Here’s how you can find the healthiest granola bars:

Star Ingredient: Make sure oats are the first ingredient listed on the package. This healthy whole grain is a good source of fiber, which helps keep you full and is good for your cholesterol. If rice or rice flour is listed, make sure it’s brown rice (it’s a whole grain), otherwise it’s refined.

Most Americans get 10 to 15 grams of protein at breakfast, but 30 grams may be the magic number to keep your appetite in check throughout the day and prevent weight gain.
