Blue Berry Energy Cookies


I saw this recipe had to try it, wow are they great!! GO Betty Crocker! now.. I am gonna try to make a fully homemade version..but for now this will work.. Also.. plan to test it with Cranberries and White Chocolate!

1 pouch (1lb1.5 oz) Betty Crocker Oatmeal Cookie mix
1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
3 tbsp. butter, softened (I melted it)
3 tbsp. canola oil
3 tbsp. water
1 egg white
1/2 c dried blueberries
1/4 cup whole almonds, chopped
2 oz bittersweet baking chocolate, chopped

Heat oven to 350. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, wheat germ, butter, oil, water and egg white until soft dough forms. Stir in blueberries, almonds and chocolate.
On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded Tablespoon fulls ( I flattened mine down a bit) 2 inches apart.
Bake 11-13 minutes, or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 5 min, remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack.
