Granola: A Really Sweet Dessert!

Granola started out as an unsweetened breakfast alternative.

Are you part of the majority of Americans who believe a mixture of oats, sugar, vanilla flavor, and maybe a few nuts and raisins is a healthy food? If so,  think again! Most commercial granolas tend to have enough sugar that they rival an ordinary slice of chocolate cake or a cup of ice cream. Read a fascinating history of granola on the New York Times website.

PositiveTip: Make your own granola, but beware of putting too much sugar, honey, maple syrup and other sweeteners in it.
