    You can use it in flapjacks, as a crumble topping to fruit, sprinkled in yoghurt, even make porridge with it! I'll come back if I think of any more

    You could use it in flapjacks instead of oats or put half a serving in a bowl, top with a couple of tablespoons greek yogurt, chopped apple, banana and a few almonds for a weekend breakfast. I used to have this when I was pregnant as a way of getting prunes and linseed down me to combat the side effects of iron tablets -don't ask!

    Muesli Soda Bread Scroll down the page a bit.

    You may find that if you mixed your muesli with milk and left it overnight in the fridge it became more like a porridge and less bitty. You could try warming this up in the microwave for a minute or two to turn it into muesli porridge.

    Muesli Bread I'd try this first by reducing all the amounts by a third as it makes quite a large amount as it is.

    The most bizzarre way of eating muesli I have come across was a German student who stayed with us for 3 months a few years ago.
    She ate dry muesli for breakfast, with drinking chocolate powder. It looked disgusting.
    But....
    one day I thought I would try it...
    and...
    it's really nice!
    Very strange.

    When I staid with a family in Germany they bought blocks of chocolate (like cheese ) and then sliced it to make sandwiches. Surprizingly nice.

    Have you tried replacing the milk with fruit juice - the only thing I can bear that makes muesli palatable. And before you recoil in horror, remember that muesli contains fruit
  • Claude
    Thank you everybody! I knew I could rely on you all! Bigmuffins that recipe looks really yummy and Ted, I love the idea of muesli bread as I usually like my bread with lots of grains in.... Not sure I want to try it with OJ, but one day I might be brave enough Debt_Free_Chick!!!

    My pleasure!
    A glass of milk and piece of this (or two .. ) will set you up for the day!
    Just let it cool a while before you cut it up otherwise may crumble and you will be forced to tidy up the crumbled bits
    Hehehe!
    let us know how you get on!
    ps don't know about keeping qualities ....
  • sallypurple
    If the Muesli goes past its sell by date, or really is too nasty to eat any more you can always mix it with melted fat or lard to make bird cake.

    Excellent idea! And as I'm supposed to watch what I eat, it's a guilt free way of using it up once I've made the bread and the muesli slices! eh eh!

    I'll try these recipes at the week end as DD and I are on half-term hols and let you know how we get on!!

    what can i do with muesli??
    Hi, ive dusted off the food mixer (still packed away when i moved house 2 years ago!!) and started to dig out the cook books too. Ive taken loads and loads of advice form this chat forum, thanks a million.......now i need some help.

    I thought i had a brain wave in tescos yesterday and bought a packet of their own brand muesli, very cheap and i thought i could make some flapjacks with them...........wasnt till i got home i remembered that it is oats that are used in flap jacks (oh dear!) so ive just been to the library and got out some cook books hoping that i would find something to make from this rather large packet of muesli........errrrr.....none??? cant find a thing so i have 3 options
    1. take bag back and get a refund?
    2. eat the muesli for breakfast( really not a good option!)
    3. find something else more exciting to make with them...

    so any help with option 3 would be greatly appreciated.....thanks

    But flapjacks are made with oats - aren't they? My parents call them oatcakes.

    Sorry, just reread your post, and still can't see the problem as muesli is mainly oats too :confused:.

    Could you make muesli bars with them? I guess you could mix the muesli with warm honey then leave them to set, in the kind of way that you make rice krispie cakes by mixing hot syrup with rice krispies?
    Dont know if that'd work hey I'm a crap cook! LOL

    Could you not try using the muesli in place of oats in flapjacks anyway?

    I sometimes add a handful of muesli to crumble topping for going over fruit.
    I have the mind of a criminal genius. I keep it in the freezer next to Mother....

    Muesli mixed with a pot of yoghurt is yummy. Sometimes have this for breakfast.

    Agree with other posters tho'. I am sure muesli is just oats with fruit mixed in so could be used in flapjacks?!
