(Or whatever fruits you decide. This is a picture of my "Easter Granola" I had dried papaya, pineapple, cherries, figs and salted peanuts)To Vary: Use black walnut or other flavors of extracts. Try different nuts and/or sunflower seeds. Add 1/2 cup carob powder to oats or add some wheat germ & bran, increasing the honey too.My Easter Jars:
I added papaya, pineapple and cherries to the mix
I cut out squares of remnant fabrics to use for the bags on top.
I bought 1 bag of green plastic grass
Assorted candies and placed in those 1/2 baggies you can buy at the store.
Colored thin stripped ribbon and fancy Easter color ribbon thicker.
Stickers for jars to write Happy Easter on.The fabric is up under the lid and then the lid is screwed on to hold fabric in place.
Here is how I placed the candies on the jar and then tied the fabric up around it.Here are my completed jars of Easter Granola and a little chocolate goodies on top.
