(NaturalNews) Sometimes it is the simple things in life that truly impress, and this is precisely the case with Simple Squares, a unique new raw food bar. Created by Kimberly Crupi Dobbins, a certified Holistic Health Counselor, Simple Squares have been designed as a healthy, raw nut and honey confection that is an alternative to junk food sweets.

Dobbins originally came up with the idea for Simple Squares during her time at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition and Columbia University's Teachers College. She was advised not to eat wheat, dairy or refined sugar, and decided to come up with a simple recipe for food bars that was raw, sweetened naturally and nutritious. Thus became Simple Squares.

Simple Squares are free of wheat, dairy, soy and gluten, they contain no refined sugars, and they are completely uncooked and raw. One of the most unique aspects about Simple Squares is the flavors in which they come. Rosemary and sage are the two herbal flavors, and the company also makes a coconut variety.

The squares are composed of a nut blend that includes cashews and almonds, and they are gently sweetened with honey. They also contain flax, vanilla and sea salt, which together form a delicious sweet and salty treat.

The sage and rosemary are really the focal point of flavor in those two varieties, but are not so strong as to overwhelm the bars. In fact, each flavor in the bars is accentuated in its own way, delighting the palate with a savory bouquet of natural, wholesome ingredients. But in my opinion, the rosemary and sage are truly unique and have a delicious flavor unlike any other bar I have tried.

The simple aspect of the bars is embodied in their seven simple ingredients which are never cooked, preserving every nutrient and enzyme that is naturally present in the raw ingredients. And all this in a small but dense bar that makes a great snack or dessert. It is just the right size to satisfy a sweet tooth without tipping the scales or causing a sugar rush.

There are all kinds of bars out there, some simple and some complex. Simple Squares have a simple blend of ingredients that are complex in their respective flavors. I was so impressed by how delicious these bars were when I first tried them that I almost decided to eat only one half and save the other for later... Almost.

Though the bars are currently not certified organic, the Simple Squares company is currently in the process of having its bars organic and kosher certified. And though marketed as a confectionary snack, Simple Squares are rich in protein and nutrients, making them comparable to many of the other food and protein superfood bars available on the market.

In my opinion, Simple Squares are far from simple when it comes to taste, quality and nutrition; they really are a superfood in disguise.
