Who wants a recipe for cookies that are easy to make, delicious, and mooostly healthy?
I always think buying trail mix is a good idea, but it usually ends up sitting in the cupboard for months and going to waste while I eat everything else. As much as I like the idea of trail mix, I’m just really not a trail mix girl.
My mom and I bought a bag of Trader Joe’s dark chocolate raspberry trail mix when we were travelling last month, and the majority of the bag got left in my cupboard to die a slow death. I was trying to be less wasteful and think and I landed on cookies when I was thinking of things that always seem to just disappear from my pantry.
Since I wanted these to be more snack-like than dessert-like, I tried to cut down on as much sugar and oil as possible while still having something I’d want to grab out of the cupboard. I think these are a winner!

They also keep very well! I’ve had this batch for several days now and they still taste great, although I don’t think they’re going to last much longer.
P.S. I’m not dead, I promise! I just haven’t been struck with the urge to blog for several months now so I’ve just stepped away for a bit… but I think it might be coming back
