Granola cookies

While sometimes it’s lovely to labour over a recipe – taking your time to weigh, sift, whisk, beat, fold… lick the bowl – there are other times when time is precious and you just want something NOW. And that’s when these 3-ingredient, 15-minute biscuits come in.

These clever cookies are mainly made up of ground granola, which saves on individual ingredients and transforms granola into a sweet snack. Great for whenever you’re short of baking supplies. Use homemade or shop-bought granola. If the latter, seek one with natural ingredients, low sugar, and honey as the sweetener.

This recipe can easily be doubled to make a bigger batch.

Makes 9 small cookies

You will need:


  1. Grease a baking tray and heat the oven to 180°C/350°F/gas 4.
  2. Blitz up the granola until it resembles breadcrumbs, then tip into a large bowl with all of the other ingredients and a pinch of fine sea salt. Mix well until combined, then add any reserved fruit back in and give it another mix.
  3. Shape the cookie dough into smooth balls, then flatten slightly and lay on the baking tray. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown all over.
