Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies
Decadent granola cookies, soft, vegan, chocolatey and ready in under 30 minutes. They are bursting with gooey chocolate and bites of granola texture throughout. You will want to add these to your baking arsenal.
- 1 cup all purpose flour *
- ½ tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp sea salt
- ¼ cup white granulated sugar
- ½ cup coconut sugar *
- 4 tbsp plant based yogurt *
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- ¼ tsp vanilla extract
- ⅓ cup chocolate chips (I like semi sweet)
- ½ cup chocolate granola, crushed *
Preheat one to 350. Mix all the wet ingredients in a medium sized bowl. Oil, vanilla extract, yogurt or milk.
In another bowl, whisk together all the dry ingredients; flour, salt, baking soda, sugars, chocolate chips and granola. Be sure to crush the big chunks of granola. We want a nice crunch throughout the cookie not just one big cluster.
Mix the dry into the wet ingredients. Mix well, you may need 1 to 2 more tablespoons of yogurt or milk to wet the mixture. You want the mixture thick, sticky but moist enough to form cookies together. I opt to use my hands to mix this together and break apart any big clusters of granola, it also helps with mixing in the yogurt/milk.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and scoop out 1.5 inch balls of cookies. Space them about 1 inch apart. Push down lightly on each cookie so they aren't so thick and cook evenly. Cook for about 18 - 20 minutes. Let them cool before moving or enjoying.
* Use all purpose gluten free flour
*Can use brown sugar in place
*Plant milk will also work, but you will need to start with 3 tablespoons
Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days on the counter or freeze them in a ziplock for up to three months.
