1 package yellow cake mix
3/4 cup shortening
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups fruity granola
1/2 cup chopped nuts, if desired

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat half of the cake mix (dry), the shortening, brown sugar and eggs in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, or mix with spoon. Stir in remaining cake mix, the granola and nuts. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until light brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
