1/2 c. vegetable shortening
1 tsp vanilla flavoring
2 c. flour
2 c. your favorite granola (your favorite)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together the first four ingredients with mixer on low to medium speed or mix by hand. Fold in applesauce and rest of remaining ingredients. Drop mixture by rounded tablespoons 2 inches apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake approximately 11 – 12 minutes until cookie springs back once touched in center. Let cool on sheet for a few minutes before removing onto wire racks.
