Tastes good and oh so healthy! I used locally grown red skinned pears and local wildflower honey. The seeds were a mixture of brown flax, golden flax and sesame seeds. Oregon-grown hazelnuts replaced walnuts. A sprinkle of cinnamon was the final touch. Be sure to cover the cereal before placing in the refrigerator or the muesli will take on other food odors! Also, I didn't think about the pears turning brown either. Maybe add a couple drops of lemon juice to the sliced pears to avoid browning...? Reviewed for Veg Tag/October.
