Is eating granola healthy for you?

What’s in your granola recipe? Did you use healthy and clean ingredients? In moderation, granola is good for you especially if they are homemade granola. Granola is high in fiber and iron. Without the dried fruits, and some added nuts into the recipe you will have some nice heart-healthy unsaturated fats in the mix.

Is granola a good breakfast?

Granola is often times recommended as part of a healthy and balanced diet regimen. Just stick to the recommended daily amount since they can be high in sugar. Especially if they are store bought. To use it as part of a well-balanced meal, add about a half cup of your homemade protein granola over some greek yogurt for added protein, calcium and minerals.
