I do enjoy a good muffin now again, but I’m picky.  I like a muffin to have great flavor, be moist, not too sweet, relatively healthy and memorable.  That’s a lot to expect from a muffin.  With this in mind, I decided to create a muffin using one of my favorite cereals, muesliBobs Red Mill has a truly fantastic muesli I recently discovered and it was perfect for my muffins. Any muesli can work in this recipe, but Bob’s is particularly good and has a great balance of flavors and textures which I love. These are yummy banana muesli muffins and subtle enough for those who are not huge banana fans like my boys.banana muesli muffins

Muesli (pronounced Mews-le) is a fiber-and-protein rich breakfast based on raw, rolled oats, but today it has evolved into so much more.  Loaded with nuts, seeds, fruits, vitamins and iron, this protein-rich cereal surpasses all other breakfast cereals around. Muesli is often compared to granola, but truly it should not be, it is so much more.  Muesli is typically substantially lower in sugar with fewer calories and the high fiber component makes it a filling one.
