I decided to recreate a granola cookie I once had in Sonoma from a cute little coffee shop. It was this fantastic oat-based cookie with honey and nuts and seeds. It was filling and tasty, but not vegan. So I thought I would try it at home with my modifications. I'm very, very pleased with how they came out.

I was wondering how you handle the rice syrup. The kind I use is troublingly thick and sticky and doesn't mix well with the other ingredients.
Hi, Margarine has milk protein. Either Whey or Casein. Did you find a specific brand that doesn't have either?
Ren-Oaty Granola Cookies
I've been looking for a good granola bar/cookie recipe for a long time and this one is good. Made it today and it tastes great. But I found the cooking time of 25 minutes way too long. They would have been burnt to a crisp by then. I'm wondering if the temperature was supposed to be 275 instead of 375 F as most granola recipes are cooked at a lower temperature. Also in your photo it looks like you've included almonds, but they are not listed in the ingredients. I love almonds and would like to include them. Do my eyes deceive me, or did you include almonds in yours? Thanks very much.
