Granola Bars are busy person’s go to snack. We’ve all had days where we’ve had to skip a meal. On days like these, granola bars seem to be the best hunger fix because they are yummy, small, and “nutritious.”
No, granola bars are not the worst snack, but they are definitely not the healthiest. Granola bars usually contain unhealthy ingredients such as sugary syrup, and other products often found in candy bars.
To help avoid the more unhealthy granola bars, read the ingredient labels before eating them. According to Beinghealthy.tv, granola bars that are higher in fiber (2 grams or more) provide more energy, and are most likely to make you feel like you are full in a faster amount of time. Also, stay away from granola bars that are high in hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup, and refined sugar. Lastly, avoid granola bars that contain artificial flavors and colors.
