Best Granola Cookies Ever!

Ok, maybe that's hyperbole.  I haven't tasted your granola cookies, after all.  Maybe yours are the best.  (If they are, please send me the recipe)

But here's a really good recipe, that uses Love Crunch, my youngest daughter's favorite granola.  It is a chocolate granola with bits of dried strawberries and raspberries in it.

Please do not blame me if you eat them all.

You will need:
1/2 cup butter, unsalted
2/3 cup sugar (I use a turbinado)
1 large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp coconut flavoring (if you have it- it's not absolutely necessary)

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 cup flaked coconut
1 and 1/4 cup Love Crunch (chopped up, so there aren't any large clusters)

Cream together butter, sugar and flavoring, then add egg.

Now add all the other ingredients, and stir till well mixed.

Drop by the teaspoon onto a parchment lined cookies sheet.  Bake at 375 for approximately 12 minutes- ovens will vary, and some people like their cookies more done.  Let cool before moving cookies.


Love Crunch has dark chocolate, dried strawberries and dried raspberries in it- so as you eat the granola cookies, occasionally a delicious burst of berry will hit your taste buds!
