Earlier this week, I came home from work exhausted…and randomly craving cookies. I had all of the ingredients for snickerdoodles ready to go, and was trying to drum up the energy to whip up a batch. But as I walked in the door, my friend Christin just so happened to be popping a batch of these amazing cookies in the oven!!!
When I asked what was in them, the answer was “pretty much everything”. They have some granola (a new ingredient for me in a cookie!), dark chocolate chips, and some delicious and colorful M&Ms. But thanks to Christin’s obsession with peanut butter, this specific batch was made with my favorite peanut butter M&Ms. Double yum.
Needless to say, these were the perfect end to a long day. Thank you, Christin!
You are sure to love the flavor combination of your favorite chocolate sweets and granola in this delicious Granola M&M Cookies recipe. So quick and easy to prepare!
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs, plus one yolk
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 Tbsp. milk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup granola
1 cup M&M’s (whatever kind you like)
1 cup dark or semisweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon until combined. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer (with a separate bowl), cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar together with a mixer on medium speed until combined. Add the eggs and yolks one at a time, beating between each addition. Then add vanilla and milk, and continue beating. Gradually add the dry ingredients until combined. Stir in granola, M&Ms and chocolate chips until well blended. Chill dough for at least an hour before you bake.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape dough into small balls, and bake for 9-12 minutes, or until slightly golden.
Recipe from my friend, Christin!
Feel free to also add in any of your favorite nuts in these as well!
Um, I’ll have 245, please.
These sound freaking amazing. Seriously.
Woah…these have got to be the greatest cookies ever made. Mmmmm! Thank you, Christin! :-)
All of my favorite food groups in one cookie!
These look fantastic! Thanks for sharing =)
Oh, I am so making these this weekend!
I’ve never thought about putting granola in a cookie, but I think this photo has totally made me want to! Delicious!
Can you tell me what size cookie dough balls and how many cookies does this recipe make?
My dough balls were about 2 Tbsp. large for this recipe, but it looks like I forgot to write down the yield when this was posted years ago. Sorry, not sure on that.
