What Is Muesli?

Muesli is a mixture of rolled oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Unlike granola, muesli isn't baked with sweeteners or oil. Find your favorite brand in supermarkets or make your own muesli. Check out our recipe for Scandinavian Muesli.

Can I Swap in Plant-Based Milk?

Absolutely! Our recommendation is to choose a plain, unsweetened plant-based milk. Flavorings and sweeteners will affect not only the nutrition, but also the taste.
