These chocolate pomegranate cookies have a fantastic granola taste and, even though they’re small, they’re substantial enough that one is quite satisfying. This recipe makes 40 cookies and if you lack that self-control like I do, you’ll want to freeze a bunch–thaw them on the countertop or zap them in the microwave for a few seconds before eating.

I love to bake, but I don’t do it unless there is a party or some other event that I can bring them to, because I have no will power around baked goods either! Thanks for this recipe, great photo!

They are tricky to find! Trader Joe’s used to always have them, but I think they might be seasonal? But cranberries, cherries, and raisins all work well in these cookies too. 🙂
