No Bake Granola Thumbprints with Lemon Curd

The theme of this past #SundaySupper was “no bake summer recipes,” and one of the questions asked during our Twitter chat was “When it comes to no-bake recipes do you think savory or sweet?” My answer: “I always think sweet, because my Mom makes no-bake oatmeal cookies that we simply refer to as NO BAKES.”

My friend Courtney chimed in that it might be a Midwest thing, as she lives in Ohio, and they’re just called “no bakes” down there, too. Maybe, like “pop” vs “soda,” you can always tell where a person grew up by how they refer to cookies of this kind. No matter what you call them, they’re really the perfect cookie for summer, and as I’ve recently discovered, you can get pretty creative with them, too.

I figured it would be no problem to sub out traditional old fashioned oats with the new Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Granola, and I was right. Either flavor would be great in these cookies, but here I’ve used the Honey Oat Granola. Made with whole grain, gluten free oats, these granolas are crunchy and lightly sweet. They’re perfect on top of yogurt or fruit, and it turns out that you can [no] bake with them, too! These granola thumbprints take just 5 minutes to stir up. Once they’re cool, top them with lemon curd or your favorite jam.

    I love granola, but was disappointed when I went to the Bob’s Red Mill site and discovered that going gluten free increases the calories significantly, and messes unpleasantly (for me) with the nutrition. I love granola, but think I’ll just stick with my homemade stuff… :-)
