Granola has a bad reputation according to many diet standards. It can be high in sugar and oil which means more calories and fat per serving. With a little home cooking or label shopping you can enjoy a wonderful bowl of granola without the guilt. Here at The Grain Market we love granola because of the endless possibilities. You can add nuts, seeds, oats, quinoa, chia seeds, coconut, dried fruits, fresh fruits, cinnamon, vanilla, honey, maple syrup...let your imagination go wild! To avoid the high doses of added sugar use a more natural version like maple syrup, honey, or molasses. Fruits like bananas and dates are super sweet and can be blended up to sweeten any granola mixture. Opt for recipes with less oil and more healthy nuts for healthy omega-3 fats rather than saturated fats. Granola is the perfect topping for yogurt, smoothie bowls, or even ice cream. Have you tried overnight granola? It is one of our favorites!
Be Happy and Healthy,
