Granola was invented in the US and was primarily consumed by backpackers as a convenient, energy-dense snack. Now, everyone seems to enjoy some form of granola!
The building blocks of granola are typically oats, which are a whole grain and a source of fiber and plant-based proteins. Whole grains tend to keep you feeling full longer than other grains, so eating granola for breakfast could keep you going until lunch time!
