I taunted you with this.
And I’m sorry I’m not sorry, because this stuff is so good.
I’ll warn you, it’s simple, but it does use ingredients that you might not necessarily have in your house. It’s not vegan, it’s not gluten free… but it’s delicious. So if you’re ok with that… then keep reading.
It’s also pretty low calorie for granola. So at least that’s a perk. Right? I mean, that’s an excuse to put this on top of… everything.
Cookie Dough Granola
- 1 1/2 cups whole grain oats
- 1 tbsp Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter*
- 2 tbsp Sugar Free Vanilla Syrup**
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- Chocolate chips (optional)
*If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s in your area, look for Biscoff spread. If you absolutely can’t find it… you can use almond butter… but it won’t taste quite like cookie dough
**You can also use vanilla + honey, but you’ll have to play around with the proprtions a little
This granola is also super easy to make. Just stir up your ingredients (except the chocolate chips) and spread onto a cookie sheet. Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees, stirring occasionally. Once it’s slightly cool, you can add in some chocolate chips. I skipped the chocolate chips, because I was trying to keep the calories + fat down a bit. If you don’t add chocolate chips, a 1/4 cup serving of this stuff has less than 100 calories. Not bad for granola. (And this is a good thing, since I promise, the batch won’t last more than a few days…)
And now, because I love you all so much, and I truly believe that you’ll love this granola…
I’ll send one lucky person a batch of this stuff.
(*I can only ship to the US, sorry international folks!*)
All you have to do, is leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite type of granola is.

Please keep in mind that this granola is not gluten free or vegan (but it is delicious).
