granola cake

I don’t normally think of granola as a baking ingredient…usually it’s just my breakfast.  Dorie likes to incorporate it into all kinds of stuff, though…there were the Granola Grabbers from years ago…now there’s Granola Cake. This actually reminds me of a chewy blondie more than cake– not just because of the add-ins, which include chocolate chunks and coconut in addition to the granola– but also because of the consistency of the batter, which is a lot like stiff cookie dough. Maybe it also reminds me of a blondie because I made just a quarter of the recipe in a loaf pan, so it’s probably thinner than it otherwise would have been. I’m down though. I like it. It’s a great snack cake. The granola contributes to the chew and it’s an interesting use of my normal breakfast cereal.

  1. This cake seems to be a hit with the group. I loved those Granola Gabbers and have made them several times. I think I will like this cake.

  2. Looks delicious…curious to try this one myself next go around.

  3. A Chewy cake! I haven’t made it yet but I’m intrigued now. Thanks for the heads up and the pic, it definitely gives me an idea of what this cake could be like.

  4. I really liked this one, and it was popular at my work too.

  5. Yes! I loved the chew of this cake!

  6. Yes, a blondie makes a good point of comparison for this. I made a full recipe and I got the same consistency. Like Dorie, I’ll make it whenever I have some granola (or muesli) around.
