Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Diabetic diet is bland and this is to put it nicely.  I of course stick to it and try to do the right thing to keep my BG numbers at bay.  Still miss the good old pre-diabetes days.

Then I came across this gem that I received as a part of WalMart Spark Reviewer program. Quaker Granola Bars, Peanut Butter flavor.   The package claims to contain less sugar.  Sure enough, Nutrition Facts panel lists 17 grams of carbs per bar which is roughly one carb.  The breakdown of the 17 grams doesn’t quite add up:  5 grams sugar, 3 grams dietary fiber, and less than 1g glycerin.  This makes up 9 grams, so there’s still about 8 grams of carbs unaccounted for.

It is low in fat but the fat content does add up.  1g of each saturated, polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fat.  0 Trans Fat and 0 Cholesterol, and 100mg sodium.

It tasted great, I love it and highly recommend as a diabetic snack.   Try it.

Will check my BG later on and go from there.  I usually check it once a day in the morning.
