Where is the "Makes __ doz. cookies" part of this recipe? This recipe seems alot like one I have in a cookbook at home. don't have access to that cookbook and couldn't find the recipe onlne. It comes from either a Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook or Good Housekeeping Cookbook. Is there anyone out there who can tell me if this particular Chewy Granola Bites cookie recipe is the same one that is in either of the two cookbooks mentioned above. Thanks

Hi Barbara, this recipe makes about 3 dozen cookies, but it all depends on the size of the spoon you are using to drop the batter. You can also pour the batter into a cake pan and bake then cut into squares or bars. And you are correct, this recipe does seem to be from the Good Housekeeping Cookbook.
