Composed of whole grain oats, rice flour, oat flour and barley malt with unsulfured dried apples, natural blueberry flavor, sweetened with mixed fruit concentrate – pineapples, pears, peaches – and evaporated cane sugar, Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola makes a great healthy cereal. I could very easily throw this stuff into a bowl, pour on some milk and chow down, but, I’ve decided to go a step further. I’m baking cookies!
I opened the bag of granola and the fragrant scent of apples hit my senses. Big clusters of granola that when eaten show off the hint of blueberry flavour.
First off, I creamed butter, brown sugar, an egg and vanilla in the mixer.
I then added the granola. The recipe called for chopped dried apricots and some nuts. I had dried currants on hand, so substituted them for the apricots. I then also added some slivered almonds and mixed by hand
Prepped for the oven.
15 minutes later we have golden brown granola cookies.
Crispy edges and chewy insides after cooling them for a few minutes. That blueberry flavour still stands out and the currants are a nice touch. Using Bob’s Red Mill Apple Blueberry Granola to make cookies adds great texture and creates a nice hearty cookie that would probably taste amazing with a glass of milk. =)
