Friday Treat - Cooking Light Granola Cookie Wedges

Sometimes you just need a cookie - a warm chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven!
But I have to say that cookies are tough for me to bake, because half way through a batch I get bored!
So you can imagine my excitement when I opened up Aprils issue of Cooking Light and found this recipe!

Granola Cookie Wedges! 

This recipe both satisfied my craving for warm gooey cookies while saving me from baking batch after batch of individual cookies! I highly recommend making these bars if you love cookies but hate rolling out batch after batch of cookie dough!  These bars come together in a pinch and bake in no time!  Even Derek that these bars were tasty - and he is the cookie baker out of the two of us!

When I was making these bars I followed the recipe to a "T" but decided I wanted to make them a little nuttier, so I added about a tablespoon of Trader Joe's Sunflower Seed Butter to my dough!  I thought the results were fantastic but was a little shocked when I uncovered my bars the next day and looked down at this...

Yes, my bars turned Bright green!  It was a bit alarming, and I was convinced that I had a mold problem!  It turns out that sometimes baked goods made with Sun Flower Butter will turn bright green due to a chemical reaction between the baking soda and sun flower butter!  Read about a similar situation here!  My mind was put at ease after reading this article (knowing that the bars hadn't molded) but I have to say it was a a bit odd eating a bright green bar.  If only I would have made these for St. Patty's day - they would have been perfect!

All in all these bars are delicious!  I think you should make them today!  Why no?  It is Friday, and Friday afternoons are perfect for a sweet treat like these bars!

Happy Weekend Everyone!
