7 Homemade Holiday Food Gifts
Whether you have already finished your holiday shopping (yes, I know a few people that have and no, I am definitely not one of them!) hopefully these seven homemade gift ideas can help you with that list or become a treat you give yourself. (Also, for more ideas, check out these 21 Foodie Gifts that Give Back – a list I compiled a few years ago – all gifts are tied to charities.)
Cooking Light’s Cranberry Lemon Curd
If there’s anyone on your gift list who likes lemon curd, they will adore this. While a tart fruit curd traditionally goes with scones and tea, I’ve spooned it into yogurt, spread it over whole-grain toast and have swirled it into oatmeal – divine!
Rich Hot Cocoa Mix
Not only is this delicious as a cocoa mix, I like to add a spoonful to morning coffee to make a mocha coffee.
These are a delicious treat by themselves but equally delicious when tossed into salads, whole grain dishes or paired with tuna salad.
Peanut Butter Popcorn Crunch
Leave this protein and fiber-rich snack out for Santa instead of cookies!
Sweet Ginger Pear and Apple Chips
My dietitian business partner Serena likes to put these into a mason jar and give them as teacher gifts. Here’s her Facebook Live demonstrating how to make them.)
Homemade Whole Wheat Baking Mix
A great swap for Bisquick, you can use this mix for pancakes, waffles, scones, muffins…the list goes on!
