Crunchy Muesli

Also known as “granola”, the crunchy muesli is the perfect replacement of cereals for breakfast. It was developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner for patients in his hospital, where a diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables was an essential part of therapy. So this healthy food will be perfect to start the day with lots of energies!
