I never know what to get my mom for mother's day because she's picky about clothes, perfume, and accessories. And even though I myself love gift cards, I don't like to get my mom something so impersonal. So, I know she loves breakfast food, and she likes to make her own granola, so I made her some yummy, homemade granola! I am so glad I subscribe to Adrianna Adarme's food blog, A Cozy Kitchen, because a week before mother's day she posted her mother's day gift box. My goal was to make my mom a similar gift box with homemade items including granola, lip scrub, a personalized mug and a box of organic tea, but I only got as far as the granola because I'm world's biggest procrastinator (don't judge me).
I followed the recipe as posted "Nutty, Seeded, Grain-Free Granola", however I used dried cranberries and golden raisins instead of the golden berries and goji berries. It turned out just as delicious! Try it!!
