What makes these Trail Mix Cookies a healthy sweet treat?
Hi, friends! It's Blair from The Seasoned Mom and I'm so excited to be visiting Jenny's blog with another tasty recipe to share!
Here we are at the start of another New Year. That means that many of us have set goals for a balanced lifestyle, including exercising more and eating a healthier diet. That said, there is ALWAYS room for a sweet treat!
I'm happy to report that these cookies are The Real Deal. They will NOT disappoint! Because really, what's the point in preparing a healthy dessert if it tastes like cardboard, nobody wants to eat it, and you're left scrounging through the cabinets for that last remaining bite of holiday chocolate?

Tips & Tricks:
My 2, 4, and 6-year-old boys LOVE these cookies. Like, love them so much that an entire batch disappears in a matter of days!
I even let the kids have a few of them for breakfast with a tall glass of milk, and I am satisfied knowing that the kids are fueling their bodies with wholesome super foods like nuts, seeds, oats, and blueberries.
The boys just think that they're getting a treat (and I'm not about to spill the beans and let them in on my little secret)!
The cookies also freeze well, so they're a nice make-ahead option for busy weekday breakfasts, on-the-go snacks, or late-night cookie cravings!
I hope that you will give this recipe a try! It's the best of all worlds -- a sweet gem that also happens to be incredibly good for your body. Clean eating desserts that actually taste GOOD can be hard to come by, and this one's a keeper!
