Trailmix Cookies

These little cuties are another one of those cookies I have made for years but haven't actually posted or shared. They are based off of the same oatmeal cookie base that I make for all my favorite cookies... It's pretty simple, but can be made with a whatever fillings you got or want. These specific trail mix cookies can be easily made with your already pre-made or bought trail mix, or you can whip up a little mix of your own to add in. They are perfect this time of year for all those end of summer trips and adventures. They are good for breakfast lunch and dinner (and dessert ;) But the key factor is that you MUST make them to enjoy them :)

Make a big batch and freeze them. They are super easy to pull out and take on the go. When I make these I feel like you can pack in so many flavors and nutrients that you forget it started out as a cookie base- but I like to think of all my cookies as a little love from heaven. So just sharing that love with you xoxo Much love and HAPPY baking!
 Trail Mix Oatmeal Cookie Recipe
{gluten, dairy, egg and soy-free, VEGAN}

1 cup certified GF rolled oats
1 cup of certified GF oat flour
1/3 cup of tapioca flour
1/3 cup rice flour
1/3 cup of potato starch
1 ts. of sea salt
1/4 ts. of baking powder
1 1/2 ts. of baking soda
1 cup of coconut palm sugar
1/3 cup of date puree paste (or applesauce)
1-2 TB  of maple syrup
1/2 cup room temperature or very soft/warm coconut oil OR you can sub in
Organic Palm Oil Shortening or use a mix of both to make 1/2 cup

add last: 1 heaping cup of your favorite trail mix combo or....
1/4 cup of shredded coconut
1/2 cup of raisins, dried cranberries or dried chopped dates
1/2 cup of mixed pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, possible nuts
optional....add in a sprinkle of some dark chooclate chips ;)

Mix all the dry ingredients together first, then add the wet and mix well and add the oil and mix into a sticky dough. Use a TB to spoon the dough into balls onto a baking sheet. For best results one your baking sheet with parchment paper. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 15-18 minutes or until your desired crispy cookie liking. Let the cookies cool for at least 15 minutes before moving to platter because they will start to crumble if they are still warm. Store in a dry place or in the fridge for an extended period of time. ENJOY!

Much love as always xoxo
