After enjoying these 3 ingredient breakfast cookies, I decided to give them a little twist by adding in some nuts and dried fruits. It adds a little more texture and flavor, but they’re still easy to make! I also added a bit of flour to create a texture that’s a little more similar to a traditional cookie.

Trail Mix Cookie Ingredients

  • Bananas– Make sure your bananas are very ripe since there’s no added sugar in this recipe and the sweetness will come from the bananas.
  • Rolled Oats– For this recipe, you want to use old-fashioned oats or rolled oats, not quick oats. This will give the cookies a hearty, chewy texture.
  • All-Purpose Flour– You can substitute gluten-free flour, if needed.
  • Salt– A pinch of salt helps to bring out the sweetness of the cookies.
  • Chocolate Chips– These add a little more sweetness, but you can substitute with more nuts, if you want to keep the sugar down.
  • Walnuts– Feel free to substitute with pecans or almonds, if you don’t have walnuts available.
  • Shredded Coconut– I used sweetened coconut because that’s what I had in my pantry but unsweetened coconut shreds will work, too!
  • Raisins– These add a little sweetness, but you can use dried cranberries or cherries, instead!
