Homemade chocolate chip almond butter cookie granola made with wholesome gluten free rolled oats, creamy almond butter, and dark chocolate chips. It’s easy to make, super chunky, and so addicting.
Even though this granola recipe is not technically a cookie, it tastes just like one. Imagine a crunchy almond butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookie that’s been crumbled up – mmm, is there anything better?
Seeing as this is a granola recipe, I wanted it to be much healthier than an average cookie. I decided it had to be loaded with all the good stuff – old fashioned rolled oats, ground flaxseed, sesame seeds, shredded coconut, nuts, and honey for natural sweetness.
So how is this a cookie granola? The addition of a little coconut oil, almond butter, and a very generous amount of dark chocolate chips take this granola from being just like any other to honestly one of the best granolas EVER!
I recommend making a big batch of this chocolate chip almond butter cookie granola to keep on hand at all times. It’s perfect for breakfast, a healthy snack, dessert, or even by itself.
The key to making this granola with lots of big clusters is not stirring it after it comes out of the oven. Make sure to let it cool completely without any touching or early snacking. I know, it’s super difficult to wait, but totally worth it!
I love eating this granola on top of vanilla greek yogurt with sliced bananas. It tastes like an indulgent treat, but it’s actually super healthy, protein-packed, and loaded with nutrients. I can never stop eating it, it’s just so good!
