TWD: Granola Grabbers on my way out the door

August 19, 2008

This will have to be my shortest post ever.  I was late making this weeks Tuesday’s with Dorie selection, Granola Grabbers (out of granola!) and now I’m rushing out the door for a one night retreat with my grad cohort.

Quickly.  These were a hit with my kids.  They grabbed them off while cooling and gave them a thumbs up– even from my daughter who normally tells me she doesn’t like cookies with nuts in them.  I liked the almost peanut brittle flavor they have.  I wish they had a bit less sugar so I could feed them to my kids kind of like a granola bar– but I might mess around with the recipe in the next couple weeks.  These would be awesome for the lunchbox!

I especially like these cookies because my end product looked a lot like Dorie’s picture!

Check out more (longer) postings on the recipe at Tuesdays with Dorie.  I’m off to recharge before my semester starts next week!

    Don’t you love it when they turn out like the picture? That doesn’t happen nearly enough…

    They look great! And I agree with the others that they look like they fell out of the cookbook. Sounds like they were a success, too.

    They do look fab. What a good idea to try and reduce the sugar for lunch box treats. Please let me know how that goes.

    Thanks for the comments! I’ll report back if I have any success on altering the recipe to reduce the sugar.
