oatmeal granola chocolate chip cookies

Is everyone sick of cookie recipes? I hope not. ‘Tis the season of cookie trays. I highly recommend these.

I often go through phases of eating the same thing over and over. Some last longer than others (I’m looking at you, PB&J). This happened with my brown rice/chicken/veggie combo, pasta with quick and easy tomato sauce, and of course we can’t forget the mug cakes. Currently it’s eating a family-sized bag of green peas for dinner with butter and salt. Totally normal.

In college I had a similar love affair with Special K granola. It is amazing. I could polish off a box a day, which is definitely not what the Special K diet calls for.

So when a recent guest on a food tour told me about these cookies and sent me the recipe, I ran out and picked up a small bag of my former drug of choice, and mixed it into some cookies.

Oatmeal Granola Chocolate Chip Cookies

10 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup flour (I always do a mix of whole wheat and all-purpose)

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/4 tsp salt

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup granola

chocolate chips

Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and vanilla. Combine dry ingredients, including granola, then combine. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.

This is only half the recipe- it made about 15 medium sized cookies. Feel free to double it, I plan to.

I have another food tour today that only has 2 people signed up, which essentially makes me the third wheel for a 3 1/2 hour long date. A hungry third wheel, at that. They better have some recipes to offer up.
