Your New Favorite Granola is Here!

There’s granola, and then there’s Cookie Butter Granola and let me tell you – there’s a difference. Now you’re probably here because you have already tried one of my granolas before, or maybe you’re here for the first time because… well, cookie butter!

After months of dreaming and recipe testing, I’ve finally perfected this flavor-packed granola that’s sure to become your new favorite.

Ingredients for Cookie Butter Granola

  • gluten-free oats: I choose gluten free oats every time but you can use whatever you had on hand 
  • raw almonds, raw cashews and pecans: I love this trio of nuts for my granola, they offer high protein, lower amounts of fat and roast perfectly; use what you have on hand! 
  • pumpkin and sunflower seeds: you’ll notice a theme throughout my granolas and with good reason, you can swap these out for other seeds if you’d like; however, they add the perfect amount of crunch for me! 
  • unsweetened coconut: adds a new texture to the granola
  • cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg: adding to the warm and tasty cookie flavor, rounding out this granola perfectly
  • salt, vanilla: enhances all the flavours 
  • olive oil, maple syrup, and homemade cookie butter: the essentials to your granola’s flavour and what will bind everything together for maximum clumping

How to Achieve the Biscoff Cookie Flavour

The secret to that beloved Biscoff flavor lies in the combination of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and, most importantly, the homemade cookie butter. This blend of spices creates a warm, comforting taste profile that, when combined with the richness of the cookie butter, makes each bite of granola a delightful experience. 

How to Make Cookie Butter Granola

Creating this granola is a simple process that involves mixing dry ingredients with a luscious combination of olive oil, maple syrup, and homemade cookie butter, then baking until perfectly golden and clumpy. The result? A crunchy, clustery granola that’s irresistibly delicious.

*Pro Tip!* Pressing the granola firmly onto the pans before baking is the key to creating those large, satisfying clumps. Just make sure the layer isn’t too thick to ensure even cooking and perfect clumping.

What to Serve This Cookie Butter Granola With

This granola is perfect as a topping for ice cream, mixed into yogurt, or simply enjoyed by the handful. Its versatility makes it a great addition to your breakfast table or as a midday snack. It’s my new favorite breakfast and I’ve been pairing it with my hemp cashew milk.

    1. Hey Gayle, yes you can however it would really defeat much of this recipes purpose as it is a cookie butter granola! I have many other granola recipes that perhaps will fit your desires better. However give it a try if you’d like!

  1. I’d love to try this. So exhausted and unmotivated lately though. I hope to try it soon though. I baked bread today for the first time, so hell!, I know I am fully capable. ❤️

    1. Hey Bethany, I am excited for you to try this recipe, the cookie butter could probably taste amazing on the freshly baked bread as well!! Allow yourself grace in the moments you’re feeling unmotivated! It happens to the best of us 🙂

  2. This looks so good! I can’t wait to try it. Unfortunately I am allergic to coconut. What can you suggest as a good alternative? Thanks

    1. Hey Cy, you could always omit the coconut and put any other ingredient in its place or nothing at all. You could also increase the amount of nuts or seeds in it’s place if you wanted to.

  3. Hi! I have just finished my first batch. Still cooling down, but my kitchen already smells absolutely divine… I can’t wait to try it! 🤤 Also, warning, the cookie butter is addictive! Thank you so much! ❤️ PS – the only ingredient I left out was the coconut, because I hate it… but I think that the granola still looks and smells wonderful!
