It’s Friday! So let’s celebrate with some cookies, shall we?
For those of you that don’t know, cookies are my absolute favorite dessert. I’ll take cookies over fudge, cake, ice cream (though truth be told, I think ice cream paired with cookies it the ultimate dessert)…just about anything you can think of.
And these cookies are no exception. They’re packed full of peanut butter and chocolate chips (a winning flavor combination if you ask me!) and made with whole grain flour so they even have some staying power!
And if that wasn’t enough to convince you that these are not your ordinary cookies, I let you in on one other little secrete. They’re granola cookies made with Erin Baker’s Homestyle Peanut Butter Granola – one of my absolute favorite granolas on the market. Not only does it have big chunky clusters, but the ingredient list is filled with just 9 easily recognizable ingredients and there are only 7g of sugar per serving!
It’s perfect for topping yogurt and smoothie bowls with but even more so when added into a delicious cookie batter!
They also come together super fast and cook in just about 10 minutes (depending on your oven). I made two batches of these and froze one to have on hand when the first runs out (which with a husband that loves cookies as much as I do, we’re already well on our way to!).
