Method 3

Originating in Switzerland at the beginning of the 20th century, when Dr Bircher-Benner invented it as a part of ensuring that his patients had a healthy diet, muesli has lasted the test of time and has grown into many different variations in the past century. At its most basic, muesli consists of rolled (flaked) oats, grain(s), nuts, seeds, and dried fruit; it differs from granola in that it is less sweet (in North America, granola tends to have rice or maple syrup added to it) and is not roasted (although muesli can be toasted if wished). Eating a healthy breakfast is very important to give you the best possible start into a busy day. If you want to increase your fiber intake and save money at the same time, muesli makes the perfect breakfast food. It's easy to make your own at home, allowing you to skip undesirable additives often found in pre-packaged muesli. Moreover, you can vary the ingredients as much as wished to suit your own preferences. In this article, you'll learn the basics of preparing muesli.
