Tis the Seaon


When we can, we love to give handmade gifts to my son's teachers...who also happen to be my co-workers.

This year we decided to make edible gifts.

I really enjoy sharing our healthy treats...people NEVER know they have no wheat, eggs, dairy, peanuts, or refined sugars. They always think they are splurging and don't believe that our goodies are really healthy.

These were apple spice, pan bars...from a mix we use regularly. Really easy and soooo good!

Then my son, Logan went to work on the one-of-a-kind, handmade tags. He used materials and scraps we had saved from other projects.

At a national art and craft store, we found these sweet, little, ceramic loaf pans that said "Peace" for $1 each...they were perfect and we were able to bake right in them. They will also be able to be reused and won't contribute to more holiday waste!

We slipped the cooled loaf pans into plastic bags we found in the cake decorating isle and tied them with curling ribbon.

We have already had requests for the recipe and for refills!
