Homemade Granola

Homemade granola is a great alternative to giving cookies. I recommend this recipe for Maple-Almond Granola from I have made it for years as a gift and have had family members ask for more! Its really easy to make and not too sweet so you may want to add some brown sugar if you prefer a sweeter granola.

I like to give some homemade whole grain pancake mix along with some blueberry syrup made from our own blueberry bushes.
