Oatmeal Granola Chocolate Chip Cookies

img_7088

Hello Cookie Lovers–  We have an old family favorite when it comes to cookies around here.  The page in my cooking notebook that has this recipe is stained and faded from so much use.  The original recipe from a friend in Spain called for granola (like here), but over the years we’ve thrown in any flakey cereal in it’s place (no Cheerios please!)  Sometimes we added in nuts or currants or dried cranberries white chocolate chunks.  It’a a basic recipe you can mix up to suit your cookie preferences.  Just trying to say– it’s a good cookie, soft on the inside an crispy around the edges. I think it could become a favorite of your family too.

OATMEAL GRANOLA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup while sugar
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup flour
1  1/4 cup oats
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup coconut
1 cup granola
2 cups chocolate chips

With an electric mixer, beat together butter, 2 sugars and eggs until they are smooth and creamy.  Then beat in the flour, oats, salt and baking powder.  Finally mix in the coconut, granola and chocolate chips.  It will be a stiff batter.

Then drop the cookie dough by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a baking sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Will make about 3 dozen medium cookies.  Put them in a 350 degree oven for 12 to 14 minutes until they are beautifully browned on top.  Best eaten (at least one or two) hot from the oven!!

  1. Yum. Yum Yum. Rhonda, I love oatmeal and coconut and granola! Aren’t family recipes the best? I think adding spelt or whole wheat flour could be magnificent.

    Have a wonderful day. Smiles to you from me!

  2. Why is it I always seem to come across your DELICIOUS looking pictures when I’m a bit hungry?! These remind me of a cookie my grandmother used to make many many years ago, except hers had some sort of rice cereal in them. Thanks for the memory and recipe!

  3. Hi Rhonda 🙂 Ok Granola in a cookie? That pretty brilliant!! Plus since there is granola in these cookies that classifies them as breakfast food right? These cookies look great!!! Hope all is well 🙂
