Nature Valley Oats & Hazelnuts (Crunchy & More)

These Nature Valley granola bars have been around for a while but I've never tried the "Crunchy & More" versions. There are two varieties: Oats & Berries and Oats & Hazelnuts. There was no contest between those two for which one I wanted to try - Hazelnuts is always going to be the clear winner!

I often buy the Nature Valley Oats & Honey bars for my husband and he is more of a fan of them than I am. I find them quite hard in texture due to the densely packed oats, I generally prefer cereal bars that are chewy. However I do love hazelnuts so I willingly gave these Oats & Hazelnuts a try.

Each box has five individually wrapped portions and there are two bars in a pack.

These "granola" bars are packed full of wholegrain oats and hazelnut pieces. The added nuts give these bars an extra crunchy texture and a deliciously indulgent flavour.

They have a lot more calories than the cereal bars I usually feature but they do have the benefit of being lactose free and suitable for vegetarians. Have you tried the Nature Valley Oats & Hazelnut? Let me know what you thought of them by leaving a comment below.

  1. A new one to me! These look and sound very nice, love hazelnuts. Been a little while since I had their granola bars, they may find their way into the shopping basket next time I'm in.

    1. Thanks! It was the first time I had ever seen them too. If you love hazelnuts then I think you will really enjoy these bars :)
