Prepare the following ingredients: two cups of flour, a teaspoon of baking soda, a half teaspoon of coarse salt, a cup of two sticks of butter at room temperature, a cup of packed turbinado or light brown sugar, three-fourths cup of granulated sugar, two large eggs, one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract, two cups of old-fashioned rolled oats, two cups of granola, two cups of dried cranberries or cherries.
First, preheat the oven to three hundred seventy five degrees Fahrenheit. Then, in a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Afterwards, beat the butter and both sugars until light and fluffy using an electric mixer. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until the ingredients are well combined. Beat in the flour mixture until well blended on just low speed. Stir in the oats, granola, and cranberries using a rubber spatula. Then, place the flour half-cup scoop of dough on an ungreased cookie sheet and shape into four-inch rounds. Repeat with the remaining dough on two additional cookie sheets. Bake for twenty to twenty five minutes in batches. Wait until the cookies are golden brown, rotating the pan halfway through. Let the cookies cool on the pans on a rack.
