  • 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, chocolate chips and peanuts. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets, about 2 inches apart.

Great recipe but I reduced the butter(used margarine) to 3/4 cup and DO NOT grease the pan--I think this is why everyone's cookies are coming out so flat. I also used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup regular flour. Instead of 1 cup chocolate chips I used about 2/3 cup chocolate chips and 1/3 cup raisins and added no nuts (my granola had nuts). I found they only need to bake for 10-12 minutes. YUM! Read More

Only ok. This recipe probably depends on which granola you use. My granola was fairly powdery and mostly oats maybe something sweeter or crunchier would be better. As it was the cookies were like somewhat fancy chocolate chip cookies. They were totally flat but had the normal cookie texture. Leave plenty of space between cookies on tray and don't push down at all just drop. Followed recipe exactly except I acidentally almost melted the butter instead of just softening. Only took 10 minutes to bake would have burnt by 15 minutes. Read More

Absolutely perfect cookies with a few little changes: Used 3/4 cup of margarine instead of 1 cup butter. Increase flour to 1 3/4 cups (equal portions of flour and granola) and drop by rounded teaspoon without flattening cookies. I also used 1/4 cup of Skor chipits and 3/4 cup of chocolate chips instead of the full cup of chocolate chips. 12 minutes was just the right timing. I will definately be making these again! Read More

Fabulous! I didn't have any unsalted peanuts so I used some chopped cashews and almonds which were already in my homemade granola. Tasted great! Eat warm out of the oven with a glass of milk. Note: I only needed about 10 - 11 mins. to bake. Thanks for a great recipe "K"! Read More

Wow. These are AMAZING. The taste is absolutely fantastic. We used pecans instead of peanuts but everything else was exactly the same. The granola we used was nice and chunky. The cookies were baked to perfection at 13 minutes. Like another reviewer said they are chewy and crunchy at the same. Absolutely delicious! This recipe is a total keeper. Read More

My first tray of cookies came out flat like a previous reviewer described. So I added 3/4 cup flour to the remaining batter. The rest turned out rounded. I took these cookies to work and most everyone liked the flat ones the best! If I make them again I will add only 1/4 cup flour to the 1 1/2 cups already called for. Read More

Good flavor. A little sweet even though I cut the sugar down a 1/4 C. I think I will add 1/2 C more flour next time. After the first batch I turned the oven down to 350 and baked for only 10 minutes. The cookies were too thin and started to burn at 12 min at 375. Read More
