Granola Breakfast Cookies

My sweetheart leaves for work at 4:30 in the morning.  At that time of day he is not thinking about making or eating any breakfast before leaving.  Just point him to the coffee pot.  I decided that these healthy breakfast cookies would be easy to throw in his lunchbox and have for breakfast after he gets to work.  They are easy and nutritious.  If you use protein granola they become protein packed cookies.

This recipe makes 12- 14 large cookies.

1 1/2 c. granola
1 1/2 c. rolled oats (oatlmeal)
1 c. of dried fruit (any kind)
l/2 c. chocolate chips
1/2 t. cinnamon (optional)
2 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 c. peanut butter
1/4 c. honey

In a small bowl combine the bananas, peanut butter, and honey.  In a larger bowl combine all the other ingredients.  Then mix the honey mixture into the dry ingredients. Using a 1/4 c. measuring cup as a scoop, scoop out cookies and place onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  You will need to put a little water on your hand to flatten the cooky out.  If your hand is not damp it will stick to the cooky.
Bake at 325 for 15 minutes.  Let sit on the cooky sheet for 5 minutes before removing.
