Muesli is a traditional Swiss/German breakfast food. It has a very interesting history! This breakfast food was “invented” by a Swiss doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner for the patients in his hospital more than hundred years ago. This doctor was way ahead of his time!

He believed that nutrition played a huge role in healing. He created this cereal made of primarily cut oats and fruit after tasting something similar during a trip through the Swiss Alps. Today of course we know how important it is to have a healthy breakfast and what a huge role that healthy breakfast plays in overall health but in 1900 the year Muesli was created as a breakfast food this was quite the radical idea.

In modern times Muesli gained popularity again in the 1960’s when people started becoming more health conscious and the interest in vegetarianism spiked.

Authentic Muesli

There are some grocery store options for classic Muesli but they pale in comparison to authentic Muesli. Most grocery store options are chock full of fillers, added fats and added sugars. This of course was not the intent of the founder of this healthy breakfast food.

Authentic Muesli is made from rolled oats! It is not made with other unnecessary ingredients. The whole point of eating this healthy breakfast food is so that you can add the other ingredients that you prefer like fruit and nuts.
