No sugar edible flower pot gift idea

As we were trying to think of recipes that would be totally Lars we thought it would be natural to incorporate some flowers. Of course! So Karlee and I came up with this healthy version (no sugar!) of an idea we spotted on Martha Stewart made with chocolate granola and yogurt. We thought it would be the perfect gift for mom for Mother’s Day. Just include a sweet note on the tag and you’re good to go!
