I’m new to having kids in school, and I’m still figuring out what makes a nice teacher gift, but I did see what the other kids usually bring (especially around the holidays): lots of candy and sweets. Now I enjoy those things too, but I figure teachers might get a little overloaded with treats and might also like something nice and healthy.

Which bring me to this delicious recipe for granola. A few years back, my friend Katie hosted a brunch at her home and made this granola. Even though her table was filled with delicious breakfast treats, I kept going back for more granola. It’s that delicious! And now we make it all the time. This recipe makes a big batch, so we share some with our friends and keep the rest in the fridge. Topped with a few big spoonfuls of Greek yogurt, a splash of milk, and a big pile of berries, it is the perfect breakfast.

To give this to your favorite teacher, pour some granola in a mason jar and tie a ribbon around the lid. Use this printable PDF labels to make a label you can personalize with your teacher’s name (it also includes the ingredients in case there are any allergies). I’ve been known to give these to friends on their birthdays too, and they are always well received.
