Return to Cookie Recipes


2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 1/4 cups packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons Vain Vanilla
2 cups granola
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips or chunks
1/2 cup dried cherries or raisins, coarsely chopped if large


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda; set aside.

In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and sugars on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add eggs and Vain vanilla and mix well.

Add dry ingredients and mix until well incorporated. Stir in granola, followed by chocolate chips and dried cherries.

Drop by rounded tablespoons onto parchment lined baking sheets, leaving about 2 inches of space between them. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are puffed and edges are lightly golden. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
