Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies For Just Another Cookie Monday

 

Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies

Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies

Just Another Cookie Monday, what is that you might ask well it’s the brainchild of Prudy@Butter,Basil and Breadcrumbs. When I got an email asking me to participate in this cookie extravaganza I didn’t even hesitate to say YES, of course I would love to. First of all anything for Prudy, one of my absolute Fave bloggers and a real sweetheart, secondly, who doesn’t love cookies and anything to spread the cookie love is a very good thing. I hope you all enjoy my recipe.

The season of giving (cookies) is almost upon us and I am starting to make my cookie dough in preparation for the gift boxes, Secret Santa and Holiday Parties that are planned. The other day I made a  lot of granola. Granola is one of my favorite things, and homemade is what I really like best. I was feeling creative and used my recipe for chocolate chip cookies and changed and adapted to include some granola. My homemade granola is full of really good stuff, almond meal (left after making almond milk) coconut, brown sugar, maple syrup, honey, pecans and I toast until really crisp. The resulting cookies are really nice, chewy and crisp at the same time, a little salty (in a good way) and chocolatey.  They will make a really nice addition to my gift boxes. Head over to Prudy’s now for the recipe and see all the totally dreamy recipes she has for you.

    Huge hugs to you and Nando! 😀

    I don’t think I’ve ever had or thought of using granola in a cookie – these sound fabulous Suzanne! Thanks for introducing me to Prudy!

    • It’s so good Shashi. I grind granola sometimes, a course grind and make oatmeal cookies with it instead of using all oats.. I am such a fan of granola. Thank you so much.

  16. Must pop over to Prudy’s. Partly as I’ve been developing a dried fig muffin to have something healthy first thing. Hmm, cookies with granola would work just as well!

    December 1, 2014
    • Oh, hope Thanksgiving was good for you!

      December 1, 2014
    • Oh that muffin sounds good, would love to see the recipe. I’m a big fan of figs. Thanks so much.

      December 2, 2014
      • The recipe might get posted. Or at least that was the plan for this week. Ah, the natural light – it’s so dull it’s impossible to get shots. And I’m busy with other stuff. Possibly next week!

        December 2, 2014
      • Look forward to it have been wanting a muffin!!

  19. I really can’t get enough of cookies! Should I see a doctor about it?

    December 2, 2014
    • LOL, there is no cure I’m afraid so just go with it. Thank you so much Katerina.

      December 2, 2014
  20. Thanks, the cookies just come in a right time for me, because my taste bud change bitter, it is so strange!

    December 2, 2014
    • Could be medication. I took some meds once that did that to me. All I really could eat/drink were milk shakes and ice cream. Nothing tasted good. Sweets helped. Thanks Mochi,

      December 2, 2014
      • Thanks, it is exactly the same feeling of me, non stop eating.

        December 3, 2014
  21. I want one! These cookies (and your granola) sound wonderful!

    December 2, 2014
    • I really love the granola, I have been know to sit with a spoon and the container and eat it by the spoonful. Thanks so much.

      December 2, 2014
  22. I am such a classic chocolate chip cookie lover, but the addition of granola is perfect.

    December 2, 2014
    • Me too but the granola in them is surprisingly delicious. It does not detract from the chocolate chip goodness. Thank you.

      December 2, 2014
  23. Look some yummy! What a great idea adding granola!

    December 2, 2014
  24. Adding granola to chocolate chip cookies sounds SO amazing, oh my word! I need to try that sometime. Love the ingredients of maple syrup and almond meal she used to, those are 2 of my top favorite baking ingredients. The cookies look mouthwatering and the perfect cookie to me HAS to have chocolate chips in it!

    December 3, 2014
    • Chocolate yes always. Thank you. The granola I make is just perfect in the cookies, nuts, coconut, maple syrup and really crunchy. Thanks Brandi. Just saw your post for the totally delicious ginger chocolate chips off to read that now. Thank you.

      December 3, 2014
  25. Oh my they look fantabulous Suzanne. .. 🙂

    December 3, 2014
  26. I love Prudy and I love you equally :). I recently read the recipe on Prudy’s blog. Loved it. Simple and yumm!

    December 3, 2014
  27. Went to Prudy’s site to see your recipe and I love it! I’m a granola fiend, anyway, but adding my favorite to this chocolate chip recipe is genius! Simple, yet such a fab idea! Thanks, Suzanne!

    December 7, 2014
    • Thank you so much. I also am a total granola fanatic. I eat it all the time. It’s great in a chocolate chip cookie too.

      December 7, 2014
  28. A couple of years ago I made a huge batch of granola and one day, in a cookie mood, I put it in some cookies. They were so, so good. I’m making this over the holidays for sure!

    December 13, 2014
    • Same here made a huge batch of granola and just threw some in I liked it so much I am going to do it from now on. Thanks Susan.
