  7. Store in an airtight container.
Recipe Notes

The muesli will seem quite "soft" when it comes out of the oven, but don't worry, it will become much crispier as it cools!

Vegan option: replace butter with coconut oil

Dairy free option: replace butter with coconut oil

Nut free option: remove nuts, and replace with extra 1/2 cup seeds, 1 cup oats and 1/2 cup oat flakes.

Low FODMAP option: remove dried fruit and replace with additional 1/2 cup nuts and 1/2 cup oats.  Ensure you choose low FODMAP nuts such as macadamias, pecans and walnuts.  Replace honey with additional maple syrup or use golden syrup instead.
