It is a versatile cereal that is consumed in many ways.  It can be soaked in milk, water, or juice and eaten cold.  It can be cooked in boiling water or milk and eaten like traditional oatmeal.  It can be added to yogurt, fruit salads, or used in baking recipes.  We encourage you to freshen up your muesli with fruit from your local farmers.

MUESLI VS GRANOLA

Shopping for muesli or granola? Do you know the difference between muesli and granola?

Muesli and granola are similar and are often confused on store shelves. With common ingredients of grains, fruits, nuts, and seeds, these breakfast choices are actually quite different in origin, nutrition, and health benefits. Muesli is often endearingly called the healthy sibling of granola. Granola is typically baked with sugar and oil, thus higher in fat and calories. Muesli tends to be a bit drier and, thus, is typically eaten as a breakfast cereal. It can be eaten cold with any sort of milk or yogurt or it can be cooked hot like oatmeal.
