Default Special K Low Fat Granola

Hey all, I bought a box of this to snack on while I am at work. I just want your opinions of it is a good carb source or not? I know oatmeal would be better, but can't snack on that at work!

Can you tell us the calories per bar, and macro breakdown?

Usually low-fat items have a lot of sugar unless they are really low cal.

I'm sure it's not the worst thing to snack on.

Calories in Kellogg's Special K Low Fat Granola and Nutrition Facts

Sorry, thought Amazon had the nutrition label. Looks decent to me though.

It doesn't look too bad at all. Sugar is under control.

looks pretty good, you could also try trail mix or beef jerky too if you're looking for some ideas (both can be prepared at home if you're into that entire quality/thriftiness thing).

Those do look pretty good. Less sat. fat and more protein than the fiber one bars that I snack on. Walnuts, Pecans, in addition to what Mombow said make great snacks too.
