Tag, you’re it: Holiday gifts from our kitchen to yours

Need ideas for quick and tasty gifts? There’s something special about receiving a present straight from a friend’s kitchen. We suggest two of our favorite crunchy treats — one sweet, one spicy. Having trouble deciding? Make both!

Our favorite granola recipe has just the right amount of maple syrup, crunchy nuts and tart dried cherries. It’s great for breakfast with yogurt, or any time of day for a delicious snack.

And, the lightly spiced pepitas are perfect as is, or sprinkled on soups and salads.

So good, you’ll want to make a few extra batches so you can keep some for yourself. Once your tasty treats are made and cool, divide into jars and decorate with twine or ribbon.

And to make it easy for you, we have designed our own gift tags with recipe included. Just download, print, cut them out and attach to your gift. • Our favorite granola [PDF]. • Spiced pepitas [PDF].

Happy holidays from the Food for Health team!
