Made from scratch: honey toasted muesli

This weekend could not have been better. Sunny with a nice breeze, it was the perfect weather for dining outside, shopping at the farmer's market and planting flowers. All of which, I happily took part in while celebrating my mom! I had planned to visit a few of my favorite food blogs to find a simple granola recipe for Mother's Day Brunch. However, it's always one stop shopping when I start my search with 101 Cookbooks. I'll tell you, I can't believe I don't own this cookbook, I use Heidi's recipes on a weekly basis. Once I stumbled upon her Honey Toasted Fruit Muesli recipe, I was smitten, forget granola!

If you're local and have not yet been into the Vending Nut Co, your time is now. Unless, of course, you have a nut allergy and then your time is never. A bag of their Tours Mix makes the Muesli recipe both cheaper and easier, I replaced the nuts called for in the recipe with a few cups of this mix. Use what's leftover as a salad topper.

I ditched the dried fruit altogether, instead adding berries once I was ready to eat. My mother-in-law has me hooked on frozen blueberries in cereal. They sort of melt once immersed in liquid and keep your cereal cold, totally addictive. Also, a great muesli topper.
