Every year, I always seem to find myself scrambling last minute to finish all of my Christmas shopping. One day I will learn not to procrastinate ;). Until then, I depend on easy last minute recipes that also make great gifts, like this gingerbread granola. Put it in a mason jar, and tie it up with string and a gift tag and you’ve got a delicious gift in no time!
