Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Almond Granola Cookies

I know, that’s a mouthful… but my mouth has been full of these cookies all week so trust me, they’re worth it. These little guys are the perfect balance of sweet and salty, with a nice granola crunch. They’re also pretty thin and small, so you don’t have to feel bad about eating 3-4… at least that’s what I’m telling myself.

What you need:

  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/4 cup chocolate granola (I use Whirlybird)
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon flax seed
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate almond sea salt bar, finely chopped (I use Endangered Chocolate)
  • Pinch of salt

What to do:

  1. Make a flax egg by combining the 1 tablespoon flax seed with 3 tablespoons water. Set aside.
  2. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, oats and granola in a small bowl. Set aside.
  3. With a hand mixer or standing mixer, combine the sugars, coconut oil and vanilla extract. Slowly add in flax egg.
  4. Slowly empty the small bowl of dry ingredients into the mixer, stirring to combine. Fold in chocolate.
  5. Place dough in the fridge for 45 minutes to firm.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  7. Form dough into small balls, with a spoon or scoop, placing on parchment paper baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Remove to cooling rack after 1-2 minutes cooling on baking sheet.
  9. Enjoy!!

These are great crumbled over nice cream, with milk, or on their own!
