Recipe: Granola Cookies

After some tinkering with ingredients, I liked this recipe most. It lets the granola shine while also satisfying the sweet tooth. Depending on the granola you are using, feel free to add nuts, dried fruit or chocolate chips to this recipe. If made with the Coconut Berry Granola, this recipe needs nothing more than what is listed below.
