Spending time in the kitchen with my 5 year old has to be one of my favorite things to do with her. Ever since her toddler years, she has had an affinity for all things baking, prep, and cooking. The baby goes down for a nap, big sister is at school, and we devise new recipes. This recipe is so healthy, I wouldn't dare call it a cookie even though it looks like one. Simple ingredients, loads of protein (especially with the ancient grains granola), and really fun for little hands to help with rolling the dough into balls.
*Instead of using PB and cocoa, a dark chocolate peanut butter (such as Peanut Butter and Co.'s chocolate peanut butter is a good substitute).
Preheat oven to 350˚. Grind 1 cup of the granola into a flour. Mix this with the eggs, peanut butter, cocoa, salt and honey. Fold in the remaining 1/2 cup of granola that hasn't been ground. Roll into balls, place on baking sheet and press with a fork in a criss-cross pattern. Bake for 12-15 minutes.
