Our ingredients are simple (whole grains, nuts, seeds, and dried fruits), but we know from experience that not all grains, nuts, seeds, and dried fruits taste the same. More importantly, not all ingredients feel the same and provide the body with the same benefits. That’s why, at mueslihaus, we’re committed to serving only delicious, all-natural ingredients with no added sugar.
There is no denying it. Natural food feels different! Not to mention, it’s better for you and better for the environment. We’re proud to say we’re currently working on becoming certified-organic.
It can be tough to find variety on a vegan (or even vegetarian) diet. Mueslihaus Muesli is the perfect solution! It’s nutritious, easy, versatile, and tastes amazing with almond or oat milk. It’s the perfect addition to your plant-based life.
Sugar is bad for you. Muesli is good for you. There is no place for sugar in Muesli. That’s why about 95% of mueslihaus ingredients contain absolutely no added sugar. (We cheated a little with the chocolate… You’re welcome!)
Rolled oats are a type of lightly processed whole-grain food. First, groats are picked from the Avena Sativa plant. Then, they’re dehusked (stripped of their outer shell covering), steamed, and rolled flat by heavy rollers. Lastly, they’re lightly toasted for extra taste and crunch.
Oats are among the healthiest grains on Earth. In addition to being a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants, they’re also beneficial for heart health, weight control, constipation relief, and blood sugar management.

Wheat Flakes are made from whole grain wheat berries that have been steamed and rolled. While they may look similar to old fashioned rolled oats, they have a firmer texture and a more pronounced flavor. Wheat flakes are high in fiber, protein, iron, vitamin A.

Barley (Hordeum vulgare), a member of the grass family, is a popular cereal grain grown in temperate climates all around the world. Barley contains many important vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. It’s also a good source of beta-glucan – a fiber which can help lower cholesterol and blood sugar.
Barley flakes are made in a similar manner to rolled oats. First, the barley grains are dehulled or pearled (removed of their outer husk and bran layers). Then, they’re hydrated (usually through steaming). Lastly, they’re lightly toasted and rolled for extra taste and crunch.
Most people call almonds nuts, but they’re actually seeds! Almonds are the edible seeds of Prunus dulcis, more commonly called the almond tree. Almonds can be enjoyed both raw and roasted, but roasted nuts must be roasted at a low to medium temperature to maintain their many beneficial properties.
Almonds contain vitamins, minerals, fiber, and proteins – so much protein, in fact, that just a handful of almonds contains one-eighth of a person’s daily protein needs. They also contain healthy fats which can help lower blood pressure and improve overall heart health.
Like almonds, walnuts aren’t actually nuts! Walnuts come from what are called stone fruits – the fruits that grow on walnut trees. Just like peaches, these stone fruits have one single seed at their core. We call this seed a walnut.
Walnuts have so many proven health benefits that scientists and industry experts actually host walnut conferences from time to time to discuss the latest walnut health research. So far, scientists have discovered that walnuts have higher antioxidant activity and significantly more healthy omega-3 fats than all other common nuts. This makes them great for the heart.
Almonds are seeds. Walnuts are seeds. So, what do you think about pecans – are they nuts or seeds? Pecans are actually nuts! Pecans are a type of tree nut native to North America. They come from hickory trees that grow mainly in northern Mexico and southern regions in the United States.
Pecans are rich in several important nutrients, including fiber, copper, vitamin B1, and zinc. They’re also high in mono and polyunsaturated fatty acids. This unique combination of nutrients and fatty acids makes them particularly beneficial for heart health, blood sugar stabilization, and brain function.
Cashews come from a tropical tree known as Anacardium occidentale. The tree produces a small kidney-shaped fruit called a drupe. Inside the drupe is an edible seed that most people call a cashew nut. Yup! Just like almonds and walnuts, cashews are actually seeds that most people refer to as nuts.
Cashews are low in sugar and rich in fiber, heart-healthy unsaturated fats, and plant protein. They’re also a good source of copper, magnesium, and manganese – all of which are important for the immune system, energy production, and brain health.
The sunflower seed is the fruit of the sunflower. The seeds are harvested from the plant’s large flower heads, which can be so large that each one can contain up to 2,000 seeds.
Sunflower seeds are high in polyunsaturated fats which, according to the American Heart Association, are quite good for the heart. Sunflower seeds may help reduce bad (LDL) cholesterol levels, reduce heart attack risk, reduce stroke risk, manage blood sugar, and lower blood pressure. They may also help with energy production, helping the body metabolize fats, carbs, and proteins and turn them into energy.
Flax seeds are small oil seeds that originated in the Middle East thousands of years ago. Since the beginning of cultivation, flax seeds have been revered for their health benefits – so revered, in fact, that Charles the Great, the medieval emperor who ruled much of Western Europe from 768 to 814, passed a law requiring all of his subjects to eat it on a daily basis!
Flax seeds are very high in fiber and protein. They’re also rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and several vitamins and minerals that contribute to optimal health, including thiamine (vitamin B1), copper, molybdenum, magnesium, and phosphorus. According to the latest research, flax seeds may help improve digestion and may also help reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and several types of cancers.

