Trail Mix in a Cookie

Welcome to Tuesday!! We’re one day closer to my favorite weekday: Mod Fam day, a.k.a Wednesday in layman terms.

Not sure if you all know this, but trail mix is one of favorite foods! So much so, it even had something to do with the name of my blog! My love for trail mix got me thinking of how delicious a trail mix cookie would taste. I added some key components of trail mix (dried fruit, nuts and chocolate) and a few “heath nut” items (flax seed and wheat germ) to a standard oatmeal cookie and sure enough, it tastes amazing.. This batch turned out perfectly – crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside!

If you have a trail mix lover in your life, I’d highly recommend trying these cookies!

*Tip: I don’t have wire racks so I just cool my cookies on paper towels on the counter. Works like a charm. :)

This is just a little precursor of what’s to come over the next 12 days – holiday cookies galore! Get excited and in the meantime, send me your favorite holiday cookie!
