Muesli Biscuits

My children, especially my boy, love these muesli biscuits or cookies. They are really crisp with some soft spots here and there, crunchy as well due to the nuts, sweet and wholesome.

The only problem is, when you taste them, you cannot stop after eating one or two, so you’d better just take one or two out of the box, then put the box away so you’re not immediately tempted again.

And if you like this kind of cookie, you should definitely try the Cranberry Oatmeal Walnut Cookies. Or the Peanut Butter Cookies with Peanuts.

Muesli Cookies

What do you need?

  • Usual cookie ingredients like unsalted butter, egg, flour, sugar. The sugar should be brown, but if all you have is white, that’s fine as well.
  • Then you will need unsweetened crunchy peanut butter, rolled oats, raisins or cranberries or a mixture of the two, and some walnuts.

How to make?

Like most cookie recipe, these muesli biscuits are super easy to make as well.

  • Cream the butter and the sugar. Brown sugar is generally grittier than white sugar, so don’t expect a super smooth mixture. Do your best by mixing for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add peanut butter. Stir well, add the egg. Beat everything together for one more minute.
  • Mix and sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt and stir into the butter mixture.
  • Add oats, raisins (or cranberries), and walnuts.
  • Drop rounded tablespoons of the mixture onto the baking sheet and press lightly with a spoon to form circles.
  • Bake about 15 minutes until lightly colored. Let rest on the tray for 5 minutes, transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.

Tips for making muesli biscuits

Always use a digital kitchen scale (Amazon affiliate link) when measuring the ingredients, especially flour and butter. Cup measuring is not reliable enough, not even when making cookies.

The cookies also make a great gift, just wrap them in festive foil, or place them in a nice box and take them with you. The receiver will definitely be glad you did.
