TWD - Granola Grabbers

Yeah! I'm back. The neck pain is gone, school is in full swing, and I still have time to bake. This week's Tuesday recipe was Granola Grabbers, chosen by Michelle of Bad Girl Baking.
While I heard many people say these are good as after school snacks, I'm using mine bright and early in the morning. Actually, it's chilly and dark. I get up at 4:45 for my daily trip to the Y. Going that early is the only time I can have some quiet 'me time' each day. I've been eating a cookie or two (they are quite small) on my way downtown and they give me the boost I need to get my day started.
The cookies are packed with yummy things...granola, wheat germ, raisins, peanuts, almonds, and more.
Some of the cookies ended up a bit crumbly. I think the next time I make these (and there will definitely be a next time), I'll add a touch more liquid. I'll also play around with the combinations of fruit and nuts depending on what's in my cupboard...peanuts, almonds, walnuts, pecans, craisins, dried fruit...endless possibilities.
Thanks, Michelle, for a great recipe. This one will be a staple in my house.

Mine were pretty crumbly as well! But they taste wonderful, so I can deal with them falling apart a bit! Your cookies look yummy!

yeah who wants these after school? I want them to help me kick start my day! And I love that I can feel some-what less guilty about eating these early in the morning!

First of all, congrats to you on your daily trip to the Y. It's very admirable and worth it, I'm sure! The cookies look great and the possibilities are endless.

Glad that you liked them! Mine weren't crumbly at all, and it could be that I didn't add the wheat germ (I didn't have any on hand). Maybe an extra egg?
