Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Cookies (3 ingredients)

3-ingredient cookies? Yes, please.

I saw these cookies in Food and Wine and knew I’d make them faster than you can say dark-chocolate-and-peanut-butter. With only three ingredients (two of them being my aforementioned favorites), they were so easy to throw together.

The recipe uses granola ingeniously — first as a flour substitute (when ground in the food processor) and second for added crunch and texture. I took out some of the extra raisins in my granola as I like my chocolate/PB marriage to be untainted.

The result is a sandy, shortbread-like cookie bursting with flavor and texture. Perfect with a tall glass of milk!

(I found the chocolate peanut butter in my organic section under the brand name Peanut Butter & Co.)

Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Granola Cookies (3 ingredients)


2 cups granola with nuts and dried fruit

1 cup dark chocolate peanut butter (see note above)

1 large egg

Pinch of salt


Preheat oven to 350° and line cookie sheet with parchment of silpat.

Remove the dried fruit from 1 cup of the granola. (You can add that fruit to the second cup of granola if you wish.) Transfer the fruit-free granola to a food processor and pulse until finely ground; transfer to a medium bowl. Add the peanut butter, egg and salt. Using an electric mixer, beat the mixture at low speed until smooth. Add the remaining fruit-filled granola and beat the cookie dough just until combined. Dough will be dry but should stick together when rolled. (Add a little extra PB if it's not sticking.)

Roll the cookie dough into 12 balls and arrange them on the prepared baking sheets. Flatten the balls with the tines of a fork to 3-inch rounds. Bake for about 15 minutes, until the cookies are set in the centers. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets.

Makes one dozen cookies.
