Earlier this week I made my own homemade granola! I figured since I had all the right ingredients, why buy it at the grocery store?

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast is some old-fashion muesli cereal. While I do enjoy the occasional bowl of oatmeal for breakfast, I am more of a cold cereal person so muesli is the perfect match! So what is muesli you ask?
