I'm alway looking for a healthier cookie so I came up with this one. If you prefer you could use plain yogurt instead of ricotta and any baking chips would do.

Love this recipe! My husband even asked me to make a big batch to take on our trip. I made one batch with some tropical fruit trail mix that I had on hand. We love that too. Thanks for sharing this.

Great recipe! I pack a piece in my daughter's lunch pack vs giving her one of those storebought granola bars. Her friends always ask her to share! I've made it with about 2 T peanut butter or ripe banana and it's also great!

This is a great recipe! Versatile, hearty, and the perfect on the go snack. We cut out half of the sugar, but we don't like things too sweet! It is excellent as a base, you can add almost anything to it and it still tastes great! Thanks for posting it.
