Muesli Chocolate Chip Cookies

muesli chocolate chip cookies

I have a bag of muesli in the pantry that was not being eaten as the kids do not want go through the effort to boil it in a pot  for a hot breakfast opting for the instant oatmeal packets. I decided to try a healthier cookie and use the muesli in these cookies.  The cookies are chewy and just sweet enough with surprising bites sometimes with dates or raisins.  They have an nice crunch that I believe is from the flax seed in this particular muesli mix.

Chocolate Chip Muesli Cookies

1/2 tsp Salt
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 cup Brown Sugar

6 oz Chocolate Chips

Heat oven to 375°F. 
Sift flour, baking soda, and salt together and set aside. 
Cream butter, sugar, and vanilla. Beat in egg. 
Add flour mixture and mix. Stir in Muesli and chocolate chips. 
Drop by teaspoons on lightly greased cookie sheet.
 Bake at 375°F for 10-12 minutes or until brown.
