I am always looking for new healthy snacks; there is something so satisfying about a bowl of crunchy and salty chips or crackers. However, it’s tough to find snacks that are not only healthy, but gluten free, too! I first discovered Polvilho Bakery on a visit to FeelFood, and I couldn’t get enough! The puffs are NOBREAD approved and made with cassava flour; a Brazilian staple that Polvilho creator, Daniela, is introducing to the American snack scene! The puffs are super light and airy and almost dissolve in your mouth! They are also all natural and low in calories, and come in plain, parmesan, flax seed & coconut oil, and cacao flavors. The parmesan flavor reminds me of a grown-up, healthy Cheeto! I also love the flax and coconut flavor; the hint of coconut is so delicious and perfectly savory. The cacao puffs might become my new late night NOBREAD snack, as they remind me of the cocopuff cereal I used to eat when I was a kid! The puffs are made in Brooklyn and you can order them online (link below) and have them shipped anywhere in the US. You can also find them at FeelFood and in several health food stores on the Upper East Side. Check them out and happy NOBREAD snacking!
