Galaxy Granola

Bear Naked Granola






I love granola, but I feel best eating it when I know what’s in it, and that it’s good for me. For a long time, I ate Bear Naked Granola because I liked their story, their grassroots background, and of course the taste. But I always ate it in moderation because it has 7 grams of fat per 1/4 cup serving. That is a lot! I know, good fats, etc. But it can’t be that good. Also calorie dense.Then I recently discovered Galaxy Granola. They bake their oats in fruit, not fat. Their servings are 115 calories per 1/4 cup and only 1.4 grams of fat. That’s a big difference!

On a blind taste test if I didn’t know the nutritional info, I would probably pick Bear Naked. Their chunks are more filling, and I like their Peak Protein product to bump up the protein. It’s also easier to find in regular grocery stores right now. But knowing the nutritional info, I just bought a new bag of Galaxy Granola. Hard to beat better stats for the same serving size. I recommend the Not Sweet Vanilla, and I just bought Raspberry (has real dried raspberries in it!)

Granola has never had a great reputation because of it’s fat content, so Galaxy’s push at lowering the fat wins in my book.

And by the way, my favorite way to eat granola is with cottage cheese.

Question of the day: Have you tried either? Which gets your vote?
