Fish Mama’s Trail Mix Cookies

In my quest to cook healthier I decided to try the Trail Mix Cookies that Fish Mama posted today. I was wanting to make something for dessert tonight but did not know what. When I saw these on her blog this afternoon I decided to give them a try.

Now, they are still not super healthy. They are still a cookie, but they have quite a bit of whole wheat in them and also 2 cups of oatmeal. So, I thought it was a good start to a healthier cookie. I did not have trail mix so I used some nuts and raisins instead. I also used about 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. I may try it next time using 1/2 butter and 1/2 oil.

I will definitely be making these again. My whole family thought they were very good. No one could even tell they had whole wheat in them.
Thank you Fish Mama for sharing.

    So glad these worked for you! I also have a version with reduced fat and flax seed meal to compensate. But since I didn’t make those last night, I didn’t think it fair to post it. I add it to my blog or email it to you if you’re interested.

    I updated the post with the healthier version. Feel free to tweak away. Let me know how it turns out.

    Those look yummy though I’m not a fan of raisins in cookies. I have a recipe that I shared on my blog for chocoloate chip cookies that uses oatmeal but it’s first put through the blender so it’s more like a flour. Then we substituted some wheat flour and organic sugar in it. THey were amazing.

  4. You could leave the raisins out or just use a regular trail mix. I will have to check your recipe out. Thanks.
