My friend Ruth introduced me to Trader Joes Trail Mix cookies while I was at Snap. They were super good, I wanted to figure out a similar recipe. So, I bought all the ingredients, but I hadn’t had time to make it, when lightening struck, why not make no bake trail mix cookies….
So I just basically used my go to no bake cookie recipe, but switched up a few of the ingredients. We love how they turned out!
No Bake Trail Mix Cookies Recipe
2 cups Cheerios
1 cup old fashion oats
1 cup trail mix**
1 cube butter (1/2 cup)
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsweetend cocoa
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup peanut butter (creamy or chunky, doesn’t matter)
In a large mixing bowl combine Cheerios, oats, and trail mix and set aside.
In a saucepan over medium heat, combine butter, sugar, cocoa and milk. Stirring constantly, bring to a boil, allow to boil for 2 minutes. Remove from heat, add peanut butter and vanilla stir till combined.
Pour chocolate mixture over cereal mixture and stir to combine.
Scoop with a medium to large cookie scoop onto a cookie sheet. Allow them to cool, I placed mine in the fridge for 30 minutes and they were set! These would be fun for a day camp trip or picnic lunch!
** For the Trail mix- I used a bagged version from Walmart. If you’d rather just add the ingredients separately you will need 1/3 cup peanuts, 1/3 cup raisins, and 1/3 cup plain M&Ms (almonds were also in my mix, add a 1/3 cup if you’d like)
