Vegan & gluten-free trail mix cookies. Made with only 10 simple ingredients and ready in less than 30 minutes. These cookies are the perfect tender and chewy snack.
I have made these cookies countless times, from when I was living in the on-campus dorms last year to back at home in the summer. I like to also call these my “pantry” cookies, because when I first started making them I would literally just throw a bunch of random ingredients together from my pantry and call it good. I’ve never measured any of the ingredients until now, because I knew this recipe was worth sharing.
It is made with 10 simple ingredients, requires one bowl, and only takes 20 min. to bake.
These are really customizable cookies, so feel free to swap out ingredients of your choosing!
- Mashed banana -> sub for applesauce
- Maple syrup -> honey or agave
- Almond butter -> any type of creamy nut butter
- Gluten-free flour -> almond flour or regular all-purpose
- Walnuts -> any type of nut (almonds, pecans, hazelnuts, etc)
- Chocolate -> omit if you’d like (but highly recommend to keep it)
- Pumpkin seeds -> sub for any other type of seed
These Oatmeal Trail Mix Cookies are…
- Extremely simple
