Oatmeal cookies made to use up granola, but can be used with trail mix or any fruit and nut mixture.

Oatmeal granola cookies (800x600)

I recently bought some gluten-free granola that I’ve been working my way through for breakfast.  But, I have a strange quirk, where I may buy something because I’ve been wanting to have it for so long, but after a few servings, I’m totally over it.  This granola was like that.  After a few mornings, I just wanted to go back to my normal breakfast of fruit and nuts with almond milk.  But, what to do with leftover granola, apart from giving it to Grant to eat?  And that’s where this recipe came in.

I’ve also made it with my own granola (check out all my granola recipes here).  You know, when you get down to the bottom of the container and most of the yummy chunks have gone?  And it’s almost a chore to eat it in the mornings?  This is a great way to use them up.  No one will know the difference!

All good and healthy ingredients, no refined sugar, so ticks most of the boxes for me.  And they were very yummy … both the dough and the finished product!  Give it a go and let me know what you think.
