Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies For Just Another Cookie Monday
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.
Finally — a reason to look forward to Monday! Those look delicious. I sure wish i had some to treat myself after dealing with willow-oak leaves this morning, but back to my telework day now.
Huge hugs to you and Nando! 😀
Thank you Teagan, you are always a ray of sunshine and seeing you pop up in comments always makes me smile.
They look so delicious!! ❤
Thank you so much Arielle!
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.
They look delicious. I’ll be waiting for my box in the mail 😉
Ok, you got it. Thank you so much.
I only eat homemade cookies. These look fabulous. Off to Prudy’s. 🙂
Thanks Fae, they are really good. Thank you.
These are two of my favorite things combined in one cookie. Delicious. Such lucky receivers of your gift boxes! Yum!
Thank you so much Amanda, me too, granola and chocolate chip cookies are great together.
Yum Suzanne! These sound so wonderful with all that wholesome homemade granola and the choco chips! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Thank you so much!
These look delicious, Suzanne! Love this collaboration between you and Prudy…2 of my favorite bloggers. 🙂 Bookmarking this one for holiday baking…thanks!
I love Prudy too! What a sweetheart and so are you I really appreciate the sweet comment.
Anything to spread the cookie love IS a very very good thing and you are spreading it most temptingly Suzanne! YUMMMMMM!
Yes to spreading cookie love, thanks so much Azita.
These cookies look delicious. I am a lover of all things chocolate so these would be a real treat for me. I like your inventive use of granola. 😉
Thank you, chocolate with the granola in the cookies is a real treat.
They look absolutely delicious! What a perfect way to start the week 🙂
Thanks Ginger, a nice gooey crispy cookie is a great way to start the week.
I couldn’t agree more!
I am going to give these a try for all that holiday baking coming up. Thank you for sharing!
Thanks Sarah, they are so good they are going into my holiday cookie line up. Hope you like if you try.
Granola + cookies = very good idea, Suzanne! Love what you’ve done here. They look delish.
Thanks Liz. I love granola and also how it works in the cookie.
Even though it’s not Monday already, I will still love to have these delicious looking cookies – yours have everything that I want!
Thanks Jasline, it’s a great way to start the week.
Always grateful for a new cookie recipe Suzanne! These sound fabulous… and I have homemade toasted granola ready to go too! 🙂
Thank you so much Margot. Love homemade granola.
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!
Oh, hope Thanksgiving was good for you!
Yes it was really nice. Thanks Johnny.
Oh that muffin sounds good, would love to see the recipe. I’m a big fan of figs. Thanks so much.
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!
Look forward to it have been wanting a muffin!!
This recipe sounds delicious and so yummy, Suzanne 🙂
Thanks so much.
These look just about perfect Suzanne!! Wishing I had a little stack of them right now.
Thanks so much Rhonda.
I really can’t get enough of cookies! Should I see a doctor about it?
LOL, there is no cure I’m afraid so just go with it. Thank you so much Katerina.
Thanks, the cookies just come in a right time for me, because my taste bud change bitter, it is so strange!
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,
Thanks, it is exactly the same feeling of me, non stop eating.
I want one! These cookies (and your granola) sound wonderful!
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.
I am such a classic chocolate chip cookie lover, but the addition of granola is perfect.
Me too but the granola in them is surprisingly delicious. It does not detract from the chocolate chip goodness. Thank you.
Look some yummy! What a great idea adding granola!
Thank you so much. I was so pleased with how they turned out.
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!
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.
Oh my they look fantabulous Suzanne. .. 🙂
Thank you Chitra!
I love Prudy and I love you equally :). I recently read the recipe on Prudy’s blog. Loved it. Simple and yumm!
Thanks so much Sonal!
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!
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.
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!
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.
Waw, these looked so good that I made them! They made me smile,…the cookies were delightful! ooh yes! xxx
You made them Sophie. thank you so much I am so thrilled that you made them and liked them
