Granola Grabbers

First- another recruit- YAY!!!!!   Please visit my friend, Cathy's, new TWD blog The Tortefeasor.  I really enjoy my friends at work being TWD members, too!!!  YAY!!!

This week's recipe was chosen by Michelle of Bad Girl Baking.  I made these last weekend because we were out of town this weekend at one of my husband's triathlons.  I bought Vanilla Almond Granola at Target to use- it was the best granola ever!!!    I was a little concerned about how little liquid held these things together- only one egg??  The batter was VERY thick, but yummy.  
These cookies surprised me- I didn't like them very much warm out-of-the-oven, which is usually how I prefer cookies.  I REALLY liked them the next day, though.  Weird!!!  I really like the raisins and coconut in these.
Also, I LOVED that the recipe gave instructions to cook ALL the cookies at the same time.  So, I only baked for about 10 minutes.  Great choice, Michelle!!

Did your husband eat these for the triathlon? I suppose they would be a great carb-boost!!

Vanilla Granola? Sound good! (Gotta love Target!)

Amanda -- I had the SAME experience re: liking the cookies better the next day! I think I'll try your granola choice next time I make these. Yours look fabulous! Thanks for recruiting me to TWD -- this is already so much fun!

That granola sounds yummy, I'm going to look for it the next time we are at Target. Hope your husband had a good triathlon!

If you can't get it at Target, I don't need it. ;)

Nice job!

You are racking up the recruits, you TWD champ. YOur cookies look so very yummy. Glad you liked them the next day. I ate mine as dough, out of the oven, and the next day. I have no control. None.

You are a recruiting *machine*. Glad you enjoyed the cookies.

I agree that these needed to sit a bit before eating. And eating. And eating.
