Have you ever bought trail mix before? It’s so simple maybe you’ve made it yourself. It takes no time to throw together a mix of nuts, seeds, dried fruit and chocolate. Well, I don’t know if chocolate is standard in trail mix, but let’s pretend it is…or at the very least makes it ‘Gourmet Trail Mix’!

These cookies are loaded with all the trail mix goodies – nuts, dried fruit and chocolate. You can add a sprinkle of hemp seeds if you have them (see Notes at end of recipe) but they’re not necessary. Just depends on how hardcore trail mix you’re feeling 😉

I hope you – and your kids, work colleagues, hiking partners and whoever else you choose to share with – enjoy!

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  5. Add 20-30g water and mix till cookie dough consistency.

  7. Flatten balls with your fingers.

  9. Allow to cool on tray completely before removing
  10. Can be stored in the freezer.

Notes

Add 30g hemp seeds in Step 2 if you have them.

Can substitute cacao nibs for the dark chocolate.

Freeze the cookies before taking them out for a day of hiking or biking. This will reduce the likelihood of them crumbling in your bag.
