These are so good. I baked them 15 minutes and they were perfect. I used coconut instead of the chocolate chips and for the fruit I used dried strawberries, cherries and apricots. After freezing for a few weeks they were just as good as when freshly baked. I will never buy those hard, dry granola bars again. Thanks so much for a great recipe.

These are fabulous!!! I halved the recipe and ended up with 32 cookies. I used golden raisins, dried blueberries, and dried cranberries for my fruit. I found that if I baked them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, they'd come out of the oven pretty soft, but would firm up nicely if left to sit on the baking sheet for a few minutes. (I tried baking the first batch for 10 minutes, and they stayed pretty squishy.) I can't speak to how well they freeze, as we've just been chowing down on them all week, but they are a good energy-packed, portable breakfast. I'll definitely be making these again - thanks for sharing, kburie!
