Trail Mix Cookies

I’ve been on a cookie kick lately! So, what do you do when a friend gives you a bag of indulgent trail mix and you know you have no portion control? Make them into cookies- then have no portion control.

Trail Mix Cookies
Makes 12 Big or 20 Small Cookies
2 Cups Oats
1/2 c. Spelt Flour (Or All Purpose or Whole Wheat Flour)
7/8 Cup Stevia (Mine measures cup for cup with sugar)
15 oz. Trail Mix
4 Chewy Caramel Squares cut into fourths
1 Tbsp Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Baking Powder
3 Grinds of Himalayan Pink Sea Salt (or salt to taste)
1/4 cup Melted Coconut Oil
1 Tbsp Butter
1 Egg
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Molasses
1/2 c. Unsweetened Applesauce
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a pan with parchment paper or greased aluminum foil.
Mix together the oats, flour, stevia, trail mix, caramel pieces, cinnamon, baking powder, and sea salt.
In a bowl, melt the coconut oil and butter together (warm in microwave for 15 seconds). Add in the egg, vanilla, molasses, and applesauce and mix well. Then combine wet into dry and mix very well.
Take a tablespoon or cookie scoop and drop onto the prepared pan. The cookies will not expand or flatten much, so they only need to be about 1/2 an inch apart or so.
Bake for 8 minutes, then rotate the pan. Bake for another 5-10 minutes, depending on how hot your oven is. Remove and let cool on a wire rack completely. Enjoy!
I store mine in the fridge in an airtight glass bowl.
