Here are a few additional informations on muesli and granola:
Muesli is a mix of cereals and dried fruits. It’s usually eaten in the morning with milk or yogurt, as a bowl of cereals. The term was first used by Swiss doctor Maximilian Bircher-Benner who served bircher muesli to his patients.
Granola is also a mix of cereals and sometimes includes nuts and dried fruits. It is pre-cooked in the oven with fat and a sweetening agent. Those give granola its golden brown colour while also binding it.
Large flake oats
Pecans, coarsely chopped
Dark chocolate (chipits, shredded, drops)
Preheat the oven to 160 °C (325 °F). Line the baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix the dry ingredients together. Incorporate the wet ingredients. Mix well.
Spread the granola on the baking sheet. Bake for about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Let cool completely and add the chocolate. Store in a sealed container.
Granola can be kept in a sealed container at room temperature for many days, even weeks in the right conditions. During summer, or if there’s a lot of humidity, you can reheat your granola in the oven to dry it out again!
