Granola Cookie Wedges {Foodie Friday}

Addicting. That’s exactly how I would describe these “cookies.” And due to the fact that they have oatmeal in them, I deem them “almost healthy” which means that you can have another bite. You’re welcome.

It's starting to be that time of year when the day starts to get away from me. These long days have me totally forgetting about the time and suddenly I turn around and it's 8:30 PM! Holy Moly! I love summer, but I also need my sleep. Enter these lovelies. They take about 5 minutes to throw together and less than 15 to bake. That means you can do more while doing less. Get it? These are so quick and easy to make, they taste AMAZING. They are perfect for any summer get together. Or maybe you just want to eat all of them yourself. I won't tell.

No, I don't know why the font sizes are so wonky on this post. I have tried and tried to fix it.
