Chunky Sweet 'n Salty Cookies

Sweet + Salty = Perfect Cookies? Heck yes! Of course they do!  :)  Goldfish, cranberries, chocolate chips, left over granola, and every other cereal I found in my pantry went into these cookies. Gross, you think? Well not really! They looked kinda weird, (the gold fish were stickin out) but they were sweet and salty. But of course, not too sweet you couldn't taste the salty add ins!
