Damn Good Granola

Granola, typically a “health food” that is actually often a worse breakfast option then a donut (or three). Granola, the hippie’s breakfast, is often highly dependent on added sugars or fats for its flavor. But still people wander up to their favorite fast food joint and think by choosing the yogurt/granola parfait for breakfast, this will justify the double cheeseburger they plan on ordering at this same place for lunch. Packaged granolas at your typically grocery store can be found with worse nutritional stats then a box of Reese’s Puffs cereal. Even the bags with beautiful images of natural grains and pure-sounding names are often no better that the poptarts down the aisle. If you are a victim of the misleading marketing or just falling for the “all granola is good” trend, you are not alone.

There are plenty of recipes for home made granola where you have complete control of the ingredients. Some people are creative and want to put energy into making their own granola at home…I am not one of those people. BUT I have found a few granolas that meet both the nutritional standards, and MORE importantly the taste standards I look for. Both are crunchy, hold up well in yogurt and provide plenty of taste.

Best granolas on the market....that I have found

Galaxy Granola is awesome, and their “Not Too Sweet Vanilla” flavor pairs well with anything. Enjoy Life granola is actually created for all those gluten free fanataics. I could care less that is gluten free. The stuff tastes good, and has the crunchiest texture of any granola I have tried. Even Mrs. FedUp is a fan of this one. The Cinnamon Raisin flavor is good, but pairs best with only certain other flavors (apples/pears/maple syrup), not really berries, my usualy breakfast fruit go-to. Either way, both are good and the FedUp team reccomends them. Oh. and the Galaxy Granola has a sweet logo….apple?Alien? What do you think?

Galaxy Granola, extra points for awesome logo
