Trader Joe’s MUESLI Breakfast Cereal


This is probably the healthiest cereal you can buy at Trader Joe’s. “Swiss Muesli” is a classic breakfast cereal invented over a hundred years ago by a Swiss doctor. It’s a blend of whole grain oats, seeds, fruit and nuts.

Contains no added sugars

TJ’s Muesli ingredients: Whole grain rolled oats, sunflower seeds, raisins, rice crisps, pumpkins seeds, coconut, dried apple, sliced almonds

This is obviously healthy stuff, that even a horse would love. Trader Joe’s version of Muesli is good. One caveat though. If you just pour it into a bowl, add milk, and eat it immediately, you may not like it. Unless you are a horse and you don’t mind giving your jaws a work out. Otherwise you probably want to let this soften up a bit, meaning let those rolled oats get hydrated and soften up by sitting in milk for at least 15-20 minutes – that is in your choice of breakfast beverage (milk and/or yogurt or kefir). The longer it sits, the better. Actually I really enjoy Muesli when I mix some up as “overnight oats” the night before. That way in the morning it’s nice and thick and soft. Making “Overnight oats” is easy. Just put some muesli (or rolled oats) in a container, add liquid and let it sit in the fridge. I do Kefir and some soy milk and/or yogurt. If you find “overnight oats” too mushy for your tastes, just try to wake up and pour some milk on your Muesli before taking your shower and giving it a 20 minute soak. I typically add some fresh fruit (banana, apple, berries) and a bit of something crunchy as a topping like TJ’s Grainless Granola and more yogurt or kefir.

This is a good healthy breakfast, that will keep you (or your horse) going all day. I bet Roger Federer grew up eating Muesli and look how far he got.

A 16 oz bag is about $4. Worth trying.
