Homemade Granola Cookies

I recently did some trail volunteer work at a local park. It was a group volunteer day and I wanted to take along some treats to share. Cookies seemed like a wise and easy treat to bring along. Granola cookies felt the best idea for a group of hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.

These are an easy and hearty cookies. Make them big for folks that are going to be hungry or make them small for buffet tables. They freeze well too so don’t be shy in  making a double batch and freezing them for later.

Options for Customization

Granola is the key ingredient here. Use something tasty and lightly sweetened.

My peanut butter applesauce granola works perfectly.

Something purchased will work too, just choose something lightly sweet and full of flavor, like these options from Bob’s Red Mill.

Use regular chocolate chips for big cookies, mini chips for smaller ones. Use dark, white, or milk chocolate.

For a tasty dessert, that is as at home on the trail as they are on the buffet table bake up some of these tasty and hearty granola cookies.

Add ½  Cup of chopped nuts or dried fruits if there aren’t any already in the granola.
