Classic oatmeal cookies with a Vintage twist!

(Makes 12 cookies)


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup Oat My Goodness Vintage granola
  • 1 cup bittersweet chocolate chunks

To make the cookies

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F and prepare two baking sheets by lining them with parchment paper.
  • Whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl. Beat together butter, sugars, and vanilla in a medium bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until pale and fluffy, about 3 minutes, then beat in egg until combined well. Reduce speed to low, then add flour mixture and mix until just combined. Stir in granola and chocolate chunks.
  • Using an ice cream scoop, scoop equal portions of dough onto your prepared baking sheets. Make sure to space the dough at least an inch and a half apart so that they cookies will have room to spread in the oven. If using full-sized cookie sheets, you should end up with about 6 cookies per sheet.
  • Bake the cookies, switching position of sheets halfway through baking, until pale golden, about 15 minutes. Cool on sheets for a few minutes, and then transfer to racks to cool completely.
