Gluten free trail mix cookies are higher in protein than traditional cookies, providing you with extra energy. Enjoy their crisp edges and chewy texture on long trips in the car, on hikes, or while camping in the woods, to name a few places. Use white, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate chips. Make these cookies corn or tapioca-free.
1/2 cup dried fruit (cranberries, chopped cherries, chopped apricots, etc.)
1/2 cup chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds)
1/4 cup white or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper; set aside.
Cream the butter and sugar in the bowl of your electric mixer using the paddle attachment, if you have one. Beat on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes using a high-powered mixer, longer for lower powered.
Add the flour blend, almond flour, and baking soda to a small bowl and mix to combine; set aside.
Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing on medium speed until incorporated before adding the next.
Add the flour mixture all at once. Using the paddle attachment mix until thoroughly combined.
Add in the dried fruit, nuts, and chocolate chips; mix using the paddle attachment or a silicone spatula.
