If you find yourself hungry in the Hawaiian Isles, check out La Tour Bakehouse, an artisan bakery located in Honolulu’s historic Chinatown.
While owner Thanh Lam and his crew churn out some amazing French bread, they have also expanded into packaged snacks, including a line of Whole Grain Puffs.
I recently had a chance to sample the honey glazed sunflower, flax, and sesame flavor puffs, which are available at Oahu farmer’s markets and retail outlets like Longs, Foodland, and Safeway.
These whole grain puffs pack a flavor punch! They’re light and crunchy, and slightly sweet. The texture is similar to a puffed cereal, but the seeds and grains add a heartier taste.
A one ounce serving has 120 calories, 6 grams fat and 3 grams dietary fiber. These are a great, high fiber addition to any afternoon snack, whether you can be at the beach or not!
