Very good Kind of like a "granola bar". I think you could add whatever nuts or dried fruit you wanted. I tried chocolate chips and nuts in some.

I have been making these classic cookies for years. However, the addition of chocolate candy kicks up demand for the quick cookies. Since we love peanut butter I usually add more than the 1/2 cup of peanut butter. Be prepared to make many batches of these cookies!
