Veggy Malta checks out: Bjorg Organic Muesli Cereal (no-bake recipe included!)

by Ramona Debono

A pioneer and leader in organic food in France since 1988, Bjorg is more than simply organic oriented. Their innovation and expertise in different product categories, enable us consumers to eat an organic, healthy and varied diet.

The main ingredient in Bjorg’s muesli cereal range is the wholegrain. Wholegrain cereals are a rich source of many essential vitamins, minerals and a good source of antioxidants and phytochemicals (compounds found in plants) that can help lower blood cholesterol levels. In fact, one would notice a lot of oat flakes in Bjorg’s muesli!

Fun fact: muesli is typically served raw without any processing or baking, so you could say that muesli is like the natural form of granola.

Depending on the type of cereal or muesli, one would immediately notice that there is little to no added sugar. The only sugar present in the fruit-flavoured muesli is the naturally occurring sugars in freeze-dried fruit and the vegetarian-friendly chocolate flavoured muesli only has 9 grams of sugar per 100g of product!

Us at Veggy Malta feel that Bjorg’s muesli cereal is well-balanced in terms of taste and nutritional profile. The lack of added sugar and oily additives give the ingredients the opportunity to shine without compromising taste. In fact one can feel the efforts made to naturally keep the taste of the fruits and nuts with every bite!

You don’t necessarily need to eat Bjorg’s muesli cereal in a bowl with just milk; why not try these no-bake muesli bites?! These are perfect for summer as no baking is required plus you only need a handful of simple ingredients. Please feel free to substitute according to your tastes – swap almond butter for peanut butter, add in more nuts instead of just seeds and you can also throw in any dried fruit you have in your pantry. These bites are the perfect sweet snack/treat that give you all the energy you need on these hot summer days.
