The big holiday is just couple of days away. Hows the holiday shopping coming along? If you are still on the search for some simple last minute gifts for neighbors and friends, here’s a roundup of my favorite edible gifts from the blog. Package these in a mason jar or a simple favor bag with a colorful fabric circle, gift tag and a holiday ribbon or bow, you’ve got a darling gift that’s perfect for a teacher, neighbor or friend.
Honey Hazelnut Granola– Your friends will become your best friends if you gift them this crunchy, flavorful, homemade gourmet treat. Veganize this recipe by substituting maple syrup for honey.
Chili-Lime Peanuts– This humble peanut recipe is simple to make but big on flavor and very addictive.
Lavender Shortbread Cookies– This crumbly, melt-in-your mouth cookie is a fragrant variation to the traditional Christmas cookie.
Fran’s Gold Bar Brownies– They ooze with chocolate and caramel in every bite and are sure to make any occasion a special one.
Chai Spiced Banana Bread– Everyone loves a good banana bread and when you thrown in some chai spice, you are sure to spread warmth and cheer.
Almond Raisin Granola Clusters– There can never be too much granola in one’s life. This is perfect for the day after Christmas breakfast alongside some Greek yogurt and fruit.
Cake Pops– These are a great alternative to cookies. Make merry this holiday season by dipping, swirling and playing around with toppings.
Pumpkin Mascarpone Cake Bites– A perfect, almost cheesecake like gift for a special friend or neighbor.
Peppermint Scones– A festive touch to good old scones, sure to be a big hit.
Popped Sorghum – Popcorn doesn’t always have to be about corn, pop this ancient grain and play around with flavors. I am sure sorghum won’t mind a little caramel, cinnamon or cheddar.
