“This is a very simple recipe for muesli balls. In 1989 my home town Freiburg used to be the inofficial capital of organic food in Germany, and there were four organic food stores within a diameter of 2 miles around the place where I lived. In one of them I found a small booklet, handwritten and photocopied on brown packaging paper, entitled "Our little cake heaven. Baking recipes". The publisher was something called "packaging paper mail orders", and they turned out to be a group of very radical environmental activists. This is their website: The recipes they publish in their packaging paper booklets are organic, whole food, and mostly very yummy - which was quite rare in the beginnings of the organic food movement when whole grain recipes used to be healthy but unedible ;-)”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine all dry ingredients with the honey.
  2. Mix in the milk - but slowly. The required amount may be a little more or less than 1 1/2 cups to get a sticky dough.
  3. Let the dough rest 30 minutes, then preheat oven to 390 degrees and form walnut size balls. If the dough is too sticky to form balls, add some more ground hazelnuts.
  4. Bake for about 20-25 minutes until balls are golden brown.
