How Sweet It Is?

Dan Chandler

We get a lot of questions here at our Crazy Monkey Bakery. One question we get asked about every day is, "How much sugar is in your granola?" Well, how much sugar do you think?

How much sugar is in a serving of Coca Cola? 29 grams

How much sugar is in a Snickers? 57 grams

The American Heart Association(AHA) recommends that men eat no more than 9 teaspoons of sugar in a day and that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons according to Medical News Today.

How many grams of sugar in a teaspoon? 4 grams

Both popular snack items we mentioned above exceed the daily recommendation for women and according to our calculations, men would go over their suggested limit if they enjoyed both items in the same day! 

So back to the question we get asked so much. How much sugar is in a serving of Crazy Monkey Baking Granola? It depends on the flavor. 

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crumble and Dark Chocolate Chip Granola Cookie Crunch, like many of our flavors, have 8 grams of sugar or 2 teaspoons per serving. Our Cinnamon Pecan granola and Pumpkin Seed & Spice granola contain 6 grams of sugar or 1.5 teaspoons per serving.

So, when choosing an afternoon or evening snack, consider all of our granola is a better option than a candy bar or a soda!
