Granola cookies

I love the smell of the fresh baked cookies, if you're like me then this one is yummy in your tummy. I have tried couple of cookies but granola cookies ware new to me. We're not a big fan of granola in our house but when saw this recipe was drooling over the picture and I wanted them right away. I was very sure my son would love it who can munch a cookie any time of the day. It's really simple (even simpler with semi-home made when u buy ready granola at a store near you which I did ;)) with few ingredients and chewy, healthy home made cookies are ready for u. 

I got almond granola mix with coconut from the bulk in one of the farmers market store. They were really yummy to eat just the way but I wanted in the form of cookies. I was a little scared it might crumble and will not get a cookie form, but it didn't happen and came perfect. Ok now let's get into the recipe and get you all baking.

3 cups Granola( the recipe calls for no fruits or nuts, but I had almond and coconut )
3/4 cup Raisins
1/2 cup peanut
1/2 cup silvered almonds( I skipped this as I already had almonds in granola)
1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut(I skipped this aswell for same reason)
1/3 cup wheat germ
7oz unsalted room temperature Butter
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup All Purpose Flour

Preheat the oven 375 degree F. Line the baking tray with parchment paper & Set aside. In a large bowl put all the dry ingredients ( granola, raisins, peanut, coconut, silvered almonds, wheat germ and give it a good mix making sure there are no lumps). In a seep rate bowl, add butter and sugars and beat with an electric mixer for about 3-4mins. With a low speed on the mixer, add all purpose flour slowly one spoon at time, so you are not covered in flour :). Stop it once it's incorporated and add granola mix to this and mix it with a spatula. 

Scoop one tablespoon of dough and make it into a ball and press a little bit and place it on the baking tray. Make the rest of them or enough to fit the baking tray.( I only bake I tray at a time and freeze the rest of the drought, so whenever I am out of cookies I bake fresh batch and use them, you can try this or bake all of them share them with friends and family). With this ingredients you can make about 2 dozen cookies.

Now bake them in the preheated oven for about 10-12 mins or until golden brown. Remove them from the tray and cool them on the rack and store them in an airtight container and enjoy some sweet treats.
