i know these cookies don't look like much...
but let me tell you... they are the best cookies
i've ever made! and, at age 46,
i've made my fair share of all different kinds of cookies!
i call this "granola breakfast cookie."
after i baked them.... i wrapped them individually and
put them in the freezer...they're excellent warm and
fresh from the oven... but they are better then excellent when gobbled up cold!

here's the secret recipe:

mix well: 1 egg, 1/2 cup butter (softened), 1/4 c. honey, 1/4 c. brown sugar

add: 1 teaspoon vanilla (which i add extra- i love vanilla!), 2 c. mashed up bananas, 1/2 cup of sour cream. mix well.

add: 1 1/2 c. flour (whole wheat is fine), 1 tbsp. baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 2 1/2 cups of granola cereal (i use heart smart granola) and for a little kick, i tossed in 1/2 bag of nestles white chocolate chips.

grease a cookie sheet, drop by either cookie size (rounded teaspoon) or to make a breakfast size cookie, drop by a couple heaping ice cream scoops!

bake 375* for 12 minutes for smaller cookies and 15-17 minutes for fist size breakfast cookies.

(go ahead, try a little spoonful of the cookie dough... that, in itself is spectacular!)

i'll be back tomorrow, i hope you will be, too!
