Muesli Applesauce Muffins

Muesli applesauce muffins are a delicious way to start your day. Made with muesli cereal, applesauce, and a cup of your favorite dried fruit. I found the recipe for these muffins on the back of the box of muesli cereal. Purchase muesli cereal at any supermarket or health food store. The variety of muesli I purchased had raisins and dates, so for my extra dried fruit I added dried cherries. Chopped fresh apples would be a great addition to this recipe also. Muesli applesauce muffins are delicious and good for you too. Enjoy them with a drizzle of honey.

Muesli [MYOOS-lee] was developed as a health food by Swiss nutritionist Dr. Bircher-Benner near the end of the 19th century. Muesli has since become a popular breakfast cereal. The German word muesli means “mixture,” and can include raw or toasted cereals such as oats, wheat, millet, barley. Dried fruits such as raisins, apricots, dates and cranberries. Nuts, bran, wheat germ, sugar and dried-milk solids can also be included in the mix. Muesli is most often eaten with milk, yogurt or fruit juice.
