When I first read the title for these cookies, I imagined them to be like the locally-made bars wrapped in plastic with homemade stickers I buy from a little basket near the register at my health-food store. They are thick and yummy and full of healthy sounding ingredients.
I was a little disappointed when I discovered that this week’s Sweet Melissa Sundays recipe selection–the Granola Breakfast Cookies– were drop cookies not bars. But that’s where the disappointment ended. These cookies are made with whole-wheat flour and Cherry-Almond Granola (which I blogged about on Friday) and are absolutely delicious. And I made them as bar cookies to be more like my health food store bard. So everything is right in the world.
Thank you to Jessica of A Singleton in the Kitchen for selecting these cookies. They were a big hit at work. Everyone gobbled them up. Please visit her blog, not only for the recipe, but because it truly is a great blog.
