Sometimes I’m craving a nice fluffy cookie and sometimes I’m craving a nutrient dense cookie that I can grab and go, which will tide me over until my next meal. I wanted to make these cookies taste 100% like trail mix but in an easy form to eat. Whenever I make trail mix, it goes stale because I just want a bit at a time, plus it’s kinda messy putting my dirty hands when I’m hiking or something in the bag. AND not to mention it’s hard to share trail mix because I’ll put my own dirty hands in my ziploc bag but do I really want everyone else’s hands in there? Don’t think so 🙂 .
These chewy trail mix cookies are gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan friendly and can be modified to fit your needs. For example, I used pumpkin seeds, almonds and pecans as my nut and seed mix but you could totally use peanuts, walnuts, hemp seeds etc. I’d recommend a mix of nuts and seeds to keep the texture chewy and different and that way you will have a variety of flavours and nutrients too!
Don’t forget though, these aren’t the kind of cookies you want to eat the whole batch of. They are highly concentrated with all the nuts and seeds so are great for a snack for kids and adults alike!
