Baking with Jordans

Granola is usually kept for breakfast time in this house so when I received an early Mothers Day gift from Jordans containing a bag of their Super Nutty Granola along with a recipe for some cookies I was interested to give it a try. 
I did adapt the recipe a little to suit what we had in the cupboards but the result were some rather gorgeous cookies. Below is the original recipe along with my adaptations. 

Granola, Cherry and Chocolate cookies 

100g plain flour
50g Jordan's Super Nutty Granola
75g light muscovado sugar
2tsp baking powder
75g dried cherries (I used chocolate chips instead)
75g butter
3tbsp golden syrup
75g white chocolate, broken (I used milk chocolate)

Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C for fan oven), line a baking tray with baking paper. 
In a large bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, sugar, cherries and Jordans Super Nutty Granola(break any large clumps with your fingers). Melt the butter and syrup together in a pan on a low heat making sure the mixture doesn't get too hot, pour into the dry ingredients and mix well. 
Shape the mixture into 9 balls and arrange on the baking tray with space to allow spreading. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely. 
Melt the chocolate in a heatproof  bowl over simmering water and use a teaspoon to drizzle the chocolate over the cookies. Leave to set and then serve. 

I added my chocolate chips at the same point as you would add the cherries and they melted into the mixture leaving me with super chocolatey cookies that we've already made 2 batches of.
For more information on Jordan's products check out their website, there are also some lovely recipes on there to try out.
