You saved my Memorial dinner. It's the end of the month, and the end of the groceries, and it's a holiday. I was trying to think of a dessert, but I had no butter lef, I had no eggs left, what to make til I saw this recipe with oil. They were very good, did remind me alot of granola. I mixed in some white chocolate chips, and peanut butter. Very good, and actually filling. I had two cookies and it was more than enough to satisfy, and fill me up. Every one thought they were very good, and even a little unique.

These were... weird. They didn't really hold together and the "batter" seemed practically like granola and was really hard to mold into cookie-like shapes to put on my baking sheet. Maybe adding an egg as a couple of the other reviewers had would help. No leavening either. Odd. The final product was okay - certainly edible, and tasty even, but not something I would make again.

These taste like granola bars! I replaced the raisins for chocolate chips! Very good!
