Recipe by Vallie
This is a variation on Mrs. Field's Double-Rich Chocolate Cookies. Less chocolate, more crunch... makes a delicious cookie!
- 2 1⁄2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
- 3⁄4 cup white sugar
- 1 cup salted butter, softened
- 3 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- 1 cup of your favorite trail mix (I use a mix with various seeds, nuts, and a small amt of chocolate in it, the saltiness is just righ)
