Trail Mix Cookies

IMG_1311

These were made out of necessity this weeks, because some how someone brought some store bakery (milk, butter, sugar, wheat, no good) …oatmeal cookies in the house, and I had to stare at them all day, and I finally had to throw my hands up and say thats it, Im making cookies! that I can eat !!!

This stared as an oatmeal cookie search and ended up being a trail mix cookie, because I kept throwing extra stuff in !!

This was inspired by Happy Heathy Life.. lunchbox.com <;— click here for full instructions

Below is the changes I made to the recipe

dry:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup gluten free gluten free flour*
1/2 cup of evaporated cane juice

2 Tbs brown rice syrup (or other sweetener)

3 scoop of stevia powder (optional)

1 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp baking powder

wet:
2 Tbsp chia seeds ground

6 Tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 banana, mashed
1/3 cup peanut butter
1 cup applesauce
1 tsp cider vinegar

fold-in:
1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1/3 cup vegan chocolate chips

** update** When I ran out of room on my cookie pan, I put the rest of the batter in a mini bread pan, and it made a perfect fluffy trail mix loaf !!
