A Better Breakfast.
Muesli is a traditional European breakfast cereal with whole grains, nuts, fruits, and seeds. Muesli has become a staple for it’s endless versatility – you can eat it like classic cereal with milk or water, eat it hot like oatmeal with hot water, bake with it in your favorite recipes, and even ground up as an oat flour base for breads and other GUUDies.
Muesli was originally created in the late 1800s by Dr. Maximillian Bircher-Benner in Switzerland. His proposition was that his "Muesli" was the ideal combination of whole foods the body needs for optimal health including digestion and weight management. He tested various diets and saw the most improvement from grains, nuts, fruits and veggies that were "nourished by the sun". Today it's eaten primarily for breakfast throughout the world but Dr. Bircher-Benner had his patients eating it three times a day originally!
Are Muesli and Granola the Same?
Muesli and granola are not the same. Let's clear that right up!
But they are often confused because they are in the cereal aisle and usually in pouches (maybe that's it?) They are actually quite different in nutrition and health benefits and guess which is GUUDER?
The basic difference between granola and muesli:
Granola is baked with various sugars and oils and often includes flavorings, which is what makes granola sweet and clumpy. Nutritionally, granola is closer to conventional sugar cereals than it is to muesli.
Muesli has NO sugar added or very low sugar and is not baked with oils or flavorings. All the delicious flavors are from plant-based combinations of fruits, nuts, and seeds.
AND it's not boring because it's not the same every day. Unlike anything else in the cereal aisle, Muesli can be enjoyed Cold, Hot, as easy Overnight Oats or made into quick cookies, bars, energy bites – we even have a recipe for Muesli pizza in our recipe section.
