Microwave Granola plus Gifts from the Kitchen

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

As promised I have a healthy recipe for you today after “Sweet Treat Week”.  This one is so simple.  It’s a granola recipe that you can make in you microwave.  This microwave granola is a recipe I got from a lady that lives by my mom.  You have no excuse now for not making homemade granola.  If you can measure up the ingredients, stir,  and push some buttons on the microwave, then you can make this.  I made a few changes to the original recipe.  It was easy to make and so yummy.

Now if you want to go all out and make granola in you regular oven I have a great recipe in my archives.  It’s my mom’s granola recipe.  I also included a bonus recipe for you.  It’s another granola recipe. This is a recipe from one of my dear friends who also happens to be my next door neighbor.  She is very good at eating healthy and makes this granola all the time.  It is also very yummy.

Then I have several ideas for you to make gifts from the kitchen.  It’s getting closer to Christmas and some of these ideas may just be the perfect solution for those people still on your list.  I have also included a picture below of a way you could package up any of the granola recipe I have shared.  Granola is a great gift from the kitchen.  I love to use cellophane bags and ziploc type storage container (that you can get at the grocery store) to help package up my gifts. 

Several of these ideas are more on the healthy side and will be well appreciated after plates of goodies.

Here’s a picture of how to wrap up the granola.  One recipe of the microwave granola will almost fill a 42 oz. oats container.  I use the empty oats containers and wrap them in wrapping paper and tie a ribbon around the container.  So easy!

Here is a picture of the containers I like to use for gifts from the kitchen.  It cost about $2.50 or a package that comes with 2 or 3 containers, depending on the size you get.  I have also been able to find similar containers at the dollar store.
