What is muesli (or granola)?
Muesli, or granola, is a wholesome mixture of oats, whole grains, variety of dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Both are great sources of whole grains, fibers, fatty acids, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Not to mention, it’s, delicious and nutritious! Learn more here
Why should I choose to buy muesli/granola from MixMyOwn.com over of my local grocery store?
Cereal mixes in grocery stores are designed to make money, and muesli doesn't always work that way. There are a few muesli options available, but most of the commercially processed ones you will find have low quality ingredients, added sugar and artificial flavors, as well as a high percentage of fat content.
With MixMyOwn.com, you have complete control over your health and your blend!
- Store-bought cereal mixes are made of refined grains and they often contain a lot of salt, artificial preservatives, flavors or partially hydrogenated oils (trans fats). They may look healthy but many of them are low in fiber and contain added sugar from ingredients like corn syrup, white sugar and evaporated cane syrup.
At MixMyOwn.com, you can choose from 100% natural, organic, and nutritious ingredients with no added sugar or preservatives. We also offer gluten-free ingredients for those with food constraints. How’s that for having a breakfast that’s just right for you! All you need to do is add or remove ingredients until you find your perfect mix.
Ingredients you like, health you can taste.
- Have you been eating the same breakfast cereal each and every day? Tired of plain old raisins? Try some extra goji berries with antioxidants instead! Don´t like cinnamon? Enjoy some poppy seed power! Ever tried quinoa or amaranth? Why not add that to your next bowl? You can customize your breakfast again and again – with millions of possibilities!
MixMyOwn.com provides you with the perfect muesli that’s designed just for you. Now you’ll never have anything in your cereal bowl that you don’t love.
Real fruit, nuts, and seeds!
- Pre-packaged cereals in grocery stores contain meager amounts of fruits and nuts because big companies aren’t willing to pay the extra dollar for healthier ingredients.
You don’t have to use a magnifying glass to find strawberries, apricots or black currants in our MixMyOwn.com muesli! You can decide the amount of each ingredient in your mix. The doses we offer are based on our best practice; you can always add more with just one click!
Are all of the ingredients organic?
With nearly 100 ingredients, we offer a vast amount of variety. If you want to make your ingredients organic, choose those. If not, don't. The food decisions are all up to you. At MixMyOwn.com, you can choose from a wide range of 100% natural, organic, unprocessed, and NON GMO ingredients. To find detailed information about each ingredient, just click MORE INFO. All of our ingredients were carefully chosen to provide you with the best possible quality.
Can I name my mix?
Go for it! You can change the name of your mix in the right column, above the list of ingredients you added. You can also go through the checkout process, where you'll find a place to let your creativity soar.
How can I suggest a new ingredient?
Simple, just send us the idea using our contact information and we'll see what we can do to make your dream mix come true!
How long can I store muesli/granola?
Three months is the general rule of thumb (if you can keep from eating it that long). However, certain ingredients won’t keep for the full six months.
Can I order one of my previous mixes again?
You bet. Just check out the Mix ID on your bag or order form and use that number the next time you order.
Are the pictures of the ingredients real?
Of course! We want you to see just how delicious our ingredients are. Heck, we eat them too!
What can I expect if I have a food allergy?
If you have food concerns, feel free to read the descriptions alongside each ingredient. We've clearly labeled things so there aren’t any misunderstandings. Mixes are packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, and milk products.
Do you provide gluten-free ingredients?
Yes! We offer many gluten- free ingredients. We have separate containers, mixing tools and utensils for gluten-free ingredients. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee the threshold proposed by the FDA, which is to have less than 20 parts per million of gluten. However, we do intend to build a completely separate facility for guaranteed gluten-free products and will inform you when it is ready.
How is my mix packed?
We pack up your customized mix in a sealed plastic bag, which is equipped with a reclosable Ziplock to ensure that it arrives to you safe and sound. This type of packaging is environmentally friendly, using 75% less material than traditional packaging.
Size matters! How large will my package be?
We currently offer 1 lb packages. In the future, you will be able to choose between a 1 lb and a 2 lb package. Because bigger is better, right? :-)
How many ingredients can I choose?
As many as your heart desires. Just don’t forget that each ingredient lowers the ratio of the selected base.
What are my payment options?
Shipping costs just $4.99 for the first bag and $1 more with every additional bag.
We use USPS Priority Mail or FedEx for all our shipping needs. These companies are fast and they want to make sure you enjoy your cereal as quickly as we do.
We ship next business day. The average delivery time is 2–3 business days, depending on your location. Exceptions apply for shipping package with 4 (and more) mixes.
Do I receive any special perks when I make large orders?
