Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix Recipe + 99 More DIY Food Gifts for the Holidays>

I think it is safe to say we have officially entered last minute territory when it comes to Christmas gifts. If you still have shopping to do, you better do it soon! And oh, it will be awful. There will be lines. Screaming children. The things you need to buy will be sold out.

But there is another way! You can make your own gifts. Everyone loves a homemade gift! (Well, maybe kids don’t. If you give your kids jars of Meyer lemon marmalade for Christmas, it will probably be something they tell their therapist about 20 years from now. Don’t give your kids homemade marmalade for Christmas.) And guess what? I have 100 DIY food gifts for the holidays in this post.

Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix in a Jar>

One hundred! Starting with my own food gift idea, a Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Pancake Mix in a jar. This mix is easy to make, reasonably healthy, and the addition of mini chocolate chips makes it a crowd pleaser too. Pack it in mason jars, print out the labels below, and package it up with a bottle of maple syrup. And then instead of going to the mall, you can chill out at home in your pajamas and watch Shahs of Sunset marathons while assembling your awesome homemade pancake mix gifts.
