Do you eat granola as breakfast or a midday snack? TBH, we like it anytime. Granola is usually made with rolled oats, nuts, and sometimes dried fruit or other tasty add-ins and can be eaten on its own or as a topper for yogurt or a smoothie bowl.

 

Granola boasts a lot of nutritional benefits and are usually high in protein and fiber, but not all granolas are created equal. Always check the nutritional label to make sure you’re not noshing on an unexpected sugar bomb—some granolas (though none of the ones listed below) have a whopping 18 grams per serving! If you’re heading to Trader Joe’s this week, here are three granolas we LOVE that you might want to try.

 

 

Grainless Granola

Grainless Granola

Best for on-the-go snacking

Total sugars: 8g per ¾ cup

 

Since the nuts, coconut and seeds in this granola are made up of bigger clusters than most granolas (including the others on this list), this Trader Joe’s granola can be eaten as a snack on the go. This nontraditional granola is sweet and salty, and because of the nuts, it’s extra satisfying.

 

 

Toasted Coconut Granola

Toasted Coconut Granola

Most addictive flavor

Total sugars: 10g per 2/3 cup

 

Coconut is definitely the star flavor of this granola, so if you’re a coconut fan, you’ll want to give this one a try. We liked it on its own—the flavor is unique for a granola and makes you want to reach for more—but it would also be good mixed with Greek yogurt or as a topper on oatmeal.

 

 

Pecan Praline Granola

Pecan Praline Granola

Tastiest breakfast

11g per 2/3 cup

 

This one is the highest in sugar on our list, so we recommend adding healthy mix-ins to make this one less of a delicious treat and more of a healthy breakfast choice. We added unsalted pecans right into the bag and gave it a good mix before eating 2/3 cup in a bowl with oat milk. This one would be delicious in oatmeal or used in an apple crisp recipe.
