Being a busy mom to 3 boys, I love recipes that don’t take much time! These low carb and grain free granola bars are just that!

I used to buy my boys Fiber 1 granola bars, thinking they were a “healthier” option. One day, I decided to look at the ingredients list…and I was blown away.

I like to use the app Fooducate to see how a certain food rates. Fiber 1 is rated at a C-. Here’s just some of the ingredients:

  • Semisweet chocolate chips (sugar, chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, soy lecithin, natural flavor)
  • corn syrup
  • sugar
  • canola and palm kernel oil
  • high maltose corn syrup
  • soy lecithin
  • fructose

What is marketed as a “healthier” alternative is actually not healthy at all!

Now, I make my own granola bars! With this recipe, you just throw everything in your food processor and then put it into a pan to bake. It’s simple and you can pronounce and feel good about every single ingredient. These are also grain free, gluten free, refined sugar free, dairy free, and Paleo.
