How to Make Granola-ish Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat: Oven to 375 F
  2. Combine: Flour, baking soda, salt, wheat germ, flax seed and sunflower seeds in small bowl.
  3. Beat: Brown sugar, butter and granulated sugar in larger mixer bowl until creamy. Beat in eggs, milk and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in Oats, morsels and nuts; mix well.
  4. Drop by rounded teaspoon onto ungreased baking sheets (I use parchment paper)

    This batter also works very good if refrigerated overnight-it seems to make the cookies easier to shape.
  5. Bake: 10-12 minutes or longer for crispy cookies. Remove onto wire racks to cool.
