Jen's Trail Mix Cookies

Jen's Trail Mix Cookies

A great cookie for anytime of day - breakfast on the go, morning, afternoon, pre-workout or night-time snack - this nutrient packed cookie is the perfect tasty treat. With no butter, or added sugar (depending on if you include the dark chocolate chunks or not), this cookie is a healthy alternative to the traditional store-bought variety. 

In a bowl combine:

1 cup oats

1/2 cup flour of your choice (or bran if you don't need gluten free)

1/2 cup ground flaxseed

1/3 cup dried cranberries

1/3 cup dried cherries

1/4 cup dried blueberries

1/3 cup pumpkin seeds

1/4 cup sunflower seeds

1/3 cup coconut

1/4 cup skim milk powder

1 TBSP baking powder

1 tsp cinnamon

1/3 cup dark chocolate chunks

1/2 cup greek yogurt (0-2% milk fat)

1/2 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup apple sauce

1/4 cup egg whites

Bake at 375 degrees for about 12 minutes (depending on your oven). Makes about 2 dozen cookies. Enjoy!
