granola grabbers

Granola Grabbers– I feel so wholesome.  Perhaps Michelle of Bad Girl Baking was going for that good, clean feeling when she chose these for TWD this week.

Whether you are trying to satisfy the after-school crowd, or are just trying to put aside those impure thoughts you’ve been having about Gael García Bernal ever since watching The Motorcycle Diaries a few days ago, these will do the trick.  These chubby little cookies are loaded with granola (of course), wheat germ, nuts, coconut and raisins (or dried cranberries, in my case).  I also added a pinch of cinnamon to mine.  They are chewy, but the granola also makes them crunchy…a very pleasant combination of textures.  I only made a third of a recipe, and I briefly thought about patting the dough into a loaf pan and making bars instead, but I have definitely not been getting my recommended daily dose of cookies lately.

  1. Mmm, those look scrumptious!

  2. I haven’t made mine yet, I just put my granola in the over and I thought I would come and see how they should look. Thank you for the beautiful visual. This will make a perfect after school snack.

  3. I meant, oven, of course~

  4. These look great! I like the addition of dried cranberries. I think next time I’d add a bit of cinnamon like you did.

  5. So funny – I also thought they would be nice with cinnamon. I wrote the post last weekend and ended with that, but it won’t go up on the blog until tomorrow. I’ll bet we read this over and over when we see the posts tomorrow. Your cookies look great, and that’s a perfect glass for milk!

  6. We put cinnamon in ours as well! Your pictures look great!

  7. The pictures of your cookies are great! Totally “grabbed” my attention. (Har Har!) Anyway, nice job on the cookies. I really liked these, probably too much.

  8. Wow, you have awesome pics! I especially love your pic of these cookies. They look so chubby and yummy! Great job!

  9. I really love your pics. I personally don’t like granola anything but these “might” change my mind. 😉 You should check out my version. I also added cinnamon. 😀

  10. Oh they look so yummy! Looking at the photos makes me want one again! Theses were great!

  11. Yours look great!!! I added cinnamon too!

  12. Great addition with the cherries! These look delicious!

  13. Gorgeous pics as ALWAYS! I added cinnamon sugar to the top of mine as well… it adds a really nice flavor!

    What kind of a camera do you use?

  14. wowww…yummm…these looks great!
    i now have a craving for some granola bars…or cookies =]]
    great job!

  18. Your granola grabbers look delish, I love the photos

  19. I have got to try these, too!

  20. I almost added a bit of cinnamon to mine too.

  21. Yum! Your cookies look so good. I wish I had thought of adding cinnamon to mine. I will next time. The dried cranberries sound perfect too =D

  23. Your cookies look great. I absolutely love how you present your delights.

  24. i tossed some nutmeg in with the rum and chocolate…these things were so good!!! i also thought they were fun with granola, you couldn’t even taste it!

  25. I love the funky background and the layered tones of the paper napkin too! what lovely photos.. they must have tasted EVEN BETTER!

  26. Amen to that sister! Gael is scrumptious, as well as your granola grabbers of course. Nice job!

  27. My Dad requests that I make these by asking for “those cookies with all the stuff in them”. They’re awesome!

  28. I totally agree with you about the great texture! I loved how they were soft yet crunchy! And your pics make me wanna run home and grab another grabber 😉

  29. Oh wow, these look SO good!

  30. I really think it might be quite impossible to take a bad photo of these cookies, but your photos are absolutely spectacular. I want the cookies and the milk! Now. Great job!

  31. I was debating cinnamon but left it out. Glad it worked out!

  32. I love your pictures. Your cookies turned out very good!

  33. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Thankfully, my daughter will mix up her wardrobe. The uniform routine only lasts about a month.

  34. Honestly, I don’t think these cookies could distract me from Gael. It would take a really, really good cookie to do that – and maybe some ice cream and hot fudge with it too! I loved that movie. 🙂

  35. I think I should re-evaluate the fact that I don’t have a daily quota of cookies, it seems like a serious lack on my part. Those look fabulous.

  36. your cookies look perfect!

  37. Just out of curiosity: what is the medical recommended daily dose of cookies? :-p

  38. Great looking cookies! I’ll bet the cranberries were great; I used dried sour cherries which added the same kind of note.

  39. If I didn’t know any better, I’d eat my laptop screen. Nice job on the grabbers.

  40. Your cookies look great! I enjoyed mine as well. Chewy & crispy – a wonderful combination!

  41. These cookies were so delicious, but I’m not sure that they would do the trick when trying to cleanse me of unpure thoughts about Gael García Bernal! 😉

  42. The addition of the cinnamon was definitely a good idea, and I wish I’d thought of it. They cookies needed a little extra something, and now I know what it was!

  43. Delicious! These look so good!

  44. oohh, it’s a great idea to use cranberries instead of raisins. I’m gonna try that out next time!

  45. These look fantastic and wholesome..cookies I wouldn’t feel too guilty about giving the kids for an energy boost.

  46. Bars would be a great way to go with these! I like your addition of cinnamon!
