This Dark Chocolate Breakfast Granola is very easy to make, healthy and a great Christmas gift for your family or friends.
Breakfast granola has a controversial reputation. It’s a delicious and beloved breakfast choice, but the prepackaged stuff contains enough processed sugar to almost call it a dessert. Sugar, in general, is bad for you and people are consuming (most of the time unknowingly) way more than the recommended daily amount.
Breakfast granola is also something you can whip up at home in no time with the benefit of being able to control your ingredients. To me, a lovely homemade granola also makes a great Christmas gift for my family and friends. It’s just a little something to express my best wishes, or thank them for their unconditional friendship. I don’t enjoy gift-shopping, nor the craziness around it the past years. In fact, I have been boycotting shopping malls in December altogether, and quite successfully, I might add. It’s convenient to just go out, swipe your credit card and buy gifts, even small ones. True it takes time as well and it can even be frustrating. But taking the time to actually make something yourself and gift wrap it yourself, even if it’s plain and far from perfect… to me, those are the best kind of gifts.
So if you’re out of gift ideas or just want a lovely homemade breakfast granola, why not try this simple recipe that takes little time or effort, but gives great results. If you’re planning to gift it the recipe yields about 3 x 1-liter jars. We recommend it with greek yogurt and some berries to top 🙂
