Craving an on-the-go treat? These Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Trail Mix Protein Cookies are the perfect accompaniment to your everyday snacks! They’re nutrient-dense, fiber-filled, and pack a protein punch. Keep reading below to get your hands on this delicious and nutritious recipe.
2 tbsp. nut or seed butter (we used sunflower seed butter)
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
In a large bowl, combine all the dry ingredients together.
In a separate smaller bowl, mix together the wet ingredients until fully incorporated.
Pour the wet mixture into the dry mixture and mix with a wooden spoon until fully incorporated, about 1-2 minutes. Don’t worry about over mixing, this batter is resilient! Make sure there are no dry pockets in the batter before continuing.
Use a ¼ cup measuring scoop to portion the cookie dough and place cookies on the lined baking sheet. Press the top of the cookies to flatten slightly and press the sides to reform the edges. You want the cookies to be about 1.5 cm – 2 cm thick (about the width of your thumb). The dough will be sticky so keep a small dish of water near by so you can wet your hands before handling the cookies.
Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom.
Allow the cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack. Cool completely before eating!
Store cookies in an air-tight container in the fridge or freezer (use parchment to separate the layers of cookies when freezing).
