To me, chocolate chip cookies are an American classic! I think it is very important to have a great chocolate chip recipe in your bag of baking tricks. I am sharing my chocolate chip recipe with you, but I am sure you can guess at this point that I have added our not so secret ingredient of granola. Give these cookies a try…I guarantee you will want more than one!
GRANOLA CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES
1 1/4 cups flour
1 cup All Natural Honey Pecan Granola
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Begin by preheating oven to 375ºF. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
Next, cream together the granulated sugar and brown sugar with the butter. Add the egg and beat until smooth (about 2 minutes).
Mix together the flour and butter-sugar mixture. Lastly, fold in the granola and the chocolate chips.
