Grumblies

Huh? Grumble-what? Grumblies. I have no idea where the name was conjured, but I can tell you one thing – these cookies (yes, that’s right, I’m talking about cookies) are delicious!

One of my best friends first introduced me to these tasty treats a couple years ago and they have been a favourite of mine ever since. I always seem to have to ingredients on hand, much like I do for my Anzac Biscuits. They are packed full of nuts, seeds, sultanas and oats which gives one the impression that they’re healthy. As far as sweet treats go, they’re definitely healthi-er than Chocolate Chip Cookies or cupcakes, but they’re still yummy! I also like to add a tablespoon of Chia seeds to my Grumblies for an extra kick of goodness!

I made up a batch of Grumblies last night because a) I wanted to put one of my new jars to use and b) my boyfriend’s co-worker has been bugging me ever since the last time I made Grumblies for more Grumblies. Honestly, every time I see him, he mentions Grumblies. Yes, they’re that good. I haven’t made them for a while and had some spare time, plus I wanted to share the recipe with my followers so, naturally, I had to make them in order to include a photo in this post (hard life, right?).
