Granola Cookies with Chocolate Chips & Coconut

 Granola Cookies with Chocolate Chips & Coconut

This recipe was inspired by Cathy at Wives with Knives.  When I saw granola cookies on her beautiful blog I knew I would be making them soon.  I adapted the recipe to work with what I had on hand and they turned out terrific. I loved the crunch the granola gave to the cookies, the sweetness from the coconut, and the richness of the semi-sweet chocolate.  These granola cookies with chocolate chips & coconut were a huge hit with the kids for their after-school snack and the guys that are here redoing our landscaping loved them too.  I split one with a friend and we both thought they were FANTASTIC.

Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl.  Set aside.

Beat together the sugars, vanilla, and butter with a mixer until creamy and smooth.  Add the egg and mix until well combined.  Slowly add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until mixed.  Add the granola, chocolate chips, and coconut and mix until just combined.  Scoop spoonfuls of dough onto the baking sheet about 1 inch apart.

    1. Amy,

      The granola gives them a nice crunch but they are soft and chewy. I hope this helps.

      Cheers,
      Pam

  1. I have tried oatmeal chocolate chip cookies with the kids but not granola chocolate chip. These looks fun and I love that there is some coconut in there. I will give these a try, as my kids never complain when there is a new sweet in the house.

  2. I managed to resist a batch of brownies I made today and now you’re tempting me with these?!?!? All I want to do is get in the kitchen and bake them!

  3. Hi Pam – I’m happy that your family liked this recipe. It’s one we never get tired of. I love that it is so easy to change it up a bit by adding whatever I have in the cupboard. Thanks so much for the link.
