Hello lovelies, today I have another quick and easy recipe for you: apple muesli buns. You only need a simple basic yeast dough and then add a muesli of your choice to the dough, or just oats, grated apple and cinnamon. The buns are super delicious served warm for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.

They become very fluffy and moist from the apple. Of course you can also add raisins, cranberries or chocolate. I baked the buns in a muffin tin, so they kept their nice shape.

  • Baking oven
  • Muffin tray (optional)


  • 300 ml (1 1/3 cups) (1 1/3 cups) plant-based milk e.g. soy or oat
  • 10 gr (0.4 oz.) fresh yeast 
  • 2 Tbsp sugar e.g. coconut blossom sugar
  • 500 gr (4 cups) flour e.g. wheat, spelt or a mixture of both
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp lant-based yogurt 
  • 100 gr (3/4 cup) muesli or oats
  • 2 apples small
  • 1 spritzer lemon juice
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-2 Tbsp bright jam or cream for coating


  • Slightly warm up the milk (lukewarm)
  • Stir in yeast and sugar until everything is dissolved 
  • Add flour, salt and yogurt and let the dough rise at a warm spot until the size has doubled (approx. 1-2 hours)
  • Wash and grate the apples and squirt some lemon juice on them
  • Add apples, cereal/oatmeal and cinnamon to the dough and knead together
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (356°F)
  • Slightly grease a muffin tray, separate the dough in 12 pieces, shape them round and place them into the muffin tray (if you don’t have a muffin tray, place these 12 rolls onto a baking tray
  • Let them rise once more for 15-20 minutes covered with a dish cloth 
  • Coat them with cream or jam and bake them for 20-25 minutes 

You can try out different flour types and also use a wholemeal flour, the buns will then be less airy, but still just as tasty. I think it's also a great way to use up muesli leftovers.

We found the buns particularly delicious fresh from the oven with vegan butter and jam! Especially the kids were overjoyed and told me that I should bake them again soon. The muesli buns are also good for a picnic or an afternoon snack.


Apfel Müsli Brötchen

As you can see in the pictures, I had a muesli with pieces of strawberry. You can really vary as you like and see what tastes good and needs to be used up. But even fine oats works just well.
