Granola Cookies2

There should always be time for homemade cookies!

Yum!  After I made my granola last time, I decided to experiment and came up with this great recipe for granola cookies.  They went over really well in my house.  In fact, I had made them for a trip and we almost ate them all before we left!

These do not have a lot of sugar, but are sweet because of the juice and applesauce.  This makes them a great treat for a one-year old (and 30-something year old!)

Laurie’s Granola Cookies

  • 3/4 C brown sugar
  • 1/2 C soft butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1/4 C apple juice
  • 1/2 C applesauce (unsweetened)

In a small bowl, cream together the sugar, butter and egg.  Add the vanilla, juice and apple sauce and mix well.

  • 2 C whole spelt flour
  • 1/2 t baking soda
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 2 t cinnamon
  • 2 C granola
  • 1/4 C raisins

In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.  Add the granola and raisins.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine until all of the flour is wet.  This is a tough batter, so get those biceps working!  Once combined, place 1 tablespoon of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.  Use a fork to pat down the cookies.

Bake in a 350 deg. oven for 12 minutes, until brown on the bottoms.  Let cool and enjoy!
