Dicky Bird's Fruit Jumbles

1/2 C flaked coconut
1/2 C craisins
1/2 C currants
1/2 C "Fruit Bits" - (Sun Maid Brand)
1/2 C chopped banana chips
1 C "Bob's Red Mill" apple cinnamon granola
1 C "Bob's Red Mill"  muesli

reserve this to the side

Cream together:

1 stick butter
1 C brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla

While still beating, add:

1 t. baking soda
1 t. baking powder
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t salt
1/2 C honey

Mix together and add:

2 C flour
Fruit & granola mix

Roll in 1 1/2" balls (rounded tablespoon).  Bake 350 for 12-14 min.  Makes 4 doz.

I made this one up too.  This is a good way to clean out the pantry - that is why I made them.  You could add any type of dried fruit you like. They actually are really good and I guess pretty healthy too.
