These delightful little cookies are made from just 5 ingredients: almond butter, coconut sugar, eggs, trail mix, and salt! They are customizable depending on what trail mix you decide to use (or mix up yourself!), and the variations are endless.
By now, you guys know how much I love my snack bites and treats. These 5 Ingredient Trail Mix Cookies are no exception – especially since they’re so quick to whip up.
If you keep nut butter and a variety of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit on hand, you’re only 20 minutes away from a (healthier) cookie too. They are chewy and doughy, which are my favorite descriptors for a cookie!
- 1 cup unsalted almond butter
- ½ cup coconut sugar
- 2 large eggs
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup trail mix (see notes)
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Vigorously stir your jar of unsalted almond butter before the next step. It should be somewhat drippy, not dry and crumbly.
- In a bowl, combine almond butter, coconut sugar, eggs, and salt.
- Roughly chop trail mix before adding it in, and then stir it into the cookie dough.
- Using a tablespoon measure, scoop dough into tablespoon-sized balls onto 2 parchment lined baking sheets. The shape will hold during baking so feel free to flatten them if you prefer flat cookies.
- Bake the cookies for 10 minutes and allow to cool on the pan for 3-5 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool fully.
Our trail mix consisted of ¼ cup each of shredded unsweetened coconut, chopped raw unsalted almonds, raisins, and dark chocolate chips.
Substitute coconut sugar with granulated sugar if necessary.
Keep cookies in an airtight container on the counter for a day, or in the fridge for up to one week.
I have another trip this weekend as I head to explore Seattle and hang out some more with my sister. It’s her turn to be tour guide! Any foodie recommendations from my Pacific Northwest friends?
You can bet I’ll have some of these in tow for my plane travels and busy days exploring the city by foot. I will have a post next week about some of my favorite snacks to keep on hand for travel scenarios like this. This is my last weekend adventure for awhile – and I have to say, it’s a bummer considering how great I’m getting at packing a carry-on.
