TWD: Granola Grabbers

I like cookies, I like granola, but a cookie made with granola?  whoever heard of such a thing?  could these cookies fall into that grey area of "possibly healthy cookies?"  I was intrigued and determined to find out.  Michelle of Bad Girl Baking picked this recipe for this week's Tuesdays With Dorie assignment.  I'm enjoying them, but not overly so.  P is eating one now and claims that they are "okay" with a shrug.  not exactly a ringing endorsement.  I added chocolate chips, because, well, everyone loves chocolate chips.   I should have used better granola.  I bet they would have been awesome with that Hemp Granola I like so much.  At any rate, these may be a bit healthier for you then your average cookie, but they taste that way, you know?  I am much more a proponent of healthy cookies that still taste bad for you.  Check out the baking adventures of my fellow TWDs here

lol, I almost think they were too good to be healthy! :) But I guess your right!

I agree.. they were just ok, but maybe next time I'll try it out with real granola since i just used oatmeal

healthy but with almost 2 sticks of butter! i don't want to think about that part. too bad y'all don't like them so much, even with chocolate chips, but you can't win them all.

Healthy but they taste bad for you? When you find a recipe like that, please let me know! Sorry you weren't a huge fan.

I was surprised that I enjoyed these as much as I did. Considering how many I've eaten, I have pretty much negated any health factor! :o)
