Granola Nut Chocolate Chip Clusters

These are similar to the famous Planet Organic Cosmic cookie, but I think much better!! I have adapted this cookie to include our granola in the recipe. This cluster has more nuts and seeds than the original cookie and so making it much more yummy! I also added cashews and pistachios but feel free to substitute any nut that you wish. This is a great grab and go snack, much better than any store bought granola bar!!

5 Cups Granola (See recipe from or store bought

2 cups flour (All purpose or whole wheat)

1 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon Kosher salt

1 3/4 cups dark chocolate chips

1 1/4 cups raisins

½ Cup Cashews

½ Cup Pistachios or whatever nut of your liking

1/4 cup water

1/4 cup blackstrap molasses

3/4 cup canola oil

1 cup milk


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Line two baking trays with parchment paper.

Combine dry ingredients : from granola to pistachios

Combine wet ingredients: from water to milk.

Stir dry and wet together until just combined.

Drop cookie dough on baking sheet, I used a small scoop approximately 2 Tablespoons per cookie

Gently flatten cookies.

Bake for 15- 20 minutes depending on the size of your cookie or until lightly browned

Makes approximately 40 Cookies

Combine dry ingredients.

Combine wet ingredients.

Combine wet and dry ingredients, stir gently.

I could eat this by the spoonful.

Drop onto parchment lined baking sheets with a small scoop.

Flatten cookies a little with your hand.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown.

cool on wire racks.

Makes approximately 40 cookies depending on the size you decide to make.
