Chunky Trail Mix Breakfast Cookies

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by wild flour

This is a modified version of a recipe I found on the King Arthur Flour site. I get asked for this recipe every time I share them with someone. I love to make a big batch and freeze them for later. They thaw well in the microwave for about 30 seconds and go great with a latte or cup of strong coffee in the morning (though my husband will tell you they are great any time of day!). If you don't like my "add-ins" you can substitute your choice of dried fruit, chips, oats and nuts (a total of 4 1/2 cups). Enjoy!

Yumm! These are delicious cookies! Packed with sugar, however! Would agree with the other reviewer that you could easily cut back on the amount of sugar in the recipe with the dried fruit and chips making it sweet enough. (I thought they were very tasty, though did make me feel a bit guilty.) I look forward to freezing these and pulling them out for a quick breakfast or midmorning snack. Were great warm out of the oven! I don't like raisins, so subbed pecans and some blueberry infused dried cranberries. Made for I recommend tag game.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F Spray two baking sheets with nonstick pan spray.
  2. In the bowl of your mixer combine the butter, peanut butter, brown sugar, and vanilla. Beat on medium high speed until lightened and fluffy.
  3. Add in the eggs and liquid milk, mix until well combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl once or twice.
  4. On low speed mix in the flour, dried milk, cinnamon and salt. Mix until the dough is cohesive. Add last 6 ingredients until combined.
  5. Use a 1/4 cup to measure out batter. Place 2 inches apart, slightly flattening each mound. This recipe contains no leaveners, so the cookies will only spread and rise slightly.
  6. Bake the cookies for 18-20 minutes, until lightly browned. Do not over-bake or the cookies will be dry and crumbly. Cool on cookie sheets for 5-8 minutes. Move to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
