While Nature’s Path provides some decent organic cereals compared to the usual fare one sees with high fructose corn syrup, there are still some major nutritional differences with one of the largest organic cereal makers in the US as compared to Muesli Munch. Let's take, for example, Nature’s Path New Coconut Chia Granola and compare it to Muesli Munch's New Cinnamon Walnut Muesli blend. The difference in nutrition content is significant.
Muesli Munch (Cinnamon Walnut Muesli) Has More Protein, Less Fat And No Added Sugar! It has only 6 grams total sugars, naturally occurring from organic dried fruits, with NO SUGAR ADDED!
Nature’s Path (Coconut Chia Granola) has 9 grams of total sugars and 8 GRAMS ADDED SUGARS. Cane Sugar is the second ingredient and soy oil is the third ingredient.
Muesli Munch (Cinnamon Walnut Muesli) has more protein than Nature’s Path (Coconut Chia Granola). That's 7 grams in Muesli Munch vs. only 5 grams in Nature's Path.
Muesli Munch (Cinnamon Walnut Muesli) Has Less Fat And No Sodium.
Muesli Munch (Cinnamon Walnut Muesli) has 6 grams total fat per serving, that's healthy fats from walnuts, pumpkin, sunflower and chia seeds.
Nature’s Path (Coconut Chia Granola) has 11 GRAMS FAT with soy oil being the majority of overall fat content.
Muesli Munch (Cinnamon Walnut Muesli) has 0 mg sodium per serving.
Nature’s Path (Coconut Chia Granola) HAS 50 MG.

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.
So Go Kickstart Your Day! Sean
Happy New Years Muesli Munch Fans! I am grateful to live and work on the Central Coast of California. Thank you all for your feedback as our business continues to grow. In a few months each blend will have new labels and improved flavors, stay tuned! Sean
"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.

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.

7 Cups, Sean’s Organic Muesli Munch (Any Flavor)

½ Cup Organic Olive Oil or Grape Seed Oil
2 Teaspoons Sea Salt

4: Bake in the middle of a pre-heated oven at 330 degrees for 70 minutes.

While Muesli Munch is a great base food even by itself, we recommend the following toppings to enhance the flavor and/or nutrition content. We've listed a few topping favorites on the package -- like fresh berries, diced apples or sliced bananas. These are classics, of course. If you want to make it sweeter, try a drizzle of organic honey or maple syrup. For those of you who are into enhancing taste and keep your sugar levels down (glycemic index) try sprinkling cinnamon on top of your muesli.
If you are in the snacking mode, then just spoon some cottage cheese or crunchy peanut butter (or almond butter is great too) on top of your Muesli Munch.
You see Muesli Munch can travel with you wherever you go so you'll always have just the right breakfast or snack with you -- no hard choices to make that will tempt you off your healthy eating plan. Sean's Muesli Munch is delicious and healthy. Just get some fruit or peanut butter to top it off!
Two toppings not listed on packaging, which we recommend, are chia seeds (ground or powder) or flax (ground only). Both contain high Omega 3’s and additional protein, which is especially great to top Muesli Munch with, when used as a pre-workout meal. While chia provides Omega 3s whole or ground, studies show that flax must be ground to receive the best nutrition benefits.
