History of Granola (or muesli)
Muesli was generated around 1900 as part of a high-fiber diet by a Swiss doctor named Maximilian Bircher–Benner. It always consists of oatmeal combined with nuts, fruit (fresh or dried) or other seeds. There are plenty of variations when you go looking for them. Since the sixties, granola taken off among a large audience and it becomes very popular for breakfast (but did you knew that in Germany and Switzerland muesli sometimes is eaten as a light evening meal).
Can you think of anything better than homemade. You know exactly what ingredients you used and when you’re in luck, your house smells really great.
In a matter effect, the next recipe got such a great smell! There is only one problem… the granola is gone before you blinked your eyes.
- This recipe uses almonds. But this can be interchanged with walnuts, hazelnuts et cetera (or a mixture of nuts);
- If you want to add currants or other dried fruit add it after baking, when the granola is cooled down;
- This granola is delicious with a few tablespoons homemade jam and yogurt!
