Homemade Cinnamon and spice granola is made with fresh and wholesome ingredients, it’s the perfect homemade gift for this festive time of year.
Sometimes the best gifts are the homemade kind, especially when they are edible. Everybody eats, so you really can’t go wrong with food 🙂 . And that’s what #SundaySupper is up to this week – edible holiday gifts. I used to make trays of sugary candies for holiday gifts until I kicked the refined sugar habit. Now my homemade gifts are made with wholesome ingredients like this granola.
Homemade granola tops any store bought granola by far. It’s fresher tasting and much lower in sugar and it’s natural sugar. It’s so easy to make and the combination of ingredients that you can use are endless. Sometimes I make a savory granola, but this recipe is my favorite for the the holidays. It’s flavored with nutmeg, cinnamon and ginger, or what my family calls the Christmas spices. Granola tastes great as a snack right out of the jar or sprinkled over yogurt.
