Why You'll Love This Recipe

Homemade granola as a gift is a great holiday treat. While most people are giving cookies, chocolates, or candy – you can be different and give homemade granola as a gift! Everyone is having brunch or enjoying breakfast together as a family during this time of year, so a healthy homemade holiday gift like this is something that everyone will enjoy.

Making homemade DIY Granola Gifts couldn’t be easier! You can use any homemade granola recipe that you like, but I am using my Vanilla Cranberry Granola recipe here. You just need some tin tie bags, ribbon, and holiday cards.

This is a fun activity to do with your kids as well. You can have kids help by using a scoop and fill up the bags with granola. Make sure to make extra granola so you can keep some for yourself too! Healthy homemade granola is a great snack to have around the house during the holidays. Which is why homemade granola as a gift is such a good idea!
