I felt really good making these. I made homemade granola (which I had previously been too lazy to do - but never will be again!). I used this recipe from Orangette and it is truly fantastic.
What did I replace it with? Why, what else, chocolate of course! I added a good sized portion of chocolate chips and then M&M's and extra almonds and pecans for good measure.
These cookies are wonderful!! I actually only baked one sheet and then shaped and froze the rest of the dough so it is ready to pop in the oven at a moments notice - like this Thursday when Aidan comes home from his very first day of Kindergarten! (Wow and gulp!!) I'm sure they will be the perfect after-school snack!
I am sure we will make these cookies again (and again)! Thanks to Michelle for picking this!
Be sure to check out all the granola-y goodness from all the others spending Tuesdays with Dorie!
