Granola Oatmeal Cookie

Sometimes inspiration comes from what is available in your pantry. With this cookie, I just happened to have some unused granola that needed a new life. Once you try granola in place of oats in this cookie, it will forever be your go to oatmeal cookie.

Granola Oatmeal Cookie

Substituting granola for the oats gives this cookie a chewy soft texture while still keeping its form. And the raisins and walnuts just add to the delicious flavor.
