I don't have a problem with either types you've mentioned, however, neither compare from a pure health standpoint regardless of how you slice it. Thought this was interesting:
The average granola bar contains the following: Sugar, rolled oats, dextrose, wheat flakes, rice, dried lemon soybeans, fructose, corn syrup, partially hydrogenated peanut and soybean oil - non fat milk, almonds, malt, sorbitol and flavoring.
Notice, sugar is written in 4 different ways, and they have basically taken two healthy oils and hydrogenated them into trans fatty acids - the worst fats.
Don't get me wrong, I will eat either of your suggestions, but if you are eating these on a regular basis, there's no comparison. What dollar amounts are you talking about when you say "a much lower cost"? Can't be overly significant if a box of Clif bars go for 12-14 bucks??
