Celebrate Granola Bar… it’s more than just a candy


Compressed into a snack bar that gets us the oomph to keep going, the healthy granola bar ought to be honoured! A saviour for the sporty and helpful during the hectic day, Stanley Mason is to be credited for these power foods! The National Granola Bar Day on January 21 celebrates these rolled oats of proteins and useful fibres.

Made with wholesome ingredients that provide energy- what’s not to love about these health-friendly foods? They can make a great start to your day and the perfect way to live gluten-free. Apart from that, they are easy to make your own version of the food! Who wouldn’t love to crumble the crunchy granola over oatmeal or Greek yoghurt for breakfast?

You can start with an existing recipe to understand it and then prepare your version of it. Go outlandish by trying to whip up a Coconut Almond Granola Bar, a Coffee Granola Bar, Pumpkin Granola Bar or minty and chewy Peppermint Hot Chocolate Granola Bars. Make sure these portable snack time staples are not merely candy bars in disguise.

Look out for fibre and protein in them rather than mere truckloads of sugar. When you are preparing them, choose from healthier options like chia seeds, flax seeds, protein powder and hemp seeds to pack a powerful nutritional crunch to them. So win over the National Granola Bar Day as you concoct your own tantalising granola that hits the perfect spot and wins over just everybody’s taste-buds!
