Tropical Trail Mix Cookies

Teresa

Tropical Trail Mix Cookies are something special. These amazing Chocolate Chip Cookies are filled with Trail Mix. That’s right. Not regular trail mix either. Tropical Trail Mix includes pineapple, mango, banana, papaya, craisins, raisins, cashews and almonds. Add a bag of miniature chocolate chips and you have a concoction made in heaven. 🙂

In early June, I wanted to make up some goodies for a long time associate in ministry who worked with my husband. I had so many bags of Tropical Trail Mix on hand that I decided to throw some of the mix in with the cookies. My husband loved them. I didn’t chop up anything – even the bananas. But at the high cooking temperatures they soften somewhat so it’s not like biting into a rock or anything!

We get this Tropical Trail Mix in that snack section at Walmart. So whether you enjoy eating it for snacks or want to enjoy a cookie version, it’s a delightful treat even your kids will enjoy.

Soften butter. Add granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs, baking soda, sea salt and real vanilla extract. Yes, that’s a whole TABLESPOON of real vanilla extract. No imitations.

Add unbleached all-purpose flour. (Bleached flour toughens baked goods). Add miniature chocolate chips and Tropical Trail Mix.

Stir, stir, stir, stir until the mixture is not only combined but starts to form large clumps. Really work all of the flour into the dough. This will take 4 to 5 minutes to do thoroughly by hand.

Pack the dough into a large cookie scoop before leveling off. Place on UNGREASED cookie sheets about 3 inches apart. If the dough crumbles out of the scoop, either the cookie dough wasn’t stirred long enough or it wasn’t packed into the cookie scoop well enough.

Bake at 350 degrees about 16 minutes. My cookies took about 18 minutes to bake completely. Rotate cookie sheets on racks about every 8 minutes during the baking time.
