How To Make ultimate peanut butter cookies!

    Here's how you create the magic...preheat oven to 350-degrees. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugars until mixed well. Beat in peanut butter until combined, then add egg and vanilla until well combined.

    In a large bowl mix together the flour, granola, baking soda and salt. Slowly mix in the wet ingredients following with the apples until combined. With a medium scoop, scoop dough, roll into sugar then place onto a PARCHMENT LINED baking sheet. With tines of a fork, press down slightly making an X on top of each cookie. Bake for 8-9 minutes, cookies should look somewhat soft inside when you take them out. Let cool/finish baking out of the oven for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

    Grab some milk and dig in! Make sure you find yourself some Turbinado Sugar at your grocery store. It gives the best sweet little crunch to each bite. I've seen it in quite a few grocery stores, so look a little closer down the baking isle and pick some up for these cookies.
