  1. This recipe needed modifications. After reading the reviews I altered the recipe to a more standard cookie recipe and it turned out fine.

  2. I made them as a bar cookie. The cookies really spread out thin but if you like a thin crispy cookie you probably would like them that way. I added a topping of more granola and cut into bars. They were buttery and moist.
  3. These were some of the worst "cookies" I have ever made. They spread way too thin when baking and harden to a chewy mess. Do not bother with these. I followed the recipe exactly aside from adding 1 tsp cinnamon. The dough tasted delicious; the cookies were very promising before they went in the oven. - Read more ...
  4. I used Trader Joe brand berry granola and subbed peach schnapps for vanilla (was out). Yum! Yum! Yum! They are so good that it is hard to believe these are actually fairly nutritious!
  5. These are amazing. I burnt the first batch and my dogs love them too. My daughter eats them for breakfast. Quick and easy to grab on the way out the door. I omitted the salt but used salted nuts since that was what I had in the cupboard. They are yummy.
