Trail Mix Cookies


Trail mix is an on-the-go snack easily made at home - just pack with a variety of unsalted nuts and seeds for healthy fat, fibre, and protein. Add in some dried fruit for sweetness, some dark chocolate for flavour (as well as antioxidants) - and you've got the perfect snack for the 2 pm slump, camping, and/or hiking! We've taken the classic trail mix and given it a little twist - trail mix cookies!

Pair these cookies with a piece of fruit for an easy to grab weekday breakfast, or simply pack them as a snack in your little one's lunchbox!
