Serving size 18-20

Trail mix is a healthy snack to take with you on the go, but if you've gotten tired of your usual mixes, it's time to shake things up and enjoy this healthy choice in a nutritious cookie form.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 2/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup almonds, halved
  • 1/3 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/3 cup pumpkin seeds (pepitas)
  • 1/3 cup dates, chopped
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 2 tablespoons ground flaxseeds
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup pure maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, rolled oats, almonds, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, dates, cranberries, flaxseeds, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the egg, maple syrup, canola oil, applesauce and vanilla.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and stir until just combined.
  5. With a large spoon, drop scoops of the dough onto a non-stick baking tray, about 1 inch apart. Flatten with a fork. Use your hands to shape the cookies into a rounder look for a more even appearance.
  6. Bake in the oven for 10–12 minutes or until the bottom edges turn a light golden brown.
  7. Remove the cookies from heat, and transfer them to a wire rack to cool.
