A good Edible gift to give is certainly home made Granola
It is crisp and tasty, and its chocolate flavor and bitterness candied give a very good balance. I serve on a Mediterranean yogurt. You can keep several weeks in an airtight jar. I use my big mason jars and I securely sealed guards in the pantry.
