Muesli (pronounced Mews-li) is a fiberand protein-rich breakfast and brunch option based on raw, rolled oats and other diverse breakfast ingredients. 2016-09-27 | By: Snap Fitness. Some people confuse muesli with granola, but there are some distinct differences. Muesli is healthier, contains fewer calories and has less sugar.

There are also a few versions, including gluten-free, toasted, untoasted and fresh Muesli, which is. Muesli is essentially a versatile cereal comprising of oats and whole grains along with other ingredients such as nuts, seeds, dried fruits, etc. A superfood that has made its way into our breakfast regime, Muesli can be consumed as a bar or as an add-on with some delicious yoghurts and smoothies.

Eat it cold straight away with dairy or plant-based milk or yogurt or eat it hot like oatmeal. In our humble opinion, though, it is best prepared fresh “Bircher muesli” style. This is the true muesli experience get the recipe for the perfect overnight muesli here.

You can also bake with it, mix it. If you have ever read an article about foods you should be eating to lose weight, you’d have come across ‘oats’ and ‘muesli’ in pretty much all of them. Considered to be some of the healthiest breakfast options, oatmeal and muesli are healthy and delicious. As far as Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is concerned, muesli is a Swiss breakfast that was never meant to be eaten with milk—and I, for one, am with him on that. Muesli with milk is like chewing your way through the felt covering of a Mongolian yurt and just about as tasty.

And as for eating it with yoghurt just don’t get me started. Muesli is a general term in German for a wide variety of granola mixtures primarily made up of raw rolled-oats, typically mixed with dried fruits, nuts, seeds and puff or flake cereal. It is a hearty and healthy breakfast choice that mixes well with milk or yogurt. What to eat, when to eat and the ultimate dilemma, should you eat anything at all, have been examined in the context of successful weight loss.

Make Jessica Sepel’s muesli and more. Muesli is a good source of dietary fiber, or roughage. Found in several muesli components, but especially in wheat and oats, fiber helps to curb high cholesterol and prevent digestive problems, such as constipation.

According to the USDA Nutrient Database, a cup or 85 grams of muesli provides 6.2 grams of dietary fiber.

  • Do your homework before publishing such incorrect info. High fibre food is not easy to digest. Oats also have lot of carbs, although good but for some people continuous use of oats also causes weight gain.

  • legumele astea recunosc că folosesc vase românești? va e dor de vremea când erați un imperiu și călcați oamenii pe cap și nici macar nu sunteți capabili să va ascundeți. penbililor

  • I had hot oats with vanilla rice milk this morning. I like to cook a banana in with the oats. Brings out the sweetness of the banana and if you’re trying to save money and don’t wanna be buying oats all the time it creates the illusion of having more oats in your bowl. Chia seeds do that too but I make chia pudding to take with me on work days so I try to save my chia seeds for that. I cook the oats, milk, and banana together and then I add whatever toppings I want. Today it was raspberries that I warmed up, granola, and pecans. When I mixed it all together it was like pink dessert in a bowl. I did add a little bit of stevia but not nearly as much as I would have if I hadn’t cooked the banana or the raspberries.

  • I’ve used this recipe several times and love it! I change up the fruit depending on what I want and what’s in season, but it’s been great! Thank you!

  • What was the whole video abt. When u didn’t answered that which one is better. In the end of video u just detailed the muesli. What abt oats. And which one is better to have.

  • IDK if I’m allergic to oats or if my mom force-fed me them so long as a child that my throat seals shut. but I can’t eat them! I wish I could.

  • I tried this and I have to say, I’m not a fan of overnight muesli. I don’t think the soaking breaks down the oats enough. At least not for my taste. I opt for Jamie’s porridge method with pre made muesli and it comes out delicious! Plus if you have dried fruit in the muesli, it will reconstitute and sweeten the porridge. Delicious!

  • Actually since I’m Swiss i grew up with Bircher Müesli. In this recipe something incredible important is missing: The grated apple! You have to add it to the Bircher Müesli, it’s giving the Müesli its significant taste and texture.

  • Enough antinutrients for your liking? Lol jk but still

    If that were fermented (just as easy), it would be healthier, taste so much better (richer, more complex), and would last longer. “Overnight oats” are missing out on a great opportunity…

  • “Massive protein boost.”

    Chia seeds have roughly 16g protein per 100g. A tablespoon of them as in this recipe would be roughly 2g of protein. Hardly what I’d call massive.

    You’d be much better starting your day off with an omelette. Now that would be a massive protein boost.

  • Yes I do like your breakfast..I’m very into healthy breakfast to..yesterday had oats pumpkin seed chopped Brazil nuts..and mixed berrys from my allotment..with soya milk and a good drizzle of maple syrap..
    Today had mixed mousele..can’t will spell it! With pumpkin seeds chopped almonds rhubarb chopped coconut raisins and a good drizzle of maple syrap..delicious!

  • All almond milk products in Denmark are contaminated with added poisons, the organic ones too, they ahve been sprayed with chemicals even when it says it hasnt. I get intense migraine from ALL non diary alternative milk products so far, so be careful if u are sensitive alr. Sad they ruin the healthy prodcuts, but hey thats Denmark for us:l

  • So you do the pear fresh but only use half of it. Sooo then you use it the next day? When its not fresh. This video smells like bs

  • i always cook the porridge don’t know why but I’m scared of eating raw food so can anyone please tell me which kind of oat should i look for that don’t need boiling? thanx in adv

  • What I have everyday for breaky is my own museli. Soak oats, chia seeds and flaxseeds in fresh homemade sugarless watermelon juice overnight, then in the morning add yoghurt grated apple and mango.

  • Sorry, but this absolutely is NOT Bircher Müesli… and if you are going to call it that, at least find out how to pronounce it properly first. I make Bircher Müesli semi-regularly with no added sugar, it’s really not needed as all the sweetness comes from the fruit. I really don’t understand why you would put maple syrup or vanilla essence in this?

  • I think your understanding of the difference between the two is incomplete. Muesli does not have to be packaged and processed. Oats with either milk(even plant based milk) or yogurt(dahi) and fresh fruit and nuts would be muesli. Yes, if you decide to add a lot of sweetner it’s not great. Of course eating less calories would lead to weight loss so in that sense oats are better for you. If you are adding fresh berries, chia seeds/ground flax seeds, nuts, it has many more calories but also provides many more nutritional components AND it’s going to satisfy you for longer.

  • There is nothing “healthy” about this. And it is not full of energy. Try to go for a long run or bike ride after eating this breakfast and then tell me if there is “energy” in it.

  • I feel better if I have oats as a porridge (boiled in water) vs muesli or a granola, I think boiling the oats must release some nutrients that you don’t get with eating oats in a muesli or granola

  • I eat it with chestnuts and chocolate and milk and its so good

    But

    it gives me a lot of gases and i fart a lot in class and THANK GOD all of them are silent and without a smell

  • Always with the anti sugar. Honey isn’t better than sugar… and better? Just not how it works. Also. This is so expensive considering it’s basically oats. Almond milk….

  • Mam yeh biggest questn aata kha se mne tob khi ni dekha apke comment box blki jo itne sarre ques pooche hn logo ne evn mne b aur wo ques aaj tk cvr ni hue…. pta ni tum log dekhte b ho yah ni…����….

  • Nice recipe but this is something I would do on the weekend. Weekdays I like something quick so probably make porridge with banana or something

  • If u want it in less price..so u can buy normal corn flakes..which is cheap in price and added kellogys oats and added some nuts externally. Which ur fav..and make a healthy breakfast in less price..
