Apple Cinnamon Granola Cookies

READY IN: 27mins
Recipe by Pajene

I love baking and experimenting with recipes. A couple of nights ago I had purchased some granola on sale at the store and wondered if I could substitute it for oatmeal. After viewing several recipes for oatmeal cookies, I decided just to put together something myself. The result? Well, lets just say my husband LOVES them!

Followed your recipe right on down, to & including the almonds! I did, however, make them pretty big & got 26 cookies, but that in no way detracted from their great taste! Absolutely wonderful, & we thought they made delicious breakfast cookies! Thanks for the keeper recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this fall's round of Pick A Chef]
