Granola is a popular breakfast food. It is also be eaten as a snack. It has ability to :

  3. Regulate digestion
  4. Prevent anemia
  5. Improve heart health

Granola is usually made from oats and puffed rice. Granola is enriched in Calcium, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Niacin, Iron, Thiamin, Sodium, Potassium and dietary fibers. Dietary fiber in granola add bulk and weight to bowel movement and help to prevent constipation.

It keeps you fuller for a longer period of time as it is rich in complex carbohydrates and fiber.

Granola is also harmful for your health if you are consuming it in excess amount. My recommendation is to stop buying processed granola as they are high in fat and sugar intake. Try to make granola at home with ingredients you like. Here is the recipe of homemade granola:
