DIY edible gift

This year, try giving the gift of an easy breakfast. DIY edible gifts are a great way to spread holiday cheer to friends, family, and co-workers. Making a big batch of granola is less expensive than buying individual gifts for large groups, and it’s practically guaranteed to be something the recipient will use. Our granola recipes are easy to prepare and package for holiday gift exchanges. 

How to make a DIY edible gift 

To get started, choose your recipe. For inspiration, check out some of our favorite homemade granola recipes. 

Recipe: Cocoa & Maple Granola with Coconut Chips & Dried Cherries

Perfect for snacking or sprinkling onto yogurt, this crunchy granola features rolled oats tossed with coconut chips, maple syrup, cocoa powder, and warming spices like cinnamon and cardamom. We’re toasting it in the oven until delightfully crisp, then finishing it off with chewy bites of dried tart cherries

Recipe: Homemade Granola Bowls with Greek Yogurt & Blueberries

This crunchy granola features rolled oats tossed with coconut flakes, almonds, and warming spices like cinnamon.

Recipe: Homemade Granola with Cardamom & Chia Seeds

This granola recipe gets a nutritional boost from buckwheat groats and chia seeds. Cardamon, maple syrup, and coconut flakes create a slightly sweet & beautifully aromatic flavor profile. 

After your granola has been prepared and cooled, it’s time to pack it up. Divide the granola into portion. We recommend giving 2-4 serving to each person, depending on how many people are in their household. 

Package your granola in clear cellophane bags or mason jars and decorate to your liking. You can close bags with ribbon curls, cover mason jar tops with decorative fabric, or even attach homemade cards. For bonus points, add some serving suggestions to your card. We love sprinkling granola over greek yogurt, or just eating it straight as a snack.
