Granola cookies

Granola cookies

Before Christmas I made several batches of granola. The last half a jar  has sat on the work surface looking at me for the past week. I’ve been so rushed in the morning I have just grabbed a rice cake or two. So I have some granola that could do with being used up. If you don’t have any granola at the moment (Jan 2015) many supermarkets appear to have half price offers on granola or you could make your own.

These granola cookies are fantastic as a home made breakfast biscuit, with a coffee as Elevensies or with a cup of tea mid afternoon. If you want to dunk one in your cocoa before bedtime too, be my guest.

Granola cookies.

125g soft butter

150g soft brown muscovado sugar

150g plain flour

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

1 egg

250g granola

Heat the oven to 180c (makes 12 to 18 cookies)

  • Line two baking trays with baking parchment.
  • Break the snacks into small pieces of about equal size.
  • Beat together the butter and the sugar, when well combined add in the egg and whisk again.
  • Fold in the flour and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Stir in the granola and make sure it is well distributed in the mixture.
  • Take a dessert-spoon of the mixture and roll into a ball. Lay out on the baking tray. Press down a little to flatten slightly. Leave space between the spoons of mixture as they will spread as they cook.
  • Bake in the oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  • Allow to cool on the tray for a short while then transfer to a cooling rack to finish.
