Fruit Granola Biscuits. These cookies are an absolutely brilliant invention – you take a relatively "plain" cookie base and then throw in chunks of granola, nuts, dried fruit and coconut. It's one, big, cookie-sized hunk of granola that you can walk around and eat. Biscuits with no added suger, so very healthy and yummy!!
The base is similar to a chocolate chip cookie, but instead of mixing in chocolate chips, they are full of granola, dried fruit, nuts and white chocolate chips. In other words, a borderline absurd amount of mix-ins is the key to perfect Granola Cookies. A healthier take on one of our family favorites, the classic oatmeal raisin cookie, they share the great similarities, but ditch the high fat and sugar content.

Recipes like this one for granola breakfast cookies have become my saving grace. These are still cookies, there's no doubt about that. But they do have almost half the amount of butter and sugar as cookies normally do, and they are chalk full of great things like granola, coconut, nuts and dried fruit. I used granola that contained raisins and almonds which I think are a fabulous addition to these cookies. Feel free to use your favorite granola, but I would skip plain granola on these cookies since the additional ingredients make them so interesting.
