Cookie Recipe # 114 - Mini Morsel Granola Cookies
A chewy delight made up of mini chocolate chips, raisins, and granola with a hint of cinnamon will give you that burst of energy needed to get through the day. You can use any granola you desire; I used Special K Low Fat Granola in mine.
Ingredients: 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons baking powder, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 cup butter, softened, 1 1/4 cups firmly packed brown sugar, 2 eggs, 2 cups mini chocolate chips, 2 cups granola cereal, 1 cup raisins.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In small bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon; set aside. In large mixing bowl, beat butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Gradually mix in flour mixture. By hand, stir in chocolate chips, granola, and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets
Bake 9-11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let stand on baking sheet for a minute or two before transferring to cooling racks.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
