I made seven different kinds of treats today and yesterday, but I had to share this one first. It’s my family’s favorite granola! The coconut butter gives it an amazing flavor, plus it stays together in big chunks until you want it broken down. That’s some good granola.
One of the best discoveries of my life was coconut butter. I read that you could make your own, but my food processor was too wimpy for that. Instead I bought a jar for the wince-inducing price of $13.99 at Whole Foods. My usual recipe starring this magical gooey coconut stuff is a coconut granola that’s a family favorite (coming soon, I promise!), but when Michael asked for chocolate chip cookies, I dreamed up this idea and then found a recipe that looked promising.
