes this specific flavor of nutnola a perfect topping for yogurt or oatmeal.

I personally love this flavor and found it an amazing topping for oatmeal drizzled with honey.   With the temperatures starting to cool down here in Ohio, I believe that having a bowl of warm oatmeal with this crunchy and sweet nutnola mix pairs extremely well on these cold mornings.

I also seem to find myself snacking on these right out of the bag LOL.  They seriously are a great and quick snack that can help you stave off hunger since they are packed with protein!  The best part of Square Root’s Maple Cinnamon Nutnola mix is the fact it is Certified Gluten Free, grain free, paleo, dairy free, vegan, refined sugar free, and non-gmo!  Yes, it may be hard to believe that something that tastes so delicious can meet all these special diet requirements, but I am here to tell you it’s true.

You also won’t find any artificial ingredients in this nutnola which helps to make it an easy choice when it comes to looking for granola alternatives.  You can see how hearty this mix is and with the protein, it is perfect to jumpstart your mornings!

Square Root’s Lemon Blueberry Nutnola Review

square root nutnola review

Square Root’s Lemon Blueberry nutnola is a refreshing and light mix of all things heavenly.  Out of the 3 flavors that I tried, this one was just so unique in its airy and citrusy flavors that it has won my heart.  I enjoyed it over a homemade yogurt parfait that was made with blueberries, grapes, and cranberries.  I can’t really explain the unique flavors of this delicate nutnola, but that it’s a sweet and fresh flavor addition to anything you add it to.

If you are looking for a refreshing way to spruce up your yogurt or even a salad, Square Root’s Lemon Blueberry nutnola would make a perfect choice.  This is also a great choice to snack on straight out of the bag and believe me, I have many times LOL.

This flavor of Square Root nutnola is also Certified Gluten Free, grain free, paleo, dairy free, vegan, refined sugar free, and non-gmo.

Square Root’s Chocolate Cherry Chia Nutnola Review

square root nutnola review

The Chocolate Cherry Chia nutnola is ridiculously delicious.  I almost feel like there is no way this nutnola blend can be healthy for me LOL.  Square Root’s Chocolate Cherry Chia nutnola is made with dairy-free chocolate and dried cherries.  Does it get any better than that?!?

If you are craving a sweet snack that is actually good for you, this blend would be my top choice for you.  Again, this nutnola makes a great protein-packed choice when it comes to quick and easy snacking.  This would be a great choice as a yogurt topping as well, but I decided to top ice cream with it! And…WOW!

It is seriously amazing on ice cream, so much so that I forgot to take a picture before I ate it LOL.  While I am definitely trying to only eat ice cream in moderation, I do feel better knowing that I have the ability to pack a ton of protein into my sweet treat without sacrificing flavor.

Square Root’s Chocolate Chia Nutnola Butter Review

square root nutnola review

Okay, so let me first start and say that I am automatically down to try any sort of butter.  Usually, the ones I do try aren’t the healthiest of choices LOL.  So, you can imagine my curiosity when it came to Square Root’s nutnola butter.  Square Root’s chocolate chia nutnola butter is made from their Chocolate Cherry Chia nutnola!  How they can do this is beyond me, but it’s magical!
I tried Square Root’s Chocolate Chia Nutnola Butter on toast and it was delicious and amazing.  I am so pleased to have a quick and easy way to incorporate this healthy butter into my everyday life.  It takes a few seconds to transform a boring and ordinary piece of toast into a sweet and fulfilling snack that is good for you!  To be able to have dairy-free chocolate for breakfast is nothing short of amazing.

This butter has the ability to transform so many snacks that you may eat daily.  Toast is just one of the many ways that you can add protein into your diet each day.  This butter would be amazing with fresh fruit, in your smoothie or yogurt, and even on ice cream!

Square Root’s Maple Cinnamon Nutnola Butter Review

square root nutnola review

After trying all of Square Root’s Nutnola products above, it was hard to decide on which was my favorite.  They all are really tasty and convenient in terms of use, but I think that my favorite has to be their Maple Cinnamon Nutnola Butter.  I really do love the warm and comforting taste of maple and cinnamon and this butter satisfies those cravings but with a super smooth presentation.

I also tried this particular nutnola butter on toast and it has quickly become one of our household’s favorite snacks.  There is just something about cinnamon and maple that makes my heart sing, especially in the fall and winter.  If you are trying to decide between the two flavors, I would definitely choose the maple cinnamon butter because there are so many ways you can use this flavor combination each day.
