These Trail Mix Cookies brought to you by are a Paleo-friendly, gluten-free treat packed full of your favorite trail mix goodies! Pack them for your lunch or your next outdoor adventure.

Trail Mix Cookies

Let's talk Trail Mix Cookies! These are exactly what they sound like: a cookie that joined forces with our favorite hike-friendly food, trail mix. Trail mix is usually a mixed bag of nuts, dried fruit, maybe a little chocolate, and something crunchy. These cookies are a new way to take nutrition on the road. By utilizing the AWESOME dried food options from my friends at, we were able to come up with a cookie that will keep you (and your little ones) energized without the overuse of sugar or other refined starches.

We're using cashew flour for the base of these cookies, making them a little more lightweight than your typical nut flour-based baked good. That being said, feel free to swap in whatever nut flour you have on hand. The cookie batter is combined with all the trail-mix favorites: dried blueberries, cocoa nibs, nuts (we used tiger nuts for extra fiber), and unsweetened coconut chips. FEEL FREE to add in a few real-deal chocolate chips…I won't tell.

The cookie batter is sweetened simply with a little honey and leans on a couple of eggs for binding.

These trail mix cookies are slightly sweet, crunchy, and very travel-friendly. Pack a few in your lunch or for your next big hiking adventure!

  1. How creative! These cookies are such a great idea and look so good! Love it!

    1. Cassy says:

      Thanks, Melissa!

  2. Faye says:

    What is the reason for baking all of the cookies one at a time? I’ll be in the kitchen all day baking one cookie at a time x 3 dozen!

    1. Cassy says:

      Good catch, Faye! We’ve updated. This is a normal cookie recipe in that you’ll scoop and place the cookies on a baking sheet to fill it out.

  3. Keith O. says:

    These look awesome. My wife and I are trying to transition to a more Paleo friendly diet and your recipes look enticing! Can’t wait to try them!

    Hi there!

    Couldn’t find cashew flour and almond flour was too expensive for my budget, so I ended up going with a one to one gluten free flour by Red MIll. Was a dry batter so I added another egg, some more oil, and cup and two thirds of iconic chocolate protein shake. I’m waiting for them to be done still, but they smell great!

    Long comment, but figured I’d share my trial and error in case anyone else ended up in my boat. 😛

    1. Cassy says:

      I’m so glad y’all like them, Maria!

  6. Kristen Kapur says:

    Any idea if these would work with tigernut flour? I love using that flour for all its great properties and it’s naturally sweet Tasting too!

    1. Brandi Schilhab says:

      We haven’t tried it, Kristen, so we can’t say whether or not it’ll work. If you try it, please let us know how it went!
