  • 1 cup 4 ounces granola
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups 9 ounces all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 to 2 cups extra dark chocolate chips or 6 to 9 ounces chocolate chunks**
  • 1/2 cup toasted and chopped pecans.


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a food processor, grind the granola as fine as you can.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the butter and both sugars until creamy using an electric mixer. Add the egg and beat just until it is incorporated. Beat in the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl mix your flour, baking soda and salt. Stir into the sugar mixture gradually. When blended, stir in the ground granola, chocolate chips and nuts.
  • Using a generously heaping tablespoon, shape dough into large balls about 2 inches in diameter Arrange on an ungreased baking sheet spacing about 3 inches apart. Press down slightly so that the tops are flat.
  • Bake at 375 for 12 minutes (check at 10) or until edges are lightly browned and cookies appear done. Let cool on baking sheet for about 3 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Makes about 16


For the chocolate chunks, take your favorite chocolate bar and cut it into chunks.
