Crazy yummy. You can substitute anything and everything for the nuts or dried fruit in this recipe. I like to use a combination of chocolate chips, dried fruit, nuts, and sometimes other assorted chips. You can also use other types of cereal like rice krispies, honey bunch of oats, or crumbled cheerios.
3 sticks (1 1/2 cups) margarine
2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
4 heaping cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups prepared granola (from the box)
1 heaping cup cooking oats
1 1/2 cups apricots
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup golden raisins
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Cream the margarine and sugars. Add the vanilla and eggs. Next, add the flour, baking soda and salt. Add in the granola and oatmeal. Fold in the apricots, cherries, pecans, raisins, and chocolate chips.
With a cookie scoop or two spoons, drop onto cookie sheets and bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
