Six Tasty DIY Christmas Gifts


Christmas Cookies

It’s the time of year when many offices have a gift exchange or secret Santa. Or maybe you want to share a little Christmas spirit with your friends or neighbors. It may be tempting to grab candy or a treat from the store, but imagine how much they would appreciate a homemade gift. We’ve compiled some of our favorite goodies that would fit perfectly in a plastic treat bag or mason jar tied with Christmas ribbon for easy gifting this holiday season.

Artisan Cheese Crackers - These savory morsels are gluten free, perfect for those with celiac disease or gluten intolerance, and have cheesy goodness in every bite. Perfect for snacking, they will easily fit in a holiday gift container and don’t need any refrigeration or special storage.

Banana Bread - Baked goods are always popular holiday gifts. This banana bread recipe features sorghum flour and could be baked in miniature loaf tins for small, individually wrapped goodies to set on every desk at work or to deliver to your neighbors.

Lemon Cake Bites - Dusted with powdered sugar, these individual tasty treats are made perfectly round in a cake pop maker. Three or four little bites can fill a treat container for a bright, zingy gift!

Baking Mix - Not great at making Pinterest-worthy baked treats? How about gifting a mason jar layered with the ingredients for the recipient to be the chef! Try it with these Oatmeal Coconut-Cardamom Cookies with White Chocolate Chips. Fill the jar with the dry ingredients and print out a simple tag with the recipe. Hot glue three black buttons down the front of the jar and tie a ribbon around the top for a snowman-inspired gift. Easy peasy!

Chocolate Almond Sorghum Poppers - Chocolates are a traditional holiday gift favorite. Integrating popped sorghum is a fun way to mix up these sweet treats. They also feature sweet dates, your favorite holiday nut, like walnuts or pecans, and tasty peanut butter. Package a handful in a festive treat bag and share the love!

Spiced Sorghum Cookies with Cranberry Glaze - These Christmas holiday cookies are a new classic. Personalize them with festive decorations, and let your little ones join in on the gift-giving fun this year. We’d love to see your finished Christmas gifts!
