This week, Michelle of Bad Girl Baking chose Granola Grabbers (you can find the recipe on her blog) for Tuesdays with Dorie. I left out the wheat germ, raisins, and the coconut, and just added a bit more peanuts. Oh, and chocolate chips. One must NOT forget to add chocolate chips. Or some chocolate chunks, or chocolate-covered something or others. I love cookies, but don’t like baking them, so adding a bit of chocolate helps alleviate the angst.
These surprised me – I wasn’t sure what the granola would make them taste like, but in the end they tasted like a chocolate and peanut oatmeal cookie, and what’s not to like about that? They are sweet, but no more than a chocolate chip cookie. Be sure to check out Tuesdays with Dorie to see how others faired with the recipe. I had not made cookies since Christmas, when I baked about 20 different kinds, and triggered a major case of cookie-baking burnout. It was nice to make a batch again, and take a break from my bread baking experiments. Thank you, Michelle, for the great pick!
