Tuesdays with Dorie: Granola Grabbers

Another Tuesday and another baking adventure. This week's selection was the Granola Grabber cookies chosen by Michelle of Bad Girl Baking. When I looked over the recipe I wondered how these cookies would turn out because there seemed to be a lot of dry ingredients but not many wet ones. I made no changes to the recipe, I did use granola with coconut and almonds already in it instead of adding them separately. This cookies turned out really well, the batter was kind of lumpy and I didn't try to smooth out the dough scoops but I think it added to the rustic look. They were very tasty, the sweetness of the raisins contrasted nicely with the saltiness of the peanuts. It was a nice chunky cookies, the kind you almost have to to serve with milk.

Your cookies look great, I agree that these are a cookie that needs to be served with milk. I love your apron, too cute :)

Milk and cookies are a wonderful combo. Nice and knobbly cookies.

These look fantastic. I used unsalted peanuts (I just shelled some I had in the house) but regret it. I'm sure the salty peanuts were a nice contrast!

They look gorgeous and with that apron you look like the perfect little home baker. I love your new pic by the way.

You definitely need a big glass of milk with these--- and I don't even like milk! They look great!

I agree that these cookies are great with some milk. Or in my case, tea. I can't stop eating them. They look good.
