Healthier Granola Cookie Wedges

Quick and Easy Healthier Granola Cookie Wedges Recipe l

How do you feel about having to wait less than 30 minutes before biting into a warm, gooey cookie? How about a warm, gooey cookie that is relatively healthy? If you are impatient and like to indulge without going overboard (like me!), you have to give this recipe a try! When I first saw a recipe for granola cookie wedges that claimed to be on the lighter side, I was both intrigued and a little skeptical. But, of course, I had to give it a try.

With a few tweaks and changes in ingredients, I made a giant cookie that can satisfy your chocolate cookie craving without taking up your precious time or without eating lots of refined sugars and fats. Chocolate chips, a sprinkling of M&M’s, cashews, and oats give the cookie the hearty, granola taste. White whole wheat flour, honey, and egg whites make this delicious cookie lighter than your average cookies.

Instead of making them into individual cookies, spread the cookie batter into the bottom of a pie plate (why have I never tried this before?!). After it’s done baking, it’s up to you to decide if you’ll cut the giant cookie into wedges or just dig in with a fork! No judging here!

Oh, my gosh, first I'd eat half the dough, then I'd bake and eat the rest! What terrific cookies---and lightening them up is a huge bonus!

This is genius! The time investment is what usually holds me back from making cookies. 0 to cookies in 20 minutes?? YES.
