Here at Ready to Thrive!, we love topping our smoothies and smoothie bowls with an absolutely delicious granola! But did you know that not all granola options are actually good for you? A lot of brands you can find in your local grocery store are filled with added sugars and tons of preservatives, so it’s important to read your labels and make sure you’re buying a granola that fits into your healthy lifestyle. Here are some great options for a healthy granola that you’ll love!
This granola is made up entirely of ingredients you’ll recognize, sweetened only with a hint of maple syrup, and only has 4g of sugar. Not to mention, it’s also organic, grain free, and totally delicious!
This granola has an impressive nutrition label, although it does contain cane sugar as one of its ingredients. With that said, it still only has 4g of sugar per serving, 120 calories, and 2.5g of fat. Not too shabby!
This is another granola made from organic ingredients, including easy-to-digest sprouted oats. The sugar content is higher (6g of sugar per serving), but the overall nutritional profile is impressive. We wouldn’t feel guilty snacking on this granola!If you have the time, making your own granola is always a great way to go. You can make it grain-free, sugar-free, paleo, or anything else based on what you prefer your diet to be! Having control about what goes into your own recipe ensures that you’re only getting the nutrients you want. Here is a sugar-free recipe that we love!
