Simple Yet Beautiful Homemade Granola Gift Basket!

A Simple Granola Gift Basket from Elisabeth & Butter

Nothing says thoughtful more than a homemade gift. Today I am thrilled to have baking blogger, Elisabeth Farris, from the popular Elisabeth and Butter blog share a beautiful, yet simple homemade granola gift basket that’s perfect to take a new neighbor, a new mama, or just someone who needs a little encouragement!

Hi there! My name is Elisabeth Farris and I run a baking blog called Elisabeth and Butter where I make all things sweet. Baking can be very intimidating to some people so I love making recipes that inspire others to get in the kitchen and try something new without being difficult. I’m all about simple, yet delicious food!
My husband and I recently moved into our new home and I was blown away by all of our sweet friends and neighbors who made us feel so loved and welcomed. I never knew how much a housewarming/hostess gift really meant until I was on the receiving end and I was so overwhelmed with all the kindness! Our friends brought beautiful cheese boards, bottles of wine and champagne, house plants and even monogrammed towels. We were so grateful!
I love bringing homemade gifts whenever I go visit someone or when someone moves into a new home. Homemade granola is usually my go-to because it’s so simple to make and stays fresh for up to 2 weeks. You can add whatever dried fruits or nuts that you have on hand and throw it all together. For this recipe, I added sliced almonds and freeze dried blueberries which go so well together.
I wrapped the granola in a clear cellophane bag and placed it in a simple straw basket with a pretty kitchen towel (more here) and honey stirrer. It makes the perfect gift for any occasion!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine oats, almonds, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
  3. In a small saucepan, melt butter, maple syrup and honey together until combined. Pour wet ingredients into the bowl of oats and stir to combine and until all the oats are covered.
  4. Spread the granola on the baking sheet in an even layer and bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway. Remove from oven and leave the granola untouched for 30 minutes so it will set up and form clumps. Add in freeze dried blueberries and gently mix in. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for a few months. Enjoy!
