As a rule, I’m not a huge fan of granola. Too crunchy, and usually way too much sugar for my oh-so-delicate system. But something made me want to give this Bear Naked Peak Protein a try.
Guys, this stuff is SO good. If you are the type of person who prefers a lower-sugar snack, this is for you.
I don’t know if 5 grams of protein per ¼ cup serving qualifies for the moniker “Peak Protein”, but 5 grams is better than nothing, right? Because I know y’all will stick with the ¼-cup serving. I actually had to measure it out and put it in a baggie to bring it to work. You know me; I just knew if I brought the whole bag I would EAT THE WHOLE BAG. As it was, I brought it for an afternoon snack, but it didn’t make it past 10:30 am.
There is some refined sugar in this granola, but from what I could see from the ingredients list, it is contained within the dried cranberries. Which I picked out of mine and dutifully threw away. After I tried just one. (Yum!)
