View Full Version : Museli.... in muffins?
09-24-2004, 09:02 AM
I bought a bag of Museli... I was trying to duplicate something and it's just not getting it. I was thinking of trying to use up the bag of Museli in a muffin recipe. My searches resulted in zilch. Any suggestions on subbing the museli for oats or something in a recipe? It doesn't quite have the texture of oatmeal so I am worried about subbing it one for one. Plus, there's a decent amount of dried fruit and I am just not sure what to do. Any help will be greatly appreciated!

I had the same problem a while back, and I didn't get any response to the thread I started. A search at allrecipes.com came up with some ideas, and I tried these muesli-applesauce muffins which were very good. I ommitted the 1 c. of raisins since my muesli had quite a bit of fruit in it already, and I made them into mini muffins. The only thing I might do differently next time is to soak the muesli in the liquid ingredients for a while before proceeding with the recipe, just to soften the oats a little more. But even without doing that, I thought they were very good.
Here is the link....
There are other recipes there using muesli, too.

These don't have museli, but they have lots of fruit and are very good muffins:
Morning Glory Muffins
From Cooking Light
Apples are too delicate to be grated with a food processor, so we recommend using a stand-up grater. We left the skins on, but the result will be just as good if you peel the apples.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups shredded carrot
1 cup shredded Rome or other cooking apple
3/4 cup raisins
1/3 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup flaked sweetened coconut
1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple in juice, drained
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup apple butter
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 large egg whites
Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients (flour through salt) in a large bowl. Stir in carrot and next 5 ingredients (carrot through pineapple); make a well in center of mixture. Combine oil and next 4 ingredients (oil through egg whites); stir with a whisk. Add oil mixture to flour mixture, stirring just until moist.
Spoon the batter into 24 muffin cups coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until muffins spring back when touched lightly in center. Remove muffins from pans immediately; cool on a wire rack.
Note: Muffins can be stored in an airtight container and frozen for up to 1 month. Wrap in foil, and reheat at 300°.
Yield: 2 dozen (serving size: 1 muffin)

Thanks so much for the link. It's strange because I went there and didn't get any hits on my search. I really appreciate you pointing it out to me.
Char, I make these a lot, DH loves them.
Editing to say, my mistake. I haven't been to this website before.
Kathy, did you add any extra museli since the volume wouldn't be same because of the dried fruit? That's the part I am not sure about.

I did not add any extra muesli. Omitting the fruit (if you want to do that) would be the same as leaving out the nuts or chocolate chips in another recipe. It shouldn't affect the final muffin.
I found the recipe by doing a google search for muesli bread recipes, as that is what I was actually looking for. I didn't find what I wanted (a yeast bread without the bread machine), but I found the muffin recipe and a couple of others that I haven't tried yet while I was looking. If you want to look at more recipes, you might try the google search. Good luck! :)

I made the applesauce muesli muffins and they're good.
It's funny though, half my complaint about muesli is it seems soggy right away. The recipe poster and Kathy both alluded to the muesli being crunchy and this has never been my experience with it. It's why it didn't orginally work in the recipe I was trying to duplicate. Must be me :( . I'll have to stick with granola. It's a texture I like.
Thanks again for all the help. I have half a bag left and will check out the other suggestions.

The muesli in the muffins I made wasn't exactly crunch, more like a chewy texture that seemed out of place in the muffins. I'm not sure how you could keep it crunchy as the moisture in the batter will always be absorbed to some extent and soften the muesli. Granola might be a better choice as you said. Good luck!
In the meantime, I never did find a recipe for a yeast bread using muesli (like they sell in the grocery store). If you happen across a recipe like that while you are trying to use up your muesli, let me know. I still have quite a bit left, too! :)
