Easy Trail Mix Cookies

Easy, easy, easy. Pretty sure “easy” has become my middle name by now. I’m a mom. I have to make easy recipes, otherwise I will drive myself nuts and not get anything done! Hence, the reason for so many baked oatmeal flavors like apple pie baked oats, birthday cake baked oats, chocolate baked oats and so many more! I have videos of how to make baked oatmeal on Instagram too! These vegan trail mix cookies are no exception to my easy recipes either. They might just be one of the easiest cookies to bake ever!

Oatmeal Trail Mix Cookie Recipe

What I love about these easy healthy trail mix cookies is the fact that we use oats as the main “flour.” I love using oat flour for most of my recipes, but for these cookies I wanted to create a little more texture. I simply pulsed my rolled oats in my Vitamix Blender until course. I basically made my own “quick oats” at home! So you can either do what I did or you can use quick cooking oats. Using oats and tapioca flour also make these cookies completely gluten-free! See notes below recipe for tapioca flour subs.

These Chewy Healthy Trail Mix Cookies will be your new go to for an easy, healthy, breakfast, dessert, or snack! They fit the bill for all your healthy eating needs! Egg-free, oil-free, vegan, gluten-free, and can easily be made nut-free!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes

Ingredients

Wet

  • 1 Flax Egg (1 Tbs Ground Flax + 2 Tbs Water. Let thicken for 5 min) (See Note 1)
  • ⅓ Cup Drippy Almond Butter (I use Georgia Grinders code “shh20”) (can sub any nut/seed butter)
  • 3 Tbs Honey or Pure Maple Syrup
  • ½ tsp Cinnamon

Dry

  • 1 Cup Quick Cooking Oats (or pulse rolled oats in blender until coarsely ground)
  • 2 Tbs Tapioca Flour (can sub arrowroot flour. 1 Tbs cornstarch should also work, I haven’t tested yet. See Note 2)
  • ½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ½ Cup Trail Mix (I used this one with walnuts, cranberries, and chocolate chunks)

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 F. and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, mix wet ingredients until smooth.

3. Fold in all dry ingredients except trail mix until well incorporated. Then, fold in trail mix.

4. Transfer to cookie sheet using a medium cookie scoop (makes 8 cookies). Flatten the cookies down (they won’t spread much when baked) and bake at 350 F. for 9-12 minutes until set on top, fragrant, and slightly golden.

5. Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to a week, in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks or freeze for 3 months!

Notes

  1. Flax Egg Substitute: I haven’t tested a regular egg for this recipe, but it should work perfectly! Please let me know if you try this!
  2. Tapioca Flour Substitute: Please let me know if you try making these cookies using 1 Tbs cornstarch. It should work well!
  3. Almond Butter Substitutes: easily swap the almond butter for peanut butter, cashew butter, sunflower seed butter, or any nut or seed butter or choice!
