Trail Mix Cookies

Trail Mix Cookies

I’ve made oatmeal raisin cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, and ones with pumpkin spice.   In this recipe, they all combine to make one ultimate oatmeal cookie!  I mean it’s got all the goodness in one spot, perfect if you can’t decide what to make!

With raisins, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, and of course, chocolate, they are jam-packed with deliciousness.  A little bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger add a flavor profile that surpasses your typical oatmeal raisin cookie.  I could go on and on about how good these are, but I’ll let the recipe speak for itself.  Just be sure to make a big batch because they vanish fast!
