Many years ago I worked at a restaurant that offered Muesli on their breakfast menu. This was the first time I had ever heard of it and I discovered peopleâ€™s love for the cereal by how many times I had to get out the ingredients to prepare the bowl which included yogurt and raspberry jam.
Muesli is a tasty cereal made of rolled grains, dried fruit and seeds. It was developed in the 19th century by a Swiss nutritionist and is unique since it is can be eaten either cold or hot. You can simply heat it up as a traditional morning hot cereal, or eat it with milk, yogurt, apple juice, fresh fruit or anything else you can think of. At the restaurant I worked at, the muesli was soaking in apple juice overnight, which gave it a distinctive consistency and blended well with extras added in.
This recipe comes from the back of our Old Country Style Muesli Cereal. The cookies are a perfect blend of sweetness and grain. The Muesli cereal adds great texture and with chocolate chips, everyone will enjoy them. The extra bonus is the nutrition since they are completely whole grain.
