Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 15 cookies


  • 7 Tablespoons butter softened
  • 6 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose or white wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 cup granola without fruit or nuts
  • 6 Tablespoons dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds
  • 1/4 cup chopped cashews
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons ground flaxseed


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper or silicone liners.
  2. In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment affixed, beat the butter until fluffy. Add both sugars and beat for another two minutes. Add the egg, salt, and vanilla and mix until well-combined.
  3. Add the flour and mix just until mostly combined. Add the granola, cranberries, nuts, coconut and flaxseed, and mix until well-combined, making sure to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl as needed.
  4. Scoop golf ball-sized rounds of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets and flatten slightly with your fingers.
  5. Bake until the bottoms are lightly browned and the tops are still slightly shiny, about 10-12 minutes. Let the cookie sit on the baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.
