It’s no secret that I love trail mix, and consider it a balanced meal once in awhile. And by “once in awhile,” I mean anytime my husband is on a business trip or away from home for dinner. While I have no problem cooking for just myself, I hate doing all of the dishes accrued from making a meal just for one person. Some nights, it just doesn’t feel worth it. Those nights, I turn to trail mix. I’ve convinced myself it’s a perfect meal – it’s got protein and fruit, and if you play your cards right and get the kind with chocolate in it, it’s got dessert built right into it. Truly, the perfect food.
That being said, do you know what’s better than trail mix? A chocolate chip cookie that’s packed with trail mix. These cookies are a bit more nutritious than your average “Nestlee Toulouse” version (said the Phoebe Buffay way from Friends). They’re made with oatmeal, a little bit of buckwheat flour, and some agave nectar for sweetness. In my mind, this makes them the perfect breakfast cookie. Yes, I’m recommending that you just go ahead and eat cookies for breakfast (and trail mix for dinner).
The “goodies” in these cookies are pieces of NatureBox Chocolate Ginger Bliss, which is like a trail mix made with chocolate chips, candied ginger, cashews, almonds, and dried fruit like cranberries, papaya, raisins, pineapple and apricots. Ingredients Instructions
