Nature Valley granola bars
Granola bars are one of the most versatile snacks I can think of—nutritious, fuss-free and perfect for any time of the day, be it a quick breakfast, pre-workout boost, or midday pick-me-up. I have found Nature Valley granola bars to be my favourite, as they are delicious and full of goodness, containing whole grain oats, alongside fibre and protein—an easy way to get my nutrients in without any preservatives and artificial additives.
These Nature Valley granola bars also come in different flavours, including Oats’ N Honey, Peanut Butter, and Oats’ N Dark Chocolate, adding variation to the usual monotonous granola bar. You can enjoy all three flavours in their Variety Pack ($5.85). Otherwise, the brand offers single flavour packs ($5.85) as well.
The versatility of these bars is extended to the infinite ways you can enjoy them, on top of having them on their own. With that, we’ve curated a list of 4 ways you can use Nature Valley granola bars to atas-ify snacktime.
1. Top your fruit and yoghurt bowl
Fruit and yoghurt are the yin and yang of sweet and sour, and make a classic combination when served in a yoghurt bowl.
In a bid for a more balanced meal, we’ve decided to pair our yoghurt bowl with Nature Valley’s Oats ‘N Dark Chocolate granola bar, which adds a good dose of complex carbs. We also added sliced bananas and strawberries, though you’re free to add any other fruit or topping as you please.
The dark chocolate granola brings a rich, malty sweetness—a contrast to the tart strawberries and tangy yoghurt.. Meanwhile, the granola bar already provides an element of crunch to the yoghurt bowl.
2. Blend into your smoothies
