I just so hap­pen to click on Tik­Tok one morn­ing and low and behold, this gal was hold­ing the chunki­est, full of good stuff cook­ie that she claimed was good for your gut and helped with, you know…“going”.

I think you know by now that bak­ing is not my favorite thing to do in the World, but these seemed worth the mis­sion and they WERE!

They are dense and chewy, but crunchy at the same time and so sat­is­fy­ing! The orig­i­nal recipe was for 8 cook­ies and I eas­i­ly got 12 out of it.

Please be sure to read in the notes for a lit­tle bit of a deca­dent ver­sion that you will def­i­nite­ly want to try!

I would love to know if you make these so give me a shout if you do!


Trail Mix Breakfast Cookies

Serv­ings 12 cook­ies
Author Liz Geeslin


  • 1 cup oats, quick cook­ing or old fashioned
  • 1/​2 cup oat flour
  • 1 tsp cin­na­mon
  • 3/​4 tsp bak­ing powder
  • 1/​4 cup flaxseed meal
  • 2/​3 cup dried cran­ber­ries
  • 2 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 1/​2 cup pump­kin seeds, unsalted
  • 1/​4 cup apple­sauce, unsweetend
  • 1/​4 cup maple syrup use REAL, not Log Cabin!
  • 3 plus Tbsp milk of choice I used unsweet­ed almond milk
  • 2 tsp vanil­la
  • 3 Tbsp coconut oil I use MCT oil


  • Pre­heat oven to 325.
  • Com­bine all of the dry ingre­di­ents in a medi­um bowl.
  • Mix the wet ingre­di­ents togeth­er in a small bowl and then add to the dry mix. If mix­ture seems too dry, add a lit­tle more milk. 
  • Mix well and allow to sit for 10 minutes.
  • Use a cook­ie scoop and por­tion into 12 cook­ies on a bak­ing sheet lined with parch­ment paper.
  • Bake for 16 — 18 min­utes, remove from oven, cool on a rack and enjoy!
  • I store mine in the fridge in a plas­tic container.


For anoth­er ver­sion, sub­sti­tute mini semi sweet choco­late chips for the cran­ber­ries and add 1/​4 cup of PB2 (peanut but­ter pow­der). SO deca­dent, but good for you!
