Granola Chews

Ingredients

1 3/4 c. flour
1 3/4 c. brown sugar, packed, plus 1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. baking soda
1 c. butter or margarine, soft
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla
4 1/2 - 5 c. Kroger Low Fat Granola Cereal w/ Raisins
OPTIONAL: 1 - 14 oz. box Kroger 100% Natural Cereal -- Oats & Honey

Preparation

1
PREHEAT OVEN TO 375.
2
In a large bowl, stir together flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda.
3
Stir in remaining ingredients EXCEPT CEREAL.
4
Mix until smooth.
5
Stir in 3 cups of Low Fat Granola Cereal (with/or without raisins).
6
Form dough into 1-inch balls and roll in remaining cereal or in Kroger 100% Natural Cereal (Oats & Honey), whichever you prefer to use.
7
Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
8
Bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown. (Adjust time according to taste. I preferred to bake mine about 12 minutes, remove them from the oven, and allow them to remain on the cookie sheet for just a minute to firm enough to transfer to the counter to finish cooling. I must have made my cookies larger than 1-inch size, too, because I ended up with less than the predicted 5 dozen, but they were very large, chewy cookies.

About

My daughter in Savannah first shared this recipe with me. She found it on the back of the Kroger Granola Cereal Box. I tried it, tweaked it, and this is the recipe that resulted. It's yummy, nutritious, and I wouldn't think twice about serving it with a glass of milk for breakfast. EnJOY!
