    Akikobay's Note:

    I admit to being a granola bar failure. A lot of the homemade granola bar recipes I've tried are either rock hard or gummy uncooked-tasting disasters. This recipe is for a savory breakfast cookie that is really light and crispy. This is a variation of a recipe that was published by Quaker Oats. I've made several adjustments, but the basic recipe idea is theirs. The bacon and cheese can make this quite salty, so I usually only add a pinch of salt. The recipe appears to be quite forgiving, however, and I've made different variations on the same theme. I don't change the sugar amount because I've found that it really needs the sugar for purposes of improving the texture. NOTE: In lieu of the flours, you may substitute 3/4 c. white flour and 1/4 cup wheat germ, just make sure you get a cup of some sort of flour mixture. The prep time doesn't include time in the refrigerator.

      I love these! I am so sick of really sweet granola bars and on the go breakfast stuff. These are lightly sweet, but also savory. I baked them all and kept them in the frig. Then, in the morning, I popped one (or three) in the microwave for 10 seconds just to warm up a little. YUM!

      My whole family loves these. They are a fun alternative to other more standard breakfast fare. The recipe made about 18 good sized cookies for me.

      I'm glad to have found this great option for a quick breakfast in the morning. I didn't use bacon because I don't like it when it's crispy. The cheese (I used mozarella) gives depth to the flavor and the oatmeal is filling. The directions are a bit confusing. Steps 6 and 7 should say "fold in" the oats and cheese rather than "stir in" and step 11 should be in the notes. Despite all that, these are really worth trying.
