Chewy Granola Cookies

The recipe I make more then any other recipe, would have to be my Maple Granola. I make it about every other week, and I eat it almost every morning with my yogurt.

It’s also the “most made” recipe in the home of my girlfriend. She has a granola eating family.

Easy Granola Recipe

On Black Friday, Costco was handing out free cookbooks. It was on my list of places to go that morning.

Yes, I participate in all the black Friday frenzy. I get up way to early, go out in the freezing, dark night, and stand in unbearably long lines, as do sooo many others. Do I do it to save a buck? Hell no.

No… I do it because I like all the hustle and bustle. Call me crazy!

I went with my granola eating  girlfriend.

We shopped, we went to breakfast, we got a free cookbook!

It was in this cookbook that I found a recipe for Chewy Granola Cookies. It was submitted by Nature’s Path, using their own granola. I’m sure they are delicious made with any granola, but I made them with my homemade maple granola. And they were fantastic!

YUM! These look really good. One of my friends has a Costco cookbook from a few years back and she and her husband swear it has the best recipes.
Good luck with the eggnog! : )

Those look wonderful! I also do the hustle and bustle thing every Black Friday with my sister in law. Up at the crack of dark, out into the cold. I love it!

I used to do the early Black Friday thing, but I just can’t justify it anymore. :-( But when I did, I used to pack myself something reasonably healthy and hand-held to tide me over till I got a real meal. These would do the trick!

I wish I had this granola every morning for breakfast. Or maybe just a couple cookies and a tall glass of milk. Definitely something I’d love too.

9 Maria December 7, 2010 at 2:35 pm

These look super tasty! I can’t wait to give them a go!

this is a wonderful cookie that makes you believe you’re actually eating something healthy . . . if you just eat one!

I’m right there with you when it comes to the Black Friday sales, Megan. This year I left our home at 5:17 am clutching some of the advertising circulars, shivering to stay warm. For me, I’m an early riser – so why not get up and go shopping? Why not get up and make a big dent in my Christmas shopping list?

My attitude is if I wake up early – I shop. I never set an alarm clock. That’s just wrong. I lay my clothes out before going to bed so I’m not trying to find socks or two matching shoes in the dark. I’m usually done shopping by 11:00 am when the malls start really getting crowded.

All the cookies right now are killing me!

Have a good weekend!

LOVE homemade granola!!!!!!! But I’ll bet I’ll love these cookies even more! Can’t wait to make them for Christmas cookies when I get home!

I just had to comment on this cookie recipe, I made them today and they are loved by all. I now just have to keep everyone out of them so they can be used for lunches. With the intentions of making these I had made the Granola the other day (which my husband has proclaimed to be his favorite ever) I had to hide the granola so that there would be enough left for when I was able to get to making the cookies. Thank you so much for sharing. I appreciate your blog and recipes. I can not be sure of how I came by your blog but I am glad that I did.

Oh yum yum. I’d love to make these with my next batch of granola!
