Nana’s Nola sent me a few packs of their new granola to try! Of course I gladly accepted because I love granola–but usually will make my own before I go out and buy some.
They came in these little 2 oz. snack/meal packets convenient for travel. I enjoy the taste–not too sweet tasting, and it’s crunchier like a cereal would be.
Each pack is 270 calories, so you could possibly eat this for a snack, or add some milk and fruit and eat it as a meal. If you are watching your calories, this is a little over the recommended 200 calorie snack guideline I give patients.
The fact comes from coconut oil which is the main ingredient. Coconut oil is considered to be one of the slightly healthier fats. The only negative is that the next ingredients are sugar sources: brown rice syrup and agave. However, the entire packet only has 12 grams of sugar which is what I would recommend as the upper limit for this calorie level snack. If you continue to read through the ingredients, you will notice healthy whole grains and no preservatives or unnatural ingredients–always a plus!
Overall, this granola would be a great option for those with food sensitivities because it contains no gluten, no soy, no dairy which tend to be triggers for those who are sensitive. I would recommend this for those who are not watching their weight due to sugar ingredients being at the top of the ingredient list. Nana’s Nola would be a great option for those who are at a normal weight (or need to gain weight), or are athletic.
