TWD: Granola Grabbers


This week's edition of Tuesdays with Dorie is a good one! I am a big fan of cookies and oatmeal raisin are one of my favorites. My husband's favorite cereal is granola and he loves coconut so these were a big hit.

I made only a couple of slight changes. I used flax seed instead of wheat germ. I'm not really familiar with either so I didn't noticed any difference. Dorie suggests using granola without fruit because it is often too dry and therefore leaves the cookies dried out. My raisins seemed to be a bit dry on their own so I hydrated them in some warm water before adding them in. It worked great.

Thanks to Michelle of Bad Girl Baking for a great selection!

I've never tried wheat germ or flaxseed either. I went with the wheat germ, but with all the good stuff you hear about flaxseed (Omega fatty acids, etc), it's probably worth a substitution in my future adventures with the recipe. Your cookies turned out lovely.

These look good. I think the sub of flaxseed is a great idea!

I used flaxseed as well, and didn't miss the wheat germ at all. Great job!

Look at you! Soaking your raisins first. You're obviously an granola cookie pro. Glad you and J liked the cookies! Great job!

I never think to use flax seed - I have it, so I really should start using it more. Nice sub.
