Kristin's Granola Bar Bites!

We found some tasty gluten-free granola bar-type cookies while visiting my sister in Dallas, Texas.  They were by Alyssa's Bakery and are gluten-free.  While they are called 'cookies' we found they're more like eating a little granola bar.  They were perfect for travelling, so we picked up extra boxes to go.  Once home, I have done some experimenting to come up with a similar style granola bar bite cookie. These have been a hit! And are SO easy to whip together.  My friend Julie told me I have to get these posted asap so she can make some herself!  They freeze well, too, so I tend to keep a bag in the freezer that we can just take out a few at a time as we want them.
