The recipe I make more then any other recipe, would have to be my Maple Granola. I make it about every other week, and I eat it almost every morning with my yogurt.
It’s also the “most made” recipe in the home of my girlfriend. She has a granola eating family.
On Black Friday, Costco was handing out free cookbooks. It was on my list of places to go that morning.
Yes, I participate in all the black Friday frenzy. I get up way to early, go out in the freezing, dark night, and stand in unbearably long lines, as do sooo many others. Do I do it to save a buck? Hell no.
No… I do it because I like all the hustle and bustle. Call me crazy!
I went with my granola eating girlfriend.
We shopped, we went to breakfast, we got a free cookbook!
It was in this cookbook that I found a recipe for Chewy Granola Cookies. It was submitted by Nature’s Path, using their own granola. I’m sure they are delicious made with any granola, but I made them with my homemade maple granola. And they were fantastic!
I made 2 batches within days of each other. Yea…that good!
I made one batch for me,
and I made one batch for my granola eating girlfriend’s family!
