Granola bars are easy, fast snacks that we can bring on the go to school, sports, hiking, and friends houses. And, they are considered a healthy snack, which they CAN be if the right ingredients are put in them. A lot of the time though, they are a candy bar with a more appealing label.
Those kinds of granola bars are the ones that you definitely want to stay away from. They are filled with chemicals, refined sugars, and high fructose corn syrup! Not something that you want to be eating as a healthy snack, that we are using for energy.
Luckily, there are companies out there who make some really good ones, and ones that are better than others.
Here are a list of ones that are NOT as good to eat:
- Nature Valley
- Fiber One
- Power Bars
Here are some BETTER ones:
- Soy Joy
- Cascadian Farms
- Kind bars
- Raw Revolution
Kind bars are my absolute favorite bars! I usually stick with the raw fruit and nuts ones, and not the chocolate ones, but hey, if you want chocolate eat it! They are sweetened with honey, and contain no preservatives are chemical crap!
What are your favorite bars?
