Peanut Butter Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies

Peanut Butter Pecan Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies

I spent a lot of yesterday in the kitchen, sometimes I just want to cook and bake all day long!  I made Balsamic Bruschetta, Caprese Pasta Salad, Colleen’s Overnight French Toast and these little guys which are delicious by the way.  It was a good day.  (The recipe for these cookies comes from Betty Crocker.)

1 cup butter, softened

1 cup creamy peanut butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups Bisquick

1 3/4 cups granola cereal

1 cup milk chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

1  Heat oven to 350.  Mix butter, peanut butter, sugars and vanilla until creamy.  Mix in remaining ingredients.  Drop or scoop batter onto cookies sheets.

2  Bake 9 – 11 minutes or until edges are light golden brown.  Cool 3 minutes before removing from sheets.

(The first batch I made didn’t spread while baking at all so I had little round balls for cookies so for the rest of the batches I dipped the bottom of a glass in sugar and pressed the batter down lightly so they would be more cookie shaped.)

Yield: about 5 1/2 dozen cookies

  1. We did a lot of food prep/cooking at my house yesterday as well. A relaxing day making quiche, pork chops, tofu, overnight oats, and bean sprout/arugula/avocado salad. I love making tons of food on Sundays! Your cookies look delicious, love anything with peanut butter and chocolate 🙂

  2. Hey, I also blog and I just stumbled across you blog. I too love to bake and I love this recipe that seems very autumnal which was just what I was looking for, a autumnal bake! I love your blog. Keep up the great work! 🙂
