Review & Recipe: Lizi's passionfruit & pistachio granola cookies

When the email landed in my inbox asking me to review some Lizi's granola I jumped at the chance.

I know granola doesn't sound like the most exciting product to try but I had never tried it before and was intrigued by the different flavour combinations Lizi's range has.

I was also very keen because I am currently following a low GI/GL diet (hate that word!), as I have previously discussed, for health reasons.

Lizi's webiste has a whole glycemic load section which was very informative and great to hear these products fit in with my diet!

The webiste also features a whole heap of recipes featuring new and imaginative ways to use granola, from apricot and sage stuffing to granola bread.

I used my Lizi's passionfruit and pistachio granola in my own recipe to make some healthy cookies.




BE WARNED: These cookies are SO moreish. 

I could have literally eaten the whole batch in one sitting.

I was actually a little annoyed that the kids loved these as much as me. They are normally fussy little sausages, and I was sure nutty cookies would be too 'out there' for their boring little taste buds and that I'd get to keep them all as my own 'Mummy snack'.

How wrong was I? They were begging me to make more!

They are perfect for a breakfast on the go, with an afternoon cuppa or a delicious evening treat.

Oh and super healthy.

Win, win.

This recipe makes around 12-15 good sized cookies.






INGREDIENTS
140g light brown sugar
140g plain flour
1tsp cinnamon
1tsp vanilla extract
pinch of salt
1/4tsp baking powder
75g softened butter
2 eggs
280g Lizi's passionfruit & pistachio granola

METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 180c and lightly grease a baking tray.

2. Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. 

3. Add the vanilla extract, butter and eggs and mix well.

4. Mix in the granola

5. Spoon smallish dollops of the mixture onto the greased tray and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Leave to cool on the tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

Store in an airtight container for up to a week. 

But I can guarantee they won't last that long anyway!
