School breaks for the holidays this Friday and Chelsea wants to make sure she has presents for all of her teachers (as well as Santa, each of the reindeer and everyone on our street for that matter). Homemade cookie mixes are a gift that gets used, and the gingerbread flavours included in this mix make it perfect for Christmas giving.

Along with this delicious recipe, Nature’s Path has provided me with a box of their cereals ($50 ARV) to give away to one lucky Canadian reader. To enter, leave a comment below letting me know if you’ve given homemade gifts in the past and how you feel about receiving them. A winner will be randomly drawn on Friday, December 19th at 9 PM AST.
I gotta say, I had to stop myself from eating the Love Crunch as is to have some left to actually bake with, but if you’d like more recipes, Nature’s Path has all kinds of #FeelGoodHoliday recipes on their website.
