Chewy Chews

Fall isn’t complete without oatmeal raisin cookies. I found this recipe on the back of a cereal box of granola with raisins, not realizing it was a twist on the traditional recipe, using granola instead of plain oats. The flavor was buttery, and the chew went on and on…supremely satisfying if you value chewiness in your cookies.  I think next time I make these I’ll just use my old family recipe and replace the oats with a more seedy and nutty granola.  I’ll also replace the raisins with dried blueberries and a chopped up chocolate bar.

Until then, chew on
