Healthy Trail Mix Cookies

Healthy Trail Mix CookiesIf you love sweet and savory together, and if you love trail mix, have I got a cookie for you!  I’m so in love with this latest creation!  It’s all good ingredients in these babies, and let me tell you they are super addicting. 🙂  It’s almost like a healthier version of a monster cookie, but better.  Ok, so that’s my opinion, but since I’m the one making the cookies, it’s the only one that matters right? 😉  They are chuck full of all the good stuff for some good energy like: peanut butter, oats, whole wheat four, peanuts, pretzels, raisins, m&m’s, honey, etc……  These would make the best after school snack or even be great to take along on a hike or something.

So let’s get down to business.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Mix all your dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer, mix you honey, molasses, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla.  Then add in all the trail mix ingredients.

Give that a couple turns of the mixer to incorporate it all a bit, then add you dry ingredients that you got ready earlier. Mix completely, but don’t mix too much.  Get a baking sheet ready with some non stick spray or parchment paper.  Scoop out about 1 inch sized balls and place 12 on a sheet evenly spaced.  Then, for best results, push down the dough slightly to flatten out the cookie.  Since they are pretty dense, they don’t really spread in the oven, so I help them out and give them a little smush.  ðŸ™‚  Bake in your preheated oven for 12-13 minutes.
