Typical American Granola Compared to Muesli Munch

    

Sean's Organic Muesli Munch is a hybrid breakfast cereal that lies between traditional European muesli and American granola. 

   Granola is breakfast cereal combined primarily with oils, sweeteners, grains and often a few dried fruits, nuts and seeds that are all mixed together and baked to clump the mix together. It tends to be overly sweetened, overcooked and it really feels more like a heavy dessert.

   But American's love the taste of granola and it’s easy to serve.  It also makes a great snack. Unfortunately, it has a lot of calories hidden in its goodness.  It's heavy and is usually prepared with lots of oil and sweetener and lacks nutritional value.

   Traditional European muesli is light and healthy.  However, it traditionally needs to be prepped the night before.  And to that it's usually made with raw grains (that means unbaked, unroasted grains).  The bottom line?  More time and less flavor.

   My goal with Sean's Muesli Munch is to bridge these two traditions by offering a hybrid cereal with all the quick-to-go flavor of American granola, and all the healthy goodness of European muesli.  In other words, I wanted a cereal that would fit what Americans wanted in their cereal without giving up the flavor and fitting our fast lifestyle.

   After a full year of experimenting, I came up with an American version of muesli that makes that bridge over to the great taste and on-the-go readiness of granola. Sean's Organic Muesli Munch is that cross-over cereal that is both a healthy and well-balanced blend of 3 toasted whole grains, 3 roasted nuts and seeds and 3 fruits and berries. The cereal is lightly toasted, has sweetness from organic dried fruits and feels light.  Muesli Munch can be eaten daily to provide energy without weighing you down.

    It's the best of both worlds.

Only the Very Best ... Premium, Organic, Superfood Muesli

 Premium Muesli the Sean's Muesli Munch Way!

   

"So," you are asking yourself, "what makes it worth me switching from my current brand of morning cereal to Sean's Muesli Munch?
   First of all, growing up on an organic subtropical fruit ranch on California's central coast, I learned early on that organic foods are the best tasting, the healthiest and the most beneficial for our ofttimes struggling environment. Here at Muesli Munch we follow that philosophy in everything we do. By creating handcrafted, small batch organic muesli cereal blends that are loaded with high quality organic grains, fruits, nuts and seeds, we make sure you are eating only the very best and freshest. By using steam rolled whole grains, and only adding sweetness that nature provides, and combining the tastiest organic nuts, fruits and whole grains in each blends you will have a unique taste that will give hours of energy and support a healthy diet.
    Try each of our unique flavors, Pumpkin Pecan and Cranberry Coconut -- and later this summer Walnut Currant, and have a great start to an amazing day or a really swell snack along the way.

The Muesli Munch Mission

    Oatmeal is boring, granola is too sugary, and traditional muesli requires a day ahead preparation time. These are among the reasons Muesli Munch was formed, to create a breakfast cereal, which all Americans could enjoy. A cereal formed with nine wholesome ingredients in every blend to give a combination of great taste and nutritional benefits. We wanted our cereal crafted with only organic ingredients from nature, as all ingredients should be. Muesli Munch is not too sweet and has healthy fat content from nuts and seeds instead of cheap filler oils. It’s also a versatile cereal that can be served quick with cold milk or yogurt or hot just like oatmeal. Our blends are not only a substantial meal, but provide long Gluten Freedom Muesli - new and improvedlasting energy for the day. 
    We use 100% whole grains, nuts and seeds to provide a fresh crispy taste, as opposed to many over baked granolas. Our passion and expertise is our small batch, hand crafted breakfast cereal blends, and we are all about quality over quantity. Unlike many food businesses corporations, which grow too fast, over expand their product line for marketing purposes, and diminish their original vision and quality as a result. 
    Not here, not us, Sean’s Muesli Munch sole mission is to provide a select few, hand crafted top notch breakfast cereal blends, and only change with the tastes and preferences of our fans.
   In fact, due to overwhelming customer feedback we have already created a  new Muesli Munch blend, Gluten Freedom Muesli. So we are listening. Keep the good words coming. We want to hear your feedback.

 Cheers !  Sean

 

 

Compare Us to the Other Guys -- Muesli Munch & Nature’s Path

    While Nature’s Path provides some decent organic cereals compared to the usual fare one sees down the typical grocery store aisles these day, there are still some major nutritional differences with one of the most highly touted health cereals in the US as compared to Muesli Munch. Of course, it's always great to see -- compared to large, nation wide non-organic cereal brands that are laced with all that high fructose corn syrup -- that cereal's like Nature's Path are far better than your garden variety cereal.  
    But all you have to do is compare Nature's Path nutrition facts to see the difference with Sean's Organic Muesli Munch.

Welcome to Sean's Muesli Munch - A Great New Way to Do Breakfast !

Having tried many different cereal varieties and flavors in stores, I found the European's traditional Muesli to be the healthiest, and our American Granola to be the best tasting.  But the European Muesli needs a day ahead preparation time ... and that didn't fit my American lifestyle of eat on the go.  Plus it didn't have the same full flavor as granola.  I wanted something healthy but was not satisfied with the prep time involved or the lack of robust flavor.  Since I couldn't find it, I decided to make it myself and then share it with all my friends.
