museli cookies

Healthy Breakfast Cookies. That's how I would describe today's recipe. This recipe comes from the back of a Bob's Red Mill Muesli bag, and the cookies are chock full of all the good foods you need in the morning such as rolled oats, whole wheat, and dried fruit, plus there's no added oil.
These cookies were a little too healthy for me, but if I had no time to eat breakfast, maybe, just maybe, I'd eat one of these, but that's a just maybe, not a guarantee. I'm not saying these cookies were bad, just not what I expected. They are soft and chewy, though.

Bob's Red Mill Muesli Cookies
from here
1 cup muesli
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
2/3 cup applesauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
6 oz. chocolate chips or dried cranberries
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg

  5. Yum those look great! And the ingredients list is awesome. I have to try these :D

  6. Last weekend I brought these cookies to two different parties and they were untouched at both. Guests told me: "When you want a cookie, you don't want it to be healthy". I do not understand this at all, but in the future I would reserve these for "vegan potluck" type events, and not "regular parties". More for me though! THEY ARE AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS.
