Granola bars serve as the perfect on-the-go snack. And the options are endless: crunchy, chewy, chocolate, peanut butter, nuts…the list goes on. These yummy bars may seem to be healthy, but many conventional granola bars are loaded with added sugars and preservatives and the worst offender of all: high-fructose corn syrup. Steer clear of the bad guys and instead reach for one of these taste-tested and ingredient-approved healthy granola bars.
