Dawn’s Muesli

In 2014 we went to New Zealand and did a whirlwind trip visiting parts of the North and South Islands. On the South Island we stayed at Dock Bay Lodge in Te Anau. A beautiful B&B that served this delicious muesli each morning at breakfast. I think this is more like a granola than a muesli since it is baked uses honey as a sweetener.

Ingredients are in NZ products, but you can find US equivalents. There are no quantities listed for many of the dry ingredients, so. you just need to eyeball it. Does it look like a granola that you’d want to eat? If you love coconut, add a lot. If you don’t, then skip it.
