Like Granola in Cookie Form


I'm too tired to write a story right now. I know that's terrible. But these cookies are too tasty and addictive not to post. Before Granma went home, I made another batch to send home with her.

Pumpkin Seed and Oat Crispies
Makes about 20 cookies.

1 large egg
scant 1/3 cup of brown sugar (yes, I realize that's a weird imprecise measurement, I suppose I could write heaping 1/4 cup)
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup hulled pumpkin seeds

Preheat oven to 375F.

Whisk together egg, sugar, oil, butter, and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir in oats and pumpkin seeds.

Spoon by tablespoonful onto a greased or lined baking sheet. Flatten with a spatula. Bake for 8-15 minutes or until edges are browned and tops are beginning to brown. Let cool completely on pan. Cookies are fragile and break easily.
