DIY Gift Idea: Brownies In A Jar (Vegan, Gluten Free, Gift Idea)

Father’s Day is around the corner and if you are looking for a DIY gift, look no further! I think this DIY brownies in a jar is a great gift for your dad and you will probably already have the ingredients to make it in your pantry. And all your dad will need to add to this brownie mix is some ripe banana/apple purée, peanut butter, oil and milk! And if your dad (like mine) can barely cook rice for himself, you can make these brownies for him 😊 And if your dad is not into brownies, you can try some other DIY gifts here 🎁

I hope you enjoy this gift idea as much as I have.
