The "chewy granola bar" cookie

I have made this cookie many times since discovering on Pinterest (I believe). I simply changed a few ingredients to make it dairy-free, and since it’s naturally gluten free, this cookie gets two thumbs up for being easy to make and versatile. I especially like this cookie because you can switch out ingredients for whatever you have on hand. But first here is the recipe that I use:
 

INGREDIENTS

– 1 cup of oats

– 2 TBSP peanut butter (I use creamy, but crunchy is also an option)

– 1 TSP baking powder

– 1 TSP vanilla

– 1 TSP cinnamon

– 1-2 TBSP brown sugar

– 2 packets of splenda (or you could use 2 TSP white sugar)

– A splash of milk (I use unsweetened Silk almond milk)

– 2 TBSP choc. chips (I prefer EnjoyLife dairy-free mini chocolate chips)

– 2 TBSP cranberries

ALTERNATIVES:

In addition to chocolate chips and cranberries, you could add chopped walnuts or pecans. Although, any kind of nut would work well, too. Or you could nix the cranberries and add a different type of dried fruit to give it a different flavor all together.

BAKING INSTRUCTIONS:

Cook for 8 minutes at 350° on a lightly greased baking sheet. It is really that simple.
