Muesli Sesame Cookies Recipe

Muesli sesame cookies
Muesli is good for you so I thought why not turn it into cookies and you can have them guilt free. Of course it does not work that way since sugar and butter join the cookie party. Nevertheless at least a large part of the cookie is healthy, and the whole part is delicious!

These muesli sesame cookies turn out to be very crispy and light. 

If you are not a fan of sesame seeds, you can try to change your taste. If that does not work, then you can replace the sesame with either extra coconut or muesli.

The amount of sugar depends on whether the muesli is sweetened (with sugar or dried fruits) or is unsweetened.

I used half butter and half vegetable oil and the result was great. 

¾ cup flour
¾ cup muesli
¼ cup sesame seeds
¾ cup desiccated coconut
¼ - ½ cup sugar (use less if the muesli is sweetened with sugar or dried fruits)
1 teaspoon baking powder
110 grams butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

1. Cream butter and sugar until the mixture turns pale
2. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix well
3. Add shifted flour and baking powder and incorporate
4. Fold in coconut, muesli and sesame seeds
5. Place balls of dough on a greased baking tray, flatten with a fork and bake at 180C until golden brown and delicious, about 12-14 minutes.


  1. Well, trust you to turn an already good thing (muesli) into something even better (cookies)! I liked that you cut down the amount of butter in this recipe.

  2. These sound really good, I would love to have them as a healthy afternoon snack!

  3. Beautiful! What a perfect combination of ingredients. Yummy.



  4. The cookies look absolutely perfect! Gorgeous. and made with my favorite ingredients... Gorgeous recipe... Thanks for sharing!
