Testimonials: Physicians & Healthcare Professionals

“Granola Gourmet beautifully demonstrates that those with, and at risk for diabetes, can have their snack bars and control their blood sugar, too! The low glycemic properties of these bars is highly commendable.  Those with diabetes, like everyone else, should be able to love foods that love them back- and Granola Gourmet helps demonstrate that’s possible.”

“As a type 1 diabetic and an Endocrinologist, I have found Granola Gourmet Energy Bars to have a lower Glycemic Impact than other popular bars I’ve eaten. The texture and flavor are unmatched and they truly live up to their name. I’d recommend this product as great snack for adults and children of all ages that want a delicious and healthy food.”

Michael Harris, M.D., Endocrinologist

“As a pediatrician for over thirty years, I have been involved with many of the important issues faced by children in our society. Obesity fueled by poor nutrition is a critical challenge we face with and for our children today.

After evaluating the offerings of Granola Gourmet I find that these energy bars are more like a treat not just a snack. The flavors and textures are great however, the nutritional profile makes them an excellent replacement for the high calorie, high fat snacks being eaten today.

These bars are an important addition to our battle with obesity as they offer an attractive alternative to many of the unhealthy snack foods that add to the burden of obesity in our society. I love them!”

“As a practicing Cardiologist for over 20 years I have first hand experience working to reduce the impact that Diabetes and Obesity has on adults. Among the most difficult issues these patients have is will power. Constant deprivation of tasty and quality snacks often leads to consumption of unhealthy treats that compound the problems that diabetic and overweight patients have.

Granola Gourmet Energy Bars have been a big hit with these patients. The bars are an excellent nutrition source and taste great. Our diabetic and weight loss patients finally have a healthy snack that keeps them from being deprived. Our biggest problem is that they taste so great that our staff keeps devouring them!”

“For over 30 years I have been studying the connection between cancer and nutrition and have found thousands of scientific articles documenting a strong link between the two.  Among other dietary approaches, eating foods that are low in sugar and high in fiber helps to prevent, control or reduce the spread of this terrible disease.

“Granola Gourmet has made the experience of eating a healthy snack easy and delicious.  High in fiber and low in fat, sugar and sodium, this product is high on my list for both preventing and managing cancer.

“As a nurse, I’ve seen a lot of diabetics who feel like finding foods that they can eat is too much of a struggle and therefore, they don’t do as well as they could.  I feel like your product could really make a difference in these people’s lives if they had at least one easy snack they could grab that they knew was healthy.  Thanks Granola Gourmet!”

Liz Reed, R.N., Clarian Medical Center


“Thanks Granola Gourmet.  As a mother, someone who watches what she eats and a dietitian I am always a  skeptic about claims made about food products.  I found Granola Gourmet to be everything they claim to be and more. They say they are good for diabetics, but I see them as also being a good alternative for those with celiac disease or other gluten and wheat allergies, never mind the vegans that are constantly looking for ways to incorporate tasty snacks and not compromise their way of eating.  I am used to eating foods like this and I have to say I love them, but when my daughter says “mom join up for the Granola Club” I figure they must really be good.  Thanks for your commitment to eating healthy.”

Terry Fowler, R.D., Redlands, CA


“Fabulous! Consider me a satisfied customer. I will gladly share my discovery with clients and colleagues. So nice to have a flavorful, nutritious snack that doesn’t taste like “diabetic” food.”
