The Ultimate Guide: How to Eat Muesli

The Ultimate Guide: How to Eat Muesli

Posted by Hannah Barnstable on

Since 2011, we've been crafting clean, certified gluten free, and absolutely delicious muesli mixes. You could say we've been around the (breakfast) block a time or two when it comes to making the perfect bowl! Now we're passing our knowledge onto you...

How do I prepare muesli?

Given the versatility of muesli, there are endless ways to eat and use it, but don't let its diverse nature fool you. Preparing muesli is about as easy and convenient as it gets at breakfast time. Everyone finds their preferred preparation style, and this guide will help you get started to find your own.


Eating muesli cold is as easy as pouring a bowl of cereal with milk. Combine equal parts muesli and milk of choice (1/2 cup + 1/2 cup = one serving) and eat immediately. 

Prefer a creamier, softer texture? (Think overnight oats!) Follow the same ratio, but let your muesli soak in the fridge 20 minutes to overnight. Some prefer soaking their muesli for its ease of digestibility. Read more on that here!

Some muesli eaters like to load their bowl or jar with extra toppings. We've seen anything from yogurt to nut butters, sweeteners like maple syrup and honey, fresh fruits, extra nuts and seeds, and even vegetables! The sky is the limit.


Oatmeal lovers will take to this method of preparation, which also happens to be our favorite on chilly winter mornings. Making hot muesli is easy and convenient:

On the Stovetop

Combine and simmer equal parts muesli and liquid (water or milk) in a pot over medium high heat for 3-4 minutes. Let stand 2 minutes.

In the Microwave

Combine and heat equal parts muesli and liquid (water or milk) in a microwave-safe bowl for 1 minute. Stir and let stand 2 minutes.


Add a layer of muesli to fresh fruit and yogurt parfaits, or use a few spoonfuls on top of your next smoothie for a little added crunch. You can also add muesli into muffin mixes, cookie recipes, and a Barnstable personal favorite: put a big scoop of muesli into pancake mixes (~1/2 cup for every cup of pancake mix)!

Other FAQs + Ways to Use Muesli 

Can I use muesli in baked goods?

Oat based mueslis work well in almost any baked good recipe that calls for oats! We typically sub 1-1 or replace at least half the oats with muesli. Check out our blog for tons of muesli-filled baked goods! 

 Can I eat your muesli right out of the bag?

Yes! No matter the mix, our muesli is perfectly safe to eat right out of the bag.
