Note

Store the granola cookies in a cookie jar or airtight container to keep them crispy up to two weeks.
Apart from rolled oats, you can change the grains used in this recipe as long as you keep this ratio: 80g of puffed cereals or flakes must be choppend with oats while 30g must be added to the cookie dough without being chopped.
Sesame seeds can be replaced with other seeds of your choice such as flax, pumpkin, sunflower or a mix; same thing for goji berries that can be replaced with dried fruit to taste (such as cranberries or apricots, cut into small pieces).
