Chocolate Chip Granola Bar Cookies

Sharing is caring!

I will admit it. I am not much of a baker.

I enjoy cooking a lot more than I enjoy baking.

I’ve had more baking mishaps than successes. I’ve burned a lot of cookies. I multi-task too much and forget about them.

Many years ago, when I was inviting to a cookie exchange, I made my mother in law’s kiss cookies, because they’re easy, and I figured I couldn’t screw them up.

It was a disaster of epic proportions.

I may have told you about it before, but I forgot the sugar in one batch, and the eggs in the next. By the time I realized what I had done, the cookies were in the oven. You can’t really fix that once they are cooking. I was ready to throw in the towel. Actually I did. My husband took pity on me and made the third batch for me. I never attended another cookie exchange.

I don’t have the same problem with cooking on the stove. I’m actually a pretty good cook, and I enjoy it.

So now that I have told you about one of my baking fiascos, I am going to share a cookie recipe. You might be wondering why on earth you would want to try it. And I wouldn’t blame you. But one thing I generally do well with in terms of baking is bar cookies…that is, if I don’t forget any ingredients! As far as burning goes, you have a little more more margin for error in the bake time with bar cookies. I haven’t burned a batch yet.

These chocolate chip granola bar cookies went quick. The kids all gave them a thumbs up…even my daughter, who IS a good baker. Plus, they use Hippie Chick Granola, which is my favorite. (You could use other granola though.)
