Graham Cracker Cookies

These graham cracker cookies are loaded with crushed graham crackers and melty chocolate chips for an amazing twist on a classic cookie.

My mama is always asking me how I come up with ideas for new recipes. And I'm all, I dunno, I guess I'm just magic?

Unfortunately, that's a lie. I don't have one magical bone in my body, which I think is crap. Why does Harry Potter get to have all the fun? Not fair, if you ask me.

Anyway, the other day I was in the mood to bake. I've also been running seriously low on blog recipes with the move and holidays both happening right around the same time. I basically took 4 weeks off of blog cooking and that's kind of insane. 

So, there I was standing in the pantry, feeling like I needed a cookie. Then I saw the oats and thought, hey, I'll make some oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Then I saw the graham crackers and I thought, nope. Forget the oats. I'm grinding up some graham crackers and turning them into cookies. A cracker cookie! A delicious, chocolate filled graham cracker cookie that makes me weep with joy.

So, that's how these happened. Now you know.

The texture is a bit different from your average cookie and the flavor really does shout graham crackers if you ask me. The melty chocolate chips are optional, except not, because chocolate. 

Just wait until you see what I do to this cookie base next time. I have grand plans. Oh, do I have grand plans.

If you liked these cookies you'll love my cookies and cream fudge and my Nutella brownies recipe!
