Spent Grain – White Chocolate Chip Cranberry Cookies

My neighbor has started brewing his own beer, which means – spent grain for me!

It’s definitely a learning process, like how to get the grain dried. Which at this point i’ve kind of left to the side and am trying to find recipes that use it wet!

This one is a combo of it all – dry the grains, process to flour, and then wet grains as well

I found it on Deschutes Brewery web site and it was definitely a keeper


  • 2/3 C butter, softened
  • 2/3 C brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ C spent grain
  • 1 ½ C flour
  • 1 Tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 C dried cranberries
  • 2/3 C white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy. Add eggs, mixing well, Combine grain, flour, baking soda and salt in a separate medium mixing bowl. Add this dry mixture to to wet mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. Stir in dried cranberries and white chocolate chips. Drop spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on wire rack. Makes approximately 2 ½ dozen cookies.

I used the med scooper and go 3 and 1/2 dozen


OMG! Amazing!
