As promised: Granola Grabbers...

Who is Michelle of Bad Girl Baking? Doesn't matter. I love her. She chose Granola Grabbers from Baking from My Home to Yours for this week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD). It just so happened that I pretty much had every. single. ingredient. For the week I decide to plunge back into TWD. So here's a shout out to Michelle for that. I know she didn't have me in mind, but...

And to top it off? I felt like supermom making home-baked cookies the day before the first day of school. I AM supermom.

On to the matter at hand and the diversions: my granola had cranberries in it. I had bulgur wheat but not wheat germ...And not quite enough of the Udi's granola, so I finished it with a Kirkland (a.k.a. Costco) cereal...They are baking even as I type, so let's see how all THAT goes.

The cookies went together quickly (thanks again, Bad Girl)--I needed this slide back into the routine, and this made it easy...I rotated the trays just like Dorie says...one thing I've learned from this baking is to NOT OVERMIX. In most of the recipes, Dorie warns against it, and following her advice, most of my "experiments" have turned out so delicate...I digress.

Here the cookies are just out of the oven...
and here they are all ready to be enjoyed...

What's not to love about homemade cookies? Go be a supermom. Make these Granola Grabbers...

I adore homemade cookies that require you to chew. These look wonderful.

I see you've paired them with milk, but I think ice cream would be a good side, no? Might as well make that ice cream maker earn its freezer space.
