Sweep the Pantry Cookies

Delicious cookies filled with granola, chocolate chips and more. Just try to keep them in your cookie jar, I dare you!

Last week I was in the mood to make cookies, and had just started going through the pantry pulling things out to put in them. The result was a raving success and the entire batch of cookies was devoured in less than 24 hours. I talked to my friends on facebook and asked for suggestions on what to name these cookies. My friend Stephanie mentioned that there is a pizza place that she loves which has an “everything” kind of pizza called “Sweep the Kitchen Pizza.” She suggested I call them “sweep the Pantry.” Well since that is basically what I did when making these, I thought the name was a perfect fit.

To begin, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

In a bowl, combine 1/2 cup whole wheat, a whole cup of all-purpose flour, a teaspoon and a half each of baking powder and baking soda, 3/4 teaspoon cinnamon and a half teaspoon of salt. Stir these together and set it aside for now.

In your mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup (1 stick) room temperature butter, 1/4 cup vegetable shortening, 3/4 cup each of brown and white sugar. Beat together until smooth and creamy.

Mix in a teaspoon vanilla extract.

And then beat in 2 eggs.

Add in your flour mixture and mix until combined.

Now for the “pantry” part. You’ll need a cup and a half of your favorite granola. I used some chocolate granola that I bought in the bulk section of Earth Fare. You’ll also need a half cup of shredded coconut and a half cup of raisins.

Chop up a cup of pecans, and toss those all in the bowl…

along with 2 cups of chocolate chips.

Stir these all together until combined. Scoop by rounded tablespoons on to your cookie sheet or sheet of parchment paper. Give the cookies plenty of room. I only do 9 at a time.

Bake for 10-11 minutes or until the cookies are set and golden on the edges. Cool them in place on the cookie sheet or parchment paper for a couple minutes. Transfer them to a cooling rack and cool completely. Repeat with the rest of the dough.

I hope your cookies last longer in your house than they did in mine!

Another friend, Kelly, suggested I call these “Choco-pecan-coco-raisin-ola cookies.” I thought that was a great name too. I’ll let you decide.

  2. This is such a good idea for a recipe, and is such a good way to get rid of the ends of everything from other recipes. Definitely one to keep filed away!
