Quick Cooking Rolled Oats Recipe: Trail Mix Cookies

“Quick Cooking Oats” are rolled oats that have been coarsely chopped. You can either purchase them already chopped or make them yourself by slightly pulsing regular old-fashioned rolled oats in a food processor or blender. Quick cooking oats are wonderful in cookies and add a healthy touch. These Trail Mix Oatmeal Cookies are especially yummy.

Here’s a little trail mix history. I was surprised to learn that the traditional combination of nuts, raisins and chocolate as a trail snack dates back to the 1910s, when the idea was included in a popular camping guide.

Trail mix is a great snack to take along with you on the go, walking, hiking, biking, working, shopping, traveling or any time. Be sure to get a blend with only nuts, fruit and chocolate. Watch for added sugar and unnecessary ingredients, such as candy.

Carbohydrates from the whole grains in this recipe, along with the dried fruit, help create an energy boost and the protein and fat from the nuts help sustain that energy. I have two cookies for breakfast or for a snack or take some with me when I leave the house and feel satisfied for hours.
