5 Easy Recipes for Healthy, Homemade Gifts

By: Stacy Fraser
Make-ahead or last minute, these recipes are sure to please everyone on your holiday gift list.
Every year, my mother, my sisters and I made dozens and dozens of cookies to fill our famous holiday tins. Now I live too far away to bake with my family, but I still love the idea of giving homemade, edible gifts. This year, I’ll be making big batches of Blueberry-Pecan Pancake Mix, crunchy Maple-Nut Granola and savory spice rubs for my friends and family. And in the spirit of keeping my holidays “green,” I’m skipping the wrapping paper and packaging the gifts in reusable containers with a ribbon and simple gift tag with the recipe printed on it. I hope these recipes inspire you to start your own tradition of homemade gifts from your kitchen.
