This is sort of like an oatmeal raisin cookie, but better because it has granola instead of rolled oats.

  • In a medium bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar and white sugar. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking soda, stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the granola, raisins and peanuts. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.

  • Bake 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, until cookies are lightly browned around edges. Remove from baking sheets to cool on wire racks.

I didn't have any of the problems the other reviewers had with this recipe. I did add a 1/2 cup more flour and 1/4 cup less butter. I also used granola with raisins in it already so I added an additional 3/4 of that instead of raisins alone. My boyfriend suggested chocolate chips next time. I will make these again. Yum! Read More

I really enjoyed these cookies after following other reviewer's advice. I added an extra 1/2 c flour per recommendation. My granola had raisins already included so I added and extra 1/2 c of granola (Those who really like granola may want to add a full cup but reducing the amount of granola suited my tastes..still gave them a nice crisp crunch w/o being overly granola-y). I substituted 1 cup chocolate chips for peanuts. Read More

This recipe was a wonderful way to use up some granola cereal that the kids didn't like. I doubled the recipe then threw in a bit of leftover mashed banana because I didn't have any peanuts. Awesome! Read More

These were easy to make. I loved the idea of using leftover granola. My husband raves about them. Can make variations with this recipe thanks Read More

The absolute best! I also added 1/2 cup flour to this recipe plus 1 tsp cinnamon 1/8 tsp allspice & 1/8 tsp nutmeg. The granola I used had raisins and slivered almonds. I still added the 1 cup of raisins but I did not add the peanuts. I will be making these again for sure! Read More

The flavor was good but I am not sure there was enough flour or something. They spread out paper thin all over the pan and got dark very quickly. My kids tried to eat them anyway but I won't be making them again. Read More

I'm not really sure the best way to rate this as far as stars. What I made turned out AMAZING. Perfectly round cookies - delicious texture and flavor... That said however I made a few changes thanks to other reviewers' suggestions. I used 1 cup white all purpose flour and 1 cup wholemeal. I also replaced the peanuts with chocolate chips. I would definitely make this recipe again with those changes. Read More

These cookies taste good but they look terrible. I think there is too much butter and not enough flour. They are so thin it is hard to get them off of the cookie sheet. I probably won't use this recipe again. Read More
