No Spoon Required


I love it when health food and junk food collide, as in this this week's TWD- Granola Grabbers. They are chock full of whole grains and fiber but come in a fabulous and convenient cookie form!


I used almond coconut granola, whole wheat flour, and less sugar than the recipe called for- that's the healthy part. But then... I added semisweet chocolate chips and sweetened flaked coconut to bring out their "cookie-ness." They came out great, the perfect combination of crunchy and gooey, sweet and salty, good taste and good for you!

I loved all the textures too! I do want to try some "flavored" granola like you used! I think that would pump up these cookies even more :)
