A popular food and a great addition to a yoghurt to make it a bit more interesting, however, between the fat and the sugar, this crunchy snack is a calorie-dense food. "People think of granola as healthy because they think whole grain, but the problem with granola is that it tends to also have a lot of sugar and it’s often cooked with oil or butter and some kind of fat," says Jennifer Schonborn a dietician. "The energy is a quick kind of false energy from the sugar," she adds.
"The best way to get real sustained energy is to be eating minimally processed, whole natural food that don’t have added sugar."
