I have some exciting granola news for you, and I know you all love granola. How can you not? It is crunchy and sweet, the perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert and it is a healthy treat that we can all feel good about eating. But we also know that all granola is not created equally. A lot of it is full of added sugars, unnecessary fats and loads of ingredients that we don’t need.
Galaxy Granola has some new products that even the pickiest of nutritious eaters can feel good about eating and even more importantly enjoy eating. They sent me some samples to try and I started with the Not Sweet Vanilla – it is sweetened with agave and only has 4 g of sugar/serving. Considering that apples are the second ingredient, that is the best sugar stat on cereal that I’ve seen in a long time. But realistically it all comes down to the taste and I am here to let you know that this was some of the best granola I’ve had in a while. It had the perfect vanilla flavor without being overly sweet but still felt like a treat. I had mine straight out of the bag and with some unsweetened almond milk – Oh and did I mention that they donate 1% of sales to protect the environment? Eat up