Banana chips are fried, crispy slices of banana. Ours are fried in organic coconut oil and lightly seasoned with organic cane sugar to make a slightly sweet and crunchy Muesli topping.
Banana chips aren’t as rich with nutrients as fresh bananas, but they do offer a decent amount of potassium and fiber. The biggest advantage of banana chips is that they offer a quick source of energy, making them the perfect addition to our sport Muesli.
Coconut flakes made from coconut meat. First, the meat is boiled. Then, it’s cut into substantial flakes. Finally, it’s dried out.
Coconut meat is rich in several important minerals, including manganese which supports overall health and may improve brain function and copper which is especially good for heart health. Coconut meat is also high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) which may benefit heart health, digestion, brain health, blood sugar levels, and immunity. They also convert more easily into energy compared to other sources of fat like complex carbs and animal meats, making coconut flakes perfect fuel for a workout.
Apricots, also known as Armenian plums, are round and yellow. They look like peaches, but as their name suggests, apricots taste more like plums. Our dried apricots are simply dried, diced, and lightly rolled in rice flour to keep them from sticking together. No sugar is added, but no sugar is necessary. They’re perfectly sweet on their own.
Apricots are both delicious and nutritious. They’re packed with vitamin A, C, and E and are high in potassium, fiber, and antioxidants. Some of the most notable benefits of apricots include benefits for the eyes, skin, heart, and overall immune function.
Raisins are dried grapes. Sweet, small, chewy, and nutritious, raisins are the perfect topping for Muesli.
As far as nutrition is concerned, raisins are packed with fiber, iron, calcium, and antioxidants, which makes them great for digestive health, heart health, bone health, and the immune system. One study also concluded that raisins may help support healthy teeth and gums.

Dates are interesting little fruits because they look and taste like dried fruits (they have all the sweetness and texture of dried fruits), but they’re actually not dried fruits! Dates are completely fresh!
Dates are an excellent source of dietary fiber, making them great for the digestive system. They’re also packed with potassium and antioxidants and actually contain up to three times as much potassium as bananas. Last but not least, some research suggests that dates may improve brain health and reduce risk of Alzheimer’s.
Blueberries have the highest antioxidant power of all the most popular fruits and vegetables! Studies show that they’re wonderful for the immune system and may be able to reduce risk of cancer and heart disease. They may also improve brain function! A six-year study in over 16,000 older individuals found that blueberries and strawberries were linked to delays in mental aging by up to 2.5 years.
Freeze-dried fruit is fruit that is frozen and then placed in a vacuum under very low pressures. The idea is to cause ice crystals to form and then evaporate, removing the water from the fruit. The process of freeze-drying creates a light and airy texture – perfect for Muesli toppings. Freeze-dried fruits have all of the benefits of fresh fruit without any of the water, so they often taste slightly sweeter and more flavorful than their fresh-fruit equivalents.
Our freeze-dried raspberries are simply raspberries and nothing else! They don’t have any sweeteners or preservatives, which means they’re equal parts tart and sweet.
Raspberries are healthy little berries. They’re high in fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Studies suggest that antioxidants in raspberries may help reduce risk of diabetes, cancer, obesity, and arthritis. They may also have some powerful anti-aging properties.
Our freeze-dried raspberries are simply strawberries and nothing else! They don’t have any sweeteners or preservatives, which is great for your health and your tastebuds! Our strawberries are really sweet on their own. If we added any sugar, they’d be super, ultra sweet.
Strawberries are an excellent source of vitamin C and manganese and also contain quite a bit of folate (vitamin B9) and potassium. They’re also rich in antioxidants, which may have benefits for heart health and blood sugar control. They may also improve brain function! A six-year study in over 16,000 older individuals found that blueberries and strawberries were linked to delays in mental aging by up to 2.5 years.
Chocolate is made from the seed of the cacao tree, and cacao comes with many health benefits. Cacao is rich in fiber, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese and a few other minerals and also contains a wide variety of antioxidants. In addition, studies suggest that cacao may improve blood flow, lower blood pressure, and improve cognitive function.
So cacao is great, but chocolate that’s 100% cacao is almost too bitter to eat, which is why most chocolate contains a percentage of cacao with other added ingredients. Our chocolate contains 55% cacao, along with Organic Cane Sugar, Organic Deodorized Cocoa Butter* (Vegan), Organic Chocolate Liquor*, Organic Rice Syrup Solids, and Organic Rice Maltodextrin.
At mueslihaus, we thought about using dark chocolate and even tried it in some of our Mueslis, but it was just too bitter! We think chocolate should taste like chocolate, ya know? So, we stuck to this no milk chocolate. It’s not as healthy, but it’s so delicious.
Because it’s so versatile, there are really endless possibilities. The only thing we don’t really suggest is eating Muesli directly out of the bag.
Healthy, delicious, and nutritious, it’s simply a better way to breakfast. Plus, it’s not only good for you, but it’s also good for the planet.
