Trailmix Cooks.

This is an extremely simple recipe that is a variation of my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies that I posted in late spring of this year.
My Trailmix cookie recipe is perfect for late summer when everyone is pushing in their last camping adventures and picnics with friends.
It's a hardy cookie, packed with oats, dried berries, nuts, and chocolate.
What could be better, right?
Peanut butter.
That's the answer.
And that's why I put it in these bad boys.

Trailmix Cookies!

  • 1 cup butter (room temp)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar (lightly packed!)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups quick oats
  • 1 1/2 cup trailmix (I used Country Trailmix. The mostly peanut kind, because it's what I had in the house.)
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbl vanilla
  • 1 tbl natural peanut butter
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbls milk (I used soy milk)

  1. Preheat oven to 350*F.
  2. Cream butter in mixing bowl. Add the rest of those ingredients and mix them up, baby!
  3. Place the dough in the fridge to chill for about a half hour (or however long you can keep yourself from sneaking nibbles of cookie dough, in my case...)
  4. Take a tablepoon to scoop out the dough, and help to shape it with another tablespoon.
  5. Place the shaped cookie dough on baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 11-13 mins (or more if your cookies are extra large!)
  7. Take those babies out to cool (I always take them out a little early and allow them to keep cooking on the baking sheets for a bit.)
  8. Enjoy!

Also, get ready for the giveaway!
It's coming up this week!!!
