Many people automatically assume that granola bars are going to be a healthy snack when they see that they include fruits and nuts. No matter what ingredients are included, they’re almost always very high in sugar (which is usually high-fructose corn syrup) and low in nutrients. If you need a snack on the run, you’re much better off having an apple and a handful of almonds. There are healthy granola bars out there, just be sure to read the nutrition label. You should also consider making granola bars at home so you know exactly what is going into them.
