Easy Granola Cookies Recipe

I love to make cookies and since we had a cool and rainy day yesterday, I spent some time in my kitchen baking. These cookies are a nice alternative to oatmeal raisin cookies.

Granola Cookies Recipe

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
1 cup all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 cups granola with raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets or line them with a silicone baking mat.

In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar for 4-5 minutes. Add the eggs (one at a time) and beat for 2 minutes. Stir the flour and baking powder together and add to the other ingredients in the large bowl. Beat until fluffy. Stir in the granola.

Drop by the tablespoonful onto the lined cookie sheets. Bake for 11-12 minutes or until lightly browned.

*tip* I like to line my cookie sheets with the Tupperware Silicone Wonder Baking Mats. My cookies don't stick and slide off easily plus they are evenly baked.

What a great easy granola cookie recipe. I love oatmeal cookies but using granola is a nice change of pace.
