fruit not fat & galaxy granola

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 🙂

Ingredients: Whole Rolled Oats, Apples, Organic Agave Nectar, Barley Flakes, Spelt Flakes, Crisp Rice, Oat Flour, Vanilla Extract, Oat Bran, Vitamin E.

Nutrition: (Per 1/4 cup) 120 cal, 2.2 g fat, 4 g fiber, 4 g protein

    I still haven’t settled on a granola that I’m 100% satisfied with, so thank you for this thorough review. I like the nutritional stats on this stuff, so I’ll check out their site.

  3. It has been hard for me to find a granola that I really like. There are always ingridients in it that I’m not okay with or the clumps are too big:)

    Thanks for the review. I will have to check out their website.

  4. I’m totally going to buy this, i’m obsessed with granola.

  5. I never buy granola because of the sugar content, thank you for posting this! If I can find some, this will definitely be my choice in granola 🙂
