This is a better version of a granola cookie recipe. It uses Sucanat (an unrefined sweetener--you can find it at Wegmans or at health food stores) and Hemp Plus granola, which is a lighter granola with puffs in it, and flaxseed. (Don't worry, it's safe to eat, even for children). These cook up light and airy, and taste heavenly. Note: they're a little less healthy if you eat the whole batch...*burp*

the kids and me loved these! Granola and PB are two of our favorite things, so I was really happy to find a recipe that combined both. We vegan-ized them by subbing coconut butter and vegan margarine for the butter and flax seeds for the eggs. Perfect!

Definitely light, airy, and heavenly! These are soooo good! I used my own homemade granola and smooth peanut butter along with the sucanat and whole wheat pastry flour that I ground myself. I didn't sift it, and apparently there was no need to. They had a wonderful texture. This cookie could vary depending on what is in your granola - coconut, various nuts, cranberries, etc. As my family says about a new recipe that is great, "It's a keeper!"
