Muesli cookies!

I'm always on the look for easy delicious kinda-healthy recipes for cookies that I can make with what I already have in my kitchen. So when one of my favorite bd-blogger (comics blogger), Jeromeuh, posted this recipe on his Facebook, it caught my eye straight away - because of the beautifully illustrated recipe probably - and I decided to try it! 
I love cookies because you can snack on them, you can offer them to friends when you are invited over, you always need a cookie in your life. And I also love muesli because it's good for you - full of fibers, dried fruits, nuts, oats - but also filling and flavorful! So this is the best of both worlds, let's get this party started! 

To make those muesli cookies, here is the written recipe (not as cute as the drawn one, but useful). You will need;
  • 3 cups of muesli
  • 1/2 cup of flour (I did 3/4 of a cup)
  • 1/3 cup of honey (I did 1/2 a cup)
  • 100 grams of butter
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of cinnamon (not essential)
Preheat your oven at 170°. Mix everything together in a large bowl, starting with the muesli and flour, then the egg, the honey, the melted butter, and a pinch of cinnamon if you like that spice. You can do it as the drawn recipe advices (first flour and muesli in a bowl, then butter and honey together, whisk an egg in a separate bowl, and then put everything together in the main bowl).
You can make the recipe vegan by replacing honey with agave or maple sirup, the egg with a ripe banana and the butter with soja butter.

To shape the cookies, let's get real, you're gonna have to get your hands dirty! I personally love that feeling, so I really went for it. My preference is a bigger size cookie, and I would recommend that bigger size also, otherwise it has more chance to crumble away when the cookie is baked. 
Put them in the oven at 170° for 10 minutes, and then, you can follow my advice and drizzle a little bit of honey on the burning hot cookies when you take them out of that over. It will melt nicely and add a bit of somethin' somethin' to your kinda-healthy cookie!
Let them cool down, and here's the delicious result. You can pack them to go to school, for a quick snack or even for breakfast. Enjoy!
