Dark Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies

This is a recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens website.  They have about 41 Christmas cookie recipes in that post and most of them look pretty tasty.  I made these last night after dinner as it just seemed like a cookie night!

2 2/3 cups flour

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate pieces or bittersweet chocolate pieces (I used a whole bag of dark chocolate chips)

1 cup almond granola

1/2 cup rolled oats

1  Stir together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.  Beat butter on medium to high for 30 seconds.  Add sugars.  Beat until combined.  Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.  Gradually add flour mixture, beating just until combined.  Stir in chocolate pieces, granola and oats.

2  Preheat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheets with parchment (I skipped this).  Place dough mounds about 2″ apart on sheets.  Bake 10 – 14 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute before removing to racks to cool.

Yielded just over 4 dozen cookies.
