Muesli Hub

Happy Monday Everyone!

I am a self confessed muesli addict, I love the stuff, can't get enough of it for breakfast, lunch or as an after dinner treat.  However... the one thing I can't stand about muesli is the tiny little raisins/sultanas/currants that seem to overwhelm the majority of my fav mixes.  Boy oh boy was I excited when I discovered The Muesli Hub -  An online store dedicated to believing in choice.  At The Meusli Hub they believe that this notion of choice should start in the breakfast bowl.

Bespoke breakfasts?  I couldn't think of anything better, so off I went to find my perfect mix.


Working out at around $1.60 per serve for the 500g mix or $1.35 per serve for the 1kg mix this is an extremely cost effective way to start the day.  With most cafes charging around 10 times that amount for a custom blend you can enjoy a tasty and nutritious breakfast in the comfort of your own home for a fraction of the price.


Here you are given 8 different choices of bases, Bircher, Dry Roasted, Gluten Free, High Fibre, Lightly Honey Roasted, Superfoods, The Classic and Warming Porridge - I went for Dry Roasted, perfect for those chilly Autumn mornings!

For more information on each product you simply click on the image and a little pop up tab opens with a blurb about each base including nutritional information - perfect for those who are trying to meet certain nutritional requirements.



On the next page you are given a choice of three different nuts to go in your mix, this has be my favourite part of muesli, my mix included raw almonds, macadamia nuts and walnuts.


Muesli wouldn't be complete without an assortment of dried fruit, here you are given a selection of 16 different types of fruits and berries that you can add to your mix, I went a little tropical here and selected coconut, mango and blueberries for an Vitamin C boost.


Add a little nutrition to your mix with the addition of seeds and/or grains, choose from Chia, Linseeds, LSA, Poppy Seeds, Psyllium Husk, Puffed Amaranth, Pumpkin Seeds, Quinoa, Sesame Seeds and Sunflower Seeds.  My favourites here were Sunflower seeds and Chia Seeds. 


Indulge your sweet tooth by adding a little extra to your mix.  There are even a couple of freebies such as cinnamon or Himalayan rock salt as well as Black & Greens dark chocolate, Black & Greens milk chocolate, Whittakers Peanut Slab, freeze dried mandarin, freeze dried raspberries, yoghurt covered cranberries and yoghurt covered raisins.  These treats can be added to your mix for an additional charge ranging from $2.00 to $3.00. 

And there you have it, enter your details and your done! 
I have to add in there that the customer service is amazing!  I received my order confirmation email on Wednesday 20 August at 5.10pm and at 6.30pm I received a follow up email to say that my muesli had been crafted and was with Courier Post, they also supplied a tracking number.  My order arrived Friday morning!
This website and concept is amazing, the site is so easy to navigate and I had a blast creating my mix.  They say that the proof is in the pudding, well, I sneaked in a bowl last night after dinner and let me tell you it was amazing, full of all the flavours and textures that I love.
So if you, like me love muesli but always find yourself wishing there was a way to have a blend perfectly suited to you without the hassle of buying all the ingredients and making it yourself you have to go and check out The Muesli Hub - trust me, you won't be disappointed!
