Sometimes its nice to give a baked holiday gift, but you can also gift a DIY baking kit as well. I love making these as gifts because they are easy and don’t cost very much to make. The most expensive thing in this whole DIY is the actual glass you use to store the ingredients in. For this post I used a special Christmas one, but a large mason jar works well too.

 

I got the idea to make these as DIY gifts when I was at Target and noticed the large 42oz can of Quaker Quick Oats. I remembered my recipe for oatmeal cookies is perfect for storing in an airtight jar and gifting it.

 

I got the limited edition canister of Quaker Oats that’s exclusively available at Target. There’s even a coupon for Quaker Oatmeal if you choose to pick up this limited edition winter packaging. pssst – there’s a cool oatmeal recipe tucked under the lid!

In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, salt & cinnamon and mix well. Put 3 cups of quick oats in the jar, then the flour mixture, white sugar and brown sugar, chocolate bits and seal it up.

Now it’s time to make it pretty with ribbons and last but not least – the printable. This is important because it gives you both the wet ingredients you need as well as the cooking instructions. Download the printable here – I printed mine on card stock.
