Every Morning Our Breakfast at Redwoods

Abbey Cooks

Every morning, our breakfast at Redwoods Abbey includes homemade granola, yogurt, breads, butter, homemade jams, and of course a jar or two of creamed honey. Try some honey with peanut butter on top of the granola. It's great! Honey on toast is good too - especially if it is buttered first!
