Awhile ago I mentioned that I joined a new baking group, well this is it! Sweet Melissa Sundays! I haven’t really heard much about the Sweet Melissa Baking Book but the few people I know that own it, love it. So I figured I couldn’t really go wrong.
This week’s recipe was chosen by Jessica of The Singleton in the Kitchen. The recipe was a 2 part recipe, the first being granola and the second being the cookies of course. I took the easy way out and used some store bought granola that I have on hand.
Oddly enough, this granola included everything that the homemade granola called for except the currants. That’s okay though because I don’t even know what a currant is!
The recipe was really easy. Seriously, took me maybe 6 or 7 minutes to mix everything up and that’s with a toddler helping! Oh, and by the way, someone should’ve warned me that molasses is the worst smell in the entire world. I nearly choked on the awfulness.
I was a little worried because I find honey to be VERY strong and the recipe called for 1/2 cup of it. And then after smelling the molasses I was even more worried.
My kid is in LOVE with these cookies. He has had one with each meal since I made them. I can’t blame him though, they are pretty good. They’re a little dense since they’re made with only whole wheat flour, but hey, that’s fine with me. I’d rather have WW any day. I’ve seen a few of my fellow bakers talk about the molasses being overwhelming but I thought it was fine. Even the honey was okay.
If you want to make these and I know you do, head over to Jessica’s blog to get the recipe.
