The basic difference between granola and muesli is in the composition and preparation of the product. Granola is slightly baked food made of significantly richer ingredients with a higher quality, such as nuts, seeds and additives, whereas muesli is made of cereals and additives.
What is granola?
Granola contains mostly nuts and seeds, flaxseed flour and a binding agent. Everything is baked so that the end result are baked flakes in the form of tasty and crunchy lumps. Granola is eaten with milk or yogurt of animal or plant origin, but it can also be served with natural juice. Granola is not only a delicious breakfast, but also a quick and tasty snack. It can also be eaten as an independent meal.
What is muesli?
Muesli is made of oats or other grains, such as quinoa or millet. It is usually mixed with dried fruit or other additives. Most often, it is served with milk or yogurt. Many people leave muesli soak in cold milk, apple juice or orange juice overnight, which makes it mushy. Some people prefer it cooked in hot milk or water, which also results in a mushy texture.
