Granola Cookies with Chocolate and Roasted Almonds


These turned out kind of dry, but the type of dry that just makes you want to pair it with a glass of milk.

Granola Cookies with Chocolate and Roasted Almonds

adapated from Bake or Break


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup unsalted butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1 large egg, at room temperature

1/2 tablespoon vanilla extract

1 & 1/2 cups granola (I used barenaked granola that i broiled in the oven to make it crunchier)

1 cup sliced roasted almonds

3/4 cup coarsely chopped chocolate


Combine flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl.  Set aside.  In a large bowl, beat the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth (about 2 minutes).  Mix in egg and vanilla, beating well. 

Gradually add dry ingredients, mixing until thoroughly blended.  Stir in granola, almonds and chocolate.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookies sheets.  

Leave several inches between cookies.  Refrigerate for 20 minutes.  

Preheat oven to 350 degrees farenheit.  Bake 12-14 minutes.  Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes.
