Granola Bar Cookies

I told Josh that I would make him cookies tonight and I did—I made cookies based on my chocolate chip granola bar recipe.  They have everything the bars do–oatmeal, chocolate chips, cinnamon, coconut and walnuts (okay, not everything; there’s no honey or oil).

Recipe Follows:

Cookie Base:
2 sticks unsalted butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
3/4 c. white sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
2 eggs
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Add in:
1 c. chocolate chips
1 c. old fashioned oats
1/2 c. chopped walnuts
1 c. flaked coconut
1 tbsp fresh ground cinnamon

Cream together the butter and sugar; add eggs one at a time, and then vanilla and cinnamon.

Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a separate bowl.  Slowly add to butter mixture, incorporating thoroughly.

Fold in oats, chocolate, walnuts and coconut.  Chill dough in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet and baked at 350F for 8-10 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned and starting to set.
