Fruity Chocolate Granola Bars
Fruity Chocolate Granola Bars

 

By Colleen Walsh Fong

 

January 20th is National Granola Day. Granola is made of rolled oats, nuts, and honey and is baked until it’s crisp. It’s popular as a snack, snack bar, cereal, and topping. Granola comes in all sorts of flavors, and people and food companies add lots of different ingredients to it.

 

It’s widely thought of as a healthy food product, but that isn’t always so. If you’re looking for a healthy, store-bought granola, be sure to read the labels! They will tell you how many calories a given granola product contains, how much fat is in it, and what chemicals or preservatives it contains. It only stands to reason that chocolate chips in a granola bar, or ones containing high fructose corn syrup may come with unwanted calories and ingredients.

 

We make a pretty mean granola bar here at Easy Weekly Meals. And while it isn’t strictly healthy, as it’s got a little brown sugar and chocolate, it’s delicious! If you’d like to try your hand at making your own fresh granola bars just complete a contact form to receive our newsletter, and we’ll send you our recipe. This month’s newsletter contains a sneak peak at one of the key recipes in our new A-La-Carte Recipe Ensembles, available to newsletter recipients only.

 

Enjoy National Granola Day, and enjoy your sneak peak!
