Ingredients you need for Trail Mix Cookies

This recipe for Healthy Trail Mix Cookies is super versatile and you can easily substitute almost any ingredient and make these cookies 100% according to your taste. 

Oats - Use old fashioned oats or whole wheat oats.

Seed and Nut Mixture - Use your favorite trail mix. We used a homemade mixture of almonds, walnuts, sesame seeds, and pumpkin seeds. However, we sometimes substitute with chia seeds, sunflower seeds, flax seeds, almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, or other nuts too.

Dried Fruits Mixture - Use whatever you have at hand. We used a mixture of raisins, dried cranberries, and dried apricots. Feel free to substitute with other dried fruits. 

Dried apples - are another great way to naturally sweeten these cookies. We used Kotanyi apple chips that only has one ingredient: apples.

Chocolate chips - Use milk chocolate or dark chocolate. We prefer dark chocolate chips, but simply chopped chocolate will work too.

Honey - we always use floral honey or acacia honey, because it has a subtle honey flavor. It's also a great way to naturally sweeten these cookies.

Flour - in this recipe we used all-purpose flour but spelt flour or whole wheat flour will work very well too.

Baking powder - it will help these cookies to rise slightly while baking. Feel free to substitute with baking soda.
