We're NUTS about this snack we find so very a-peeling! It's cakey. It's soft. It's sweet. It's nutty. It's the Nush Banana Nut Cake! Pairing bananas and nuts is an indisputable flavor match. Seen everywhere from traditional cakes, breads, and cookies, to even coffee creamers, sodas, and toothpaste, it just makes sense for Nush to come out with a flavor of its own. In fact, Nush has revamped its Banana Nut recipe with the release of four new flavors, also available at Barefoot Provisions! At Barefoot Provisions, we believe you CAN have your cake and eat it too, especially with Nush's Banana Nut Cake!
For the true, true stories behind this incredible foodstuff, read on.
It's BANANAS how good this cake is! I especially adore the light and moist texture this snack has. It's a welcome treat as an afternoon pick me up, or even as a late morning snack after yoga on the weekends. Nush's claim to fame is its low sugar and net carb counts. This Banana Nut Cake has just 1 gram of sugar and 2 grams of net carbs. You'll feel satiated all day long with this banana, walnut, organic coconut oil and flax combination. Nush is here to stop the sugar-and-carb roller coaster—because roller coasters are meant for amusement parks, not your diet! Nush is a crossover between a cake and a bar. So it's a bake! Or, is it a car? We support whatever word you choose to describe it, as long as you love 'em just as much as we do!
Getting Wrapped up in the Facts
"it's breakfast on the go, it's a great little snack, it's maybe even dessert, but it's not sugar."
HERE ARE SOME OF THE AMAZING INGREDIENTS IN THE NUSH BANANA NUT CAKE
Flax seeds got it going on. Argued as one of the most powerful plant foods on the planet, flax seeds may reduce your risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, and diabetes. Loaded with Omega-3 essential fatty acids, better known as the good kind of fat, you'll feel fuller, longer. The icing on the cake (no pun intended)? Flax seeds are full of fiber, both soluble and insoluble. That makes us want to go… enjoy another cake!
ORGANIC COCONUT OIL
Coconut oil is on-trend. Seen everywhere from body butters to coffee creamers, coconut oil is the latest and greatest superfood. Coconut oil helps raise the good HDL cholesterol in your blood, which reduces your risk for heart disease.
Walnuts are outrageously awesome nuts, and even better when you get to enjoy them in cake! Walnuts, known for their brain function and memory boosting properties, are excellent for heart health and weight control. Add in some antioxidants and you have your next bulk-food buy!
For the longest time, bananas were known to prevent cramps after long workouts. They were also known as the go-to prank in school hallways, creating a slip and slide for that one teacher who just had it coming for 'em. Today, bananas are known for their potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. Bananas help maintain blood sugar levels, which keep you feeling full and focused all day long. Their high iron content also help with anemia. We love to enjoy a banana a day, whether that is in our smoothie, on the go, or in a Nush Cake!

About NUSH, in their own words
"Muffy Mead-Ferro knew her whole family would be healthier if they ate less sugar and fewer carbs. But as the primary grocery shopper, it was hard to find prepared foods that weren't full of sugar and carbs. And let's face it, we need prepared foods to live this nutty life we live. We're on the run sometimes! Especially in the morning, right? So she started baking. Tasting. Researching. And baking some more. Eventually what came out of the oven was a new company: nush."
Muffy and her partner Dave have paved the way for all of us to enjoy just a little more cake (or maybe a lot—it's damn good!).
