To Die For Trail Mix Cookies
I mentioned last night that I was making cookies. What I did not mention is how delicious (and nutritious) these trail mix cookies are! I wanted to put them in their own post because I didn’t feel like glossing over their magnificence.
These cookies are REALLY good. I got the recipe from Angela at ohsheglows.com (of course). Everything I have made from that website has turned out deliciously. I had my eye on this recipe for some time, but was waiting until I got my smaller Vitamix container to make the oat flour. I had all the other ingredients staring at me whenever I opened the pantry.
Last night was the night. It was cold outside, my head was stuffed up, and the thought of baking delicious cookies to enjoy with a cup of tea was too tempting to resist.
I also learned an important lesson the other day when I went to the store. I can’t even call it a blonde moment since I am not blonde, so let’s just call it a moment of clarity. For those of you who may not have come to this realization yet, parchment paper is not the same as wax paper.
I don’t know why I just assumed they were. They’re not at all. I would read recipes that called for me to line the sheet with parchment paper and think “oh yeah, wax paper. I have that.” I would then wind up with a baking sheet with melted wax paper that I would have to scrape off. I thought I had some kind of specially coated sheet that wouldn’t allow the paper to work correctly. Nope, I just had the wrong paper.
