I’m a big granola fan so I decided to change my Healthy Oatmeal Cookie recipe slightly into Healthy Granola Cookies! 

This recipe is quick and easy. Whole grains and fiber make for a healthy cookie. And now that school has started again, we love to eat these for breakfast before school or as an after school snack.

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/3 cup vegetable oil

2/3 cup packed brown sugar (light or dark) USE HALF THIS AMOUNT

1 large egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup rolled oats (not quick cooking) GRANOLA (I make my own but any kind will work – Grind it into crumbs in a food processor)

1/2 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours and baking powder. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together oil, sugar, egg, and vanilla. Add flour mixture, and stir to combine; mix in oats GRANOLA and raisins.

Place on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. I use a tablespoon measuring spoon and place about 1 1/2 inches apart. They don’t spread very much. Bake for 15 minutes.

Cool 5 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days. They freeze good if you can get them to the freezer before they are gone!

Simple Naan Pizza

 

Ingredients:

Naan Bread (keep on hand in freezer)

Pizza Sauce

Mozzarella Cheese

Toppings of your choice

Seasonings

 

Directions: Place Naans on a baking sheet. Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons of pizza sauce on each Naan. Put on toppings, ending with cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 10 minutes. (I sometimes broil for only1 minute after it has baked 8-10 minutes) Slide onto a cutting board or plate. Top with seasonings, if desired. I use seasonings from Victoria Gourmet. (pizza seasoning or the Jalapeno Pepper Flakes)

 

 


This is a great time saver for a home school lunch. I can have it ready to bake in about five minutes.

 

 

It’s simple, quick, & nutritious.
