Giftable Granola

Recipe by: Noreen Wasti
Servings: ~14 ounces

"Edible gifts are always special, especially around the holidays. This giftable granola is super easy and can be scaled up to larger quantities. Made with black sesame, pistachios, and pumpkin seeds, with cardamom and maple — it’s nutty, wholesome, and delicious. We love assembling a little gift basket with a jar of granola tied up with a ribbon, a bottle of AWAKE, some winter fruit like pomegranate, citrus, and persimmon, along with a pot of thick yogurt. Happy Holidays!" - Noreen Wasti
