Trail Mix Cookies

These are divine…I just kept adding ingredients that seemed to come out of a bag of trail mix.  These cookies cook down very thin, almost like lace cookies.  Make sure you really mix all of the ingredients well; otherwise you’ll have pockets of honey bubbling out the sides of the cookies during the baking phase.

Trail Mix Cookies

 

 

Ingredients

  • 1.25 cups walnut meal (use a food processor)
  • 3 tablespoons ghee or organic unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup raw honey
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried cherries (no added sweeteners)
  • 3.5 oz 72% dark chocolate bar, chopped into small chunks
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted sunflower seeds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.  Place about a tablespoon of cookie mix in a ball on the baking sheet.  Press down each ball.  Leave about an inch between cookies as these will spread when they cook.
  3. Cook for 10 minutes.  Let cool for about 10 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.  After the transfer, cool for about another 1/2 hour so that they can stiffen.
  4. Enjoy!

  4. I am new to this, what do you mean by use food processor next to the walnut meal? i have a food processor, and have never heard of walnut meal.

    • It is the same as almond meal/flour. You can take a walnut, almond, pecan, etc. and grind or chop them down to a meal or flour in your food processor. Don't chop for too long though as you will end up with a peanut butter consistency ~ LOL. You can also buy almond meal (which can be subbed in this recipe) in stores…I just make my own.

  5. the reciepe for Trail Mix Cookies calls for "organic unsalted butter". Is this paleo ok?

  6. I tried to think of a better word to describe these than divine and could only come up with heavenly. These are soo good and amazingly simple to put together. Loved the warm gooeyness after cooling them completely, with a little crunch from the sunflower seeds

  7. torontodreamer says:

    how many almonds do you need to make the amount of almond meal you need for this recipe? It looks awesome I can't wait to try them!

    • You know ~ I'm really not quite sure. I always process a big bag and then just keep the flour in my pantry. Maybe add a handful more than the actual amount at first ~ then see from there.

  8. By far, the BEST paleo cookie ever!!!!

  9. :( I couldn't get my ingredients to combine… They mixed up like granola (semi-dry and crumbly) and didn't come together in the oven. Too bad, too, because they smell like a divine Milano cookie!

  10. These are awesome! I used cranberries instead of cherries, and used chocolate chips as I had them. (Added 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and 1 tsp. vanilla.) Used Trader Joe's Almond Meal, good and reasonable. Found you on Pinterest looking for Gluten Free cookies….Thank You!

  11. will they come ok if I don't add the coconut flakes? should I substitute them with something else? my niece doesn't like coconut (she's crazy I know…) but I don't like making things they won't eat….

  13. Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff

    previous to and you’re just extremely wonderful. I actually like what you’ve acquired

    which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise.

    I cant wait to read far more from you. This is actually a great site.

  14. Hi. I am allergic to sunflower seeds (mega boo), do you think pumpkin seeds would work? Or would that lack the salt?

    • I think pumpkin seeds would be great. My sunflower seeds were unsalted, so I don't think there would be a salt issue. Maybe you could crush the seeds a little before adding them to the batter.
