Granola is always on my list of those “deceptive” health foods – because it’s usually laden with sugar and fat – and it ends up being more of a dessert than a health food! But recently there have been a few granola brands out there making actually healthy granola – which I’ve been super impressed with.
One of those companies is Ambrosial Granola: their granola is 100% organic, has all-natural ingredients with no added oils, is low in sugar, and is packed full of seeds, nuts and whole grains – making it higher in fiber than most granolas out there.
Their Venetian Vineyard Omega 3 Plus was my favorite flavor. This granola is a wonderful fusion of walnuts, cashews, dates and plum raisins with tons of flax meal, sesame and sunflower seeds and whole grain oats. It has a warm and earthy flavor with spicy sweet honey and cinnamon undertones. Delicately sweet from high-antioxidant honey, iron-rich molasses, and brown rice syrup, there are no empty calories here!
Each serving of granola (1/2 cup dry) has 230 calories, 7g fat, 38g carbs, 5g fiber, 13-14g sugar, and 6g protein. I like using 1-2 Tbsp and topping my oatmeal with it every morning – it adds a great texture and crunch! It’s also fun to use as a mix-in with other cereals, as a topping for Greek Yogurt, or even on fro-yo or ice cream!
And now, one lucky reader has the opportunity to win a prize pack of Ambrosial Granola’s 3 granola flavors! That means at least 3 huge bags of granola for you to try and enjoy – they will last you forever 🙂
