Your favorite granola (here’s mine) meets shortbread cookie!

Be sure to save some 1 1/2 cups of granola from your next batch to use in this cookie recipe because OMG they are good.

I especially love that the granola I made had sesame seeds in it. Reminded me a little bit of the tahini cookies I’ve made before but crunchier and full of nuts and oats. Cookies are buttery like shortbread and they’re INSANELY GOOD. Enjoy, friends!

Ingredients are gathered. I totally forgot to put vanilla in the frame.

At least I remembered to put it in the batter!

Butter + brown sugar.

Whipped and creamed. Now we add the vanilla (see I remembered!).

Followed by the rest of the ingredients.

We are now going to form the batter into two logs.

We roll them up in parchment and create a nice long log. Parchment paper is a godsend in the kitchen.

After a few hours in the fridge, we cut the cookies. This makes them easier to manage.

Did you realize there’s no egg in the batter? This is good for those of you with egg allergies!

Freshly baked.

In my granola, I have sesame seeds, coconut shreds, oats, and walnuts. I added pecans to the mix.

I bet it would be fun to add a few chocolate chips if you’re in the mood.

Granola Cookies

makes about 36 cookies
recipe from The Cheese Board Collective Cookbook

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1ย  1/2 cups granola
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans

Using a stand mixer, cream the butter and brown sugar together in the bowl the paddle attachment on medium speed for about 4 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the granola, vanilla extract, salt, flour, and pecans. Mix just until the ingredients are incorporated.

Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and divide into 2 pieces. Using your palms, roll each piece until a log about 4 1/2 inches long and 2 inches wide. Wrap in parchment and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 350F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cut each log into 1/4 inch thick pieces and place the cookies 1 inch apart on the prepared pans. Bake on the middle racks of the oven for about 20 minutes, or until cookies are golden brown. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.

    Could you use your favorite store bought granola in place of homemade?

    • Margot

      I have made these cookies many times and often use granola from a local bakery. They are so good!

    • Tracy

      of course! As long as it’s granola, it should be fine ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Rachel

    Ooooo, these looks so good! I’ve been meaning to make a batch of my coconut pecan granola and now I have even more motivation. Thanks for sharing this, I can’t wait to have some of these with a cup of tea!

  • Libby

    My god. How dare you come into my Whole 30 and throw these cookies in my face?!
    (Just kidding, I printed out the recipe and wrote the date that I can make them in bright red marker.)

  • Janet Fazio

    This reminds me of my nana’s icebox cookie recipe. I’m going to give it a whirl with some leftover granola that has been hanging out in the pantry for too long now.

    Was trying to come up with a snacky/sweet thing to bring to a concert tailgate on Saturday and these look like just the thing!

    These are one of my greatist hits. I think my MIL requests them more than chocolate chip cookies! Have you ever tried the granola from Rustic Bakery? They used to give out samples of it at the Larkspur Farmer’s Market. I used it to make these and got hooked (I had always made my own granola before). I add cranberries to my cookies, but chocolate chips are a good idea too.

    • Tracy

      Oh! I’ve never had their granola. I’m going to try it next time. Thanks for the tip!

  • Katie

    Canโ€™t wait to try!

  • Jenna Burlace

    These look amazing!

    Hi Tracy,

    Do you think I can slice and freeze them? I do not trust myself with 36 cookies and nothing can beat freshly baked warm cookies with a glass of cold milk.

  • Neha Gattani

    Just baked these cookies and they are mind blowing. I was too lazy to make my own granola so got coconut granola from trader Joe’s. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
