TIP OF THE DAY: What Makes The Best Granola Cereal

Many Americans start the day with a bowl of granola or a yogurt-granola combination, or carry bags of granola for a healthy snack on-the-go.

With all the brands on the grocer’s shelf, what constitutes the best granola cereal?

The best granola is a healthy granola. As with all foods, choose a brand that starts with the highest-quality natural ingredients, and scan the nutrition label for:

  • Fiber. Here’s your opportunity to start the day with fiber-rich whole grains. Breakfast granola should offer at least 25 grams of whole grains per serving, including 3 grams of fiber. The usual whole grain in granola is oats. The government recommends 48 grams of whole grains daily: See a list of whole grains.
  • Nutrition. Look at the nutrition label for calcium, magnesium and vitamin E. These nutrients will fuel you throughout the day.
  • Natural Sweeteners. Look for a naturally sweetened whole grain granola, which means agave, honey, maple syrup or molasses rather than refined sugar, corn syrup or HFCS.

    Make Your Own Granola

    Many pre-made granolas have unnecessary added ingredients, such as preservatives, and too much added sugar. Making a healthier granola at home is easy and cost effective: Most ingredients can be bought for significantly less in the bulk foods aisle of your grocery store. If you want to limit your gluten intake, you can find gluten-free oats. You can even give containers of your special blend as house gifts, special treats and stocking stuffers.

  • Use natural sweeteners like agave or honey.
  • Add your favorite type of nut, seed and dried fruit.
  • Toss in a handful of flax seeds for added fiber.
