Breakfast, lunch, dinner, or dessert, mixing this nutrition-packed ingredient into your daily meals makes you feel ready for the day. If you’re new to this superfood or just looking to get some creative ideas for how you can re-imagine it into your own recipes, read on!

Muesli: A minimally-processed mix of whole grains, nuts, seeds, dried fruits, and spices, muesli was first created at the turn of the 20th century by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner as a healthful dietary supplement for his patients. 


Unlike our oatmeal line, where you just add hot water, muesli is a little different. The simple answer is - Got Milk? However, another great aspect about muesli is the versatility. Yogurt is another optimal choice, eat it hot like oatmeal, or soak it to create your very own overnight oats. The best part is, you can even mix it into a handful of recipes to add some flavor and nutrition.


They have similar ingredients (grains, nuts, seeds and fruits), but the way they came to be is quite different. Think of muesli as a less processed granola. 

  • Not baked. 
  • Less sweet.
  • No added oils.
