If you’re looking for an alternative to potato chips, granola chips are a much healthier snacking option. Willamette Valley Granola Chips are crunchy bite size granola snacks made with oats, barley, amaranth, and quinoa.
The Granola Chips are available in Honey Nut, Vanilla Bean, Wild Berry, and Butter Pecan flavors. The Honey Nut and Vanilla Bean flavors were my family’s favorite. I thought the Honey Nut was exceptionally good dipped in peanut butter.
Aside from being a convenient snack option, the Granola Chips are great as an on-the-go breakfast idea. Everyone in my family would much rather sleep an extra 15 minutes than get up to eat breakfast, but it’s not hard to manage to eat a few of these granola chips and some dried fruit or nuts on the way to work or school.
The chips themselves are very sturdy, so you don’t need to worry about them turning into a crumbled mess if they get tossed around in your child’s backpack.
Willamette Valley suggests pairing the granola chips with a homemade parfait. If your kids like yogurt, this seems like it would work well with the Vanilla Bean flavor. Unfortunately, my family isn’t big on yogurt.
A serving of Granola Chips is 10-12 chips. There are 110 calories per serving and each serving contains 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance for whole grains. The chips are also a good source of fiber.
Willamette Valley Granola Chips are available nationally for about $3.99 for each 6.2 oz bag.
