I first enjoyed this scrumptious, nutty cereal in Germany and Austria, and more recently at the Naramata Centre in British Columbia, Canada. It's excellent mixed into fruity yogurt.

This Granola has great flavor but using all the measurements provided it came out kinda sticky. I made it side by side with the almond maple granola which came out great but the muesli never really dried enough to be crunchy it just browned still staying soft. Next time I'll use less honey. I'm going to salvage this batch by adding raisins and/or chocolate chips roll it into half serving size balls and take it hiking as serious-energy trail mix! Read More

I DO WATCH HOW OFTEN I EAT THIS WITH THE CALORIES BUT MY TEENAGERS LOVE THIS AND EAT IT THEN BURN IT ALL OFF. I FEEL GOOD ABOUT MAKING SOMETHING THAT IS SO HEALTHY FOR THEM AND HAVE THEM EAT IT TOO.

Yes this is granola. No I will not rate it lower because the submitter calls it "muesli". It's a good tasty basic granola recipe. I'd suggest using at least two baking sheets. I made half a batch and had to divide it between two baking sheets to get it to bake evenly. If you want chunky granola don't stir during the last 40 minutes or so. This is great served with yogurt and berries. Read More

The "coating" for the recipe can be played with. I've used brown sugar as well a sweet corn syrup in place of some of the honey. I've also tried other grains. Comes out great every time. Read More

I used wheat bran because I didn't know where to find rolled wheat and I didn't feel like figuring it out. Read More

I didn't have some of the ingredients on hand so left them out (rolled wheat sesame seeds wheat germ) and I increased the pumpkin seeds to 1/2 cup. I used 1/2 cup honey and 1/4 cup turbinado sugar (mixed sugar with dry ingredients) and added 1/2 tsp of salt to cut the sweet. I microwaved the oil/honey mixture for 20 seconds instead of dirtying a saucepan and it mixed just fine into the dry ingredients. Then I baked on two parchment paper-lined sheets at 250 for about 2 hrs stirring every 30 mins. It smelled amazing! After taking it out I let it sit on the pans to harden up then broke it into chunks and added dried cranberries. Delicious great with Greek yogurt! Read More
