Oatmeal Granola Cookies


Molly has been resisting naps lately which means our afternoons can feel long. Earlier this week, I decided we needed a diversion from our no-nap afternoon and since Molly loves baking, I thought it would be fun to make cookies with her.


Oatmeal cookies are a favorite around here because we like to pretend that they have some nutritional value. I also had some granola leftover from my granola-fest in May that needed to be used up before it went bad. I decided to mix in the granola along with some dried fruit to my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe. The end result was delicious! My recipe tester couldn't keep her hands off them.
