Handmade Holidays: Cranberry Almond Granola

Got a foodie friend on your shopping list? Give the gift of homemade granola!

Let’s be honest here, you guys. Granola might have a health food rep, but it’s really glorified candy. And what’s a better holiday gift for a food lover than a homemade sweet treat? Homemade granola is so much tastier – and healthier! – than most store-bought varieties. If you’ve ever checked the label on commercial granola, it’s full of polysyllabic ingredients, preservatives, and most likely high fructose corn syrup. No, thank you!

Just like with anything else you’re making yourself, when you make granola from scratch, you can control what goes in and how those ingredients are sourced. You can choose all organic ingredients, for example, or hit the local farmers market in search of locally-grown oats.

This yummy granola recipe makes a great gift packaged in a mason jar, and we’ve even created a printable recipe card, so you can include the recipe with your gift, if you want!
