TWD Rewind: Granola Grabbers


This week Tuesdays With Dorie has a Rewind week, which means we could choose any previously chosen recipe. We were also later told we had permission to post later in the week, in order to bake for Thanksgiving. I had already baked and photographed my selection by the time this announcement was made (and had my Thanksgiving desserts planned). I hadn’t written my post, though, and was happy to have one less thing on my to-do list before the holiday break started.
The recipe I selected was Granola Grabbers! Not very seasonal (the photo in the book shouts back-to-school fall recipe), but I had wanted to try these cookies forever. I hadn’t because I knew that this is exactly the type of cookie I love and that Josh “forgets” about and I try to not be the one who consumes the majority of the cookies in this house. In fact, as I was making them, I tried to think of another name that did not involve the world granola that might make them sound more enticing. I didn’t come up with anything. And I was totally right: I have eaten way more of them.

These cookies are packed not only with granola, but also additional nuts and raisins. They are pleasantly sweet and very hearty. They kind of remind me of Kellog’s granola, which I like but never buy anymore. I rated them an 8 for Deliciousness (Josh gave them a 7) and a 2 for Effort, for an EDR of 4. You can find the recipe here and visit the TWD site to see what everyone else selected this week.

Nuts and dried fruit are really my favourite ingredients to add to whatever...granola, cookies, slices..it's all good!

I always try to make things I'm baking sound as appealing as possible to Shane so I definitely know what you mean! I didn't get around to baking a TWD recipe for Thanksgiving this week but there are several I missed that are on my to-do list. The granola grabbers were from my early days with the group, and I enjoyed them, despite some skepticism since I'm not a huge granola fan :)

I've made these cookies lots of times and they are among my favorites. I use my own home-made granola so the ingredients are just what I most enjoy! I have to give them away or I would eat them all myself.

Cookies like this are great year-round! When I made them, I loved them and they were a hit at work.

Why have I not made these yet? I love granola and nuts and all that good stuff. Company is coming this week, I'll will have helpers in the eating of treats. That's just what I need!
