HEALTH HACKS | (Sometimes) Healthy Granola Bars

Granola bars are generally known as a healthy diet's best friend--they're quick, easy and nutritious! But alas, do not mistake this as a blanket statement for all granola bars. While all self-advertise as healthy sustenance, many actually consist of more sugar than a delectable dessert and have little fiber content! The granola bar shopping aisle can be a little intimidating at first glance, however you can easily differentiate the good options from the bad options with these checkpoints in mind: low sugar content (preferably less than eight grams of sugar), good source of fiber and protein, and an ingredients list of less than ten items. To make your life a little easier, check out these five granola bars below that are actually nutritious and delicious.
